    At our bike club monthly skills after about 10min of slow riding I parked my bike and it threw up right out of the expansion drip hose, went on for about 10sec then stopped.
    Will check and change the coolant (been a few years since it was changed) first time this has ever happened?:eek:

    Mine did that last year. Turned out to be a bolt had come loose and dropped down to block the fan from turning. I got caught in traffic and it smoked a little - got home and it made a mess. Topped up the coolant (not realizing the fan problem), next day I hit heavier traffic and ended up with a cloud of white smoke, a pissed off rider, and a tow to the dealer who promptly found the problem and charged me next to nothing to fix it.

    I'd check your fan is not blocked.

    Looks like the dry heaves with a little bile. Hopefully there is no problem.

    The overflow bottle was still a wee bit over max even after hawking its guts up, ran a diagnostic check with tuneboy and all was well, checked all nuts and bolts in the surronding area(which I do every month) and all was tight.
    I will put it down to the bike being to close to Harleys today .:D
    If anyone has any more ideas please post them.
