Hey guys,

A little bit of coolant leaks out of a small hole between the fins on the left side of the engine every time I rev it hard. Is it normal for a ex500 to have the little hole and coolant coming out of it?

TIA

I wouldn't think that having coolant coming out of the engine at any time would be considered a good thing or even a normal thing..

But asking the techies on will yeild better responses

It's comming from the pipes on the top of the head, then runsa into the Spark plug hole and out the drain hole that you see.
The fix. Remove the two top hoses from the head and clean the holes and the pipes and the O rings . apply some vaseline or any grease and re fit . that ought to do it.
