2012 coolant leak

Has any one else had a coolant leak on the 2012? Mine is leaking and running down the oil pan. It looks to be coming from behind the water pump some where. Gets worse after it has been sitting for a few days. It stayed at the dealer for a few days and they said they couldn't see any leak get it back home and there it is. Service guy told me all water cooled vehicles leak some coolant. I have had quit a few cbrs and have never had a coolant leak form any of them except this one.

I don't see that being normal. Bring it back. Show then the pictures.

To there defense it didn't do this while it was there. I rode it to the dealer so it was dry by the time I got there. And it didn't leak while it was there. I just felt like the system should have been pressure tested. Not just set it in the back to see if it leaks.

Agree they could have pressurized the coolant system. Coolant doesn't fully evaporate either it should have left some sort of crystallization on engine or what not...

Sounds like the same BS Honda gave me about all bikes burning oil when I had my POS '08.

Yes, I went through and checked them. It is coming from behind the water pump. I can't find any other signs of it running down from any where higher than that.

That's bullshit, your service guy is a dumb ass.
If coolant is leaking there's a problem,it could be as simple as tightening a hose clamp.
I would find a different shop if this is the best they can do

I tightened all the clamps myself so it is not from them. Unless it is a bad hose.
