Since Forum member "Crash" posted his discovery of coolant running down the side of his '03, I was concerned about my '03 having the same problem, especially since I'll be ripping accross Arizona this spring. Apparently, Crash and several other riders have experienced the nipple snapping off of the cap of the coolant recovery bottle. The newer caps have a tab for lifting off the cap as it seems when the cap is lifted by that nipple where the hose connects weakens the nipple end (Paris Hilton would love this). HDI now sells just the cap and hose assembly for under $8. Although it's covered under warranty, I went ahead and bought one to install when I do the 5K in a few weeks...an once of prevention, etc. I've attached photos of the bag for your reference.
