My '03 Vee is new to me this past May, and in 3 months I've double the mileage on it. The trouble is it seems to be using coolant. I've checked and there's no creamy ooze on the oil cap and no streaks the last time I changed the oil, so I'm assuming the head gaskets are good. I've had the coolant changed, there are no obvious signs of a leak on the hoses, and no coolant puddles under the bike. Yet every week or so I have to fill the coolant tank up. Would your first guess be the rad cap? Change the hoses? Pinhole leak I can't see on the rad somewhere?
