    Coolant Question?

    Hi, just went to take out my bike (Street Triple RS) after work and something made me check the coolant level (don't do it every time I ride). The level is low in the expansion tank, halfway below the min line and the bottom of the plastic window.

    The bike still only has 350 miles on it and I'm sure I checked it when I first got it and it was fine.

    I haven't had any overheat issues even in some hot weather. The coolant level on the TFT dash has probably got up to around 2/3 or 3/4 max.

    Would running this low cause any engine damage and is it normal for coolant to deplete this soon??

    First liquid cooled bike my others have been air cooled Ducatis.

    Thx for any help.

    Don't worry about it. If yo fill it up to the mark it will just puke it out. Triumph has never seemed to be able to figure out the coolant tank. They all do it.

    Check under the radiator cap when it's cool. If there's coolant, you're fine.
