Check the hose clamps on the water pump hoses. Even though the pump is on the left side the coolant could possibly migrate to the opposite side.

I've had coolant drips from the various hoses in the past that have been remedied by tightening the clamps and presently have a small amount of coolant dripping from the weep hole in the water pump. Even though I picked up a new pump, but it's not serious enough to warrant tearing things apart right now. Eventually I'll get round to changing it.

Had a similar problem but mine was my front fork seals. If you can park it on a long sheet of paper, finding the source may be easier. Don't forget that fluids will often travel sideways down body parts... Good luck

I think I found the response. Took me a little bit, but then I'm not really all that good at interpreting the responses of the masses. I hated those "Where's Waldo" books. Dang hidden messages on Beatles albums drove me nuts.

What prize do I win?
