So I noticed a small little puddle of coolant on my garage floor. I have a 2013 Night rod, and haven’t hand really any problems. A couple years ago had to replace a coolant hose.

It looks like this is leaking from the bolt? Does that even make sense? What else could it be? My bike has always been garaged..

Check the hose clamps on the top of the radiator, they loosen over time.

Hose it off, run it and look again. Looks like what I had several years ago, damage from a stone or other road debris. Created a tiny leak that weeped slowly.
In the end I removed the radiator, took it to a local repair shop, they flushed it, pressure tested it and patched it with an epoxy they use for aluminum radiators.
Haven't had an issue with it since. Cost me about $35 and my time.
