So I just bought my 2009 Kawasaki Ninja ER-6N and its getting cold outside so I haven't been riding it. So today I let my bike run for about two minutes and i see some weird puddle. I traced it to the front of the engine and I am not sure at all but I think it might be coolant because I am sure it isn't engine oil. So if anyone knows for sure what it might be and how to fix it, I would very much appreciate it.
That happened to my ninja 650r the other day as well! I looked at it and smelled it and it seemed to be water coming from a hose.
Looked it up and i think its normal...one of the hoses helps releave vapor pressure or something like that if im not mistaken
But dnt take my word for it im new at this
Ok I got a better look at the fluid and its neon green looking so Its a coolant leak I just cant figure out where its coming from.I really dont want to go to the dealer if it is something I can fix my self.
Location: On an intergalactic cruise, in my office

The 250 has a radiator that is mounted very high and many of the coolant lines and hoses are above the headers, including a remote filler cap and bleed point. I would say that's more like to be the source than the head gasket.
