My radiator has been leaking so I took tightened the hose clamps and I noticed the cold fill tank is full. It also has greenish corrosive material on the bottom of the cold fill tank. I took the refill cap off and it is corrosive there as well. I was thinking the system is plugged and causing a backup causing the leak. Do these systems need to be flushed?

Any help would be needed…thanks

Just curious, what year is your bike and how many miles does it have?

I'm not a motocycle mechanic, but I do work on my own dirt bikes (2 strokers). When I put water in the radiator, I always use distilled water. If I can, I always get my radiator coolant already pre mixed. Sounds like someone put regular tap water in your system.
