I noticed a few "White" spots on the heads. I thought maybe it was some windex i used. But i opened hte coolant bottle. My coolant line looks okay and i cant find a leak.

What do you think?

I guess so. I checked it when it was cold and it was a half inch below the line. Just filled it up with some coolant.

Shawn,

Mine did that some time ago. I cleaned it with S100 engine cleaner and never saw it again. I think it is just water stains. It is almost crusty when you go to clean it off.

I think so. I cleaned it and went for a hot midday ride. Saw a few more droplets. Definetly from that metal cap. Is there a gasket for That cap? What's the part numbers I need to replace it?

:thumb: Why wait a week or more on the MoCo when you can get the part you need the day you need it. I'm happy to pass along the knowledge I have.
