I have a 2015 R1 and noticed the pipe behind the headers has leaked radiator fluid. So much that it's in dry clumps everywhere underneath the pipe. No more fluid in the overflow. Has anybody had this happen? Bike has around 11,000 miles and still has stock exhaust. Bought used with a current Yamaha Warranty.

mayb u can check on the 2 main "plastic" pipes (one of the pipe complete with a thermostat) for the cooling system on both sides. If it does leak from either one of the pipe, i would suggest u change both them or all to samco hoses but the thing is that the samco hose (replacing the oem hose with thermostat) does not come with thermostat (by-pass).

Yeah man, I actually just found this same issue on my 16s, it's a very minor leak and I'm almost at 20k but I haven't seen much posted by anyone online, I have herd of people RTB puddying the gasket and re installing everything but I think I'll order everything new OEM then RTB it just to be safe for the future.
