Hi everyone. After turning my new to me AT on, i noticed coolant dripping from under the engine. Is there a hose that goes somewhere or is it just a breather hole?

Your water pump is leaking. I replaced mine shortly before the warranty ran out, I tried contacting Honda for some help but they said that the dealer was the only remedy. being that I don’t trust anybody to work on my stuff I just ate the cost of the pump. It’s a easy job, search my posts for water pump and you’ll find more info.

Thanks for replying. I’ll definitely check your post. I just ordered the pump through partzilla. None of the dealers have the pump in stock and told me it would take 30-60 days to get it Lol

I just started the bike and it dripped maybe 5-6 drops upon cold start. I let it run for 5 minutes and took it out for a spin. Parked in the garage and after shutting it off, not one drop

That's kind of how mine would do, but not a drop since replacing the pump.

It probably swells when warm and doesn't leak. Then weeps a little when it's cooled down. That's indicative of a failing seal. Pretty soon temp won't matter and it'll weep more often.
