coolant
on: June 02, 2021, 12:26:42 PM
Hello couldn't find any thread that was relevant so..... my bike (2020) with 4000 km on it was not in use for a couple of weeks when i came to ride it i checked the fluids level and noticed the coolant had some powdery looking staff in it and it sank to the bottom of the over flow tank.
any one had the same problem? advise on what to do next would be much appreciated (:  couldn't find any information online and the closest thing i could figure out from online search is that the coolant is shot and needs to be replaced.

Personally I would flush the coolant and investigate further whats inside it. Then flush the system and replace. I didn't have any deposits in my coolant after 3 years when it was changed.

 Same here.

 Have you topped up the system with tap water at some point?
 If you are still in warranty I'd make a visit to the dealership.
Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

Same here. Mine was clean and nothing in reservoir but clean coolant. This also about 3 years old when I drained and flushed. I followed someone elses post about flushing procedure from this forum but cant remember who it was. All went as expected. Good luck.

No, i personally didn't add any coolant\or water, the coolant wasn't touched by me or a garage for that matter the only one how could have done something as moronic is adding water to the coolant was the dealer.
Unfortunately the dealer here is so bad that I wouldn't take my bike there even if it's under warranty which it is.

 I wasn't accusing you of being a moron.  :086:
 Anyway sounds like you are on your own.
 BartZ 's advice sounds good to me.
