Coolant leak

Took the sled out for a quick ride last Saturday everything went well. Last night I noticed a very small spot of coolant under it. Started looking and noticed a drip is hanging on to the driver. I've searched high and low for a source of the leak but haven't found any. I see no damage to the heat exchangers and the clamps I can reach all seem to be tight. I guess I'm gonna have to tear it down then pressure test the system. Anyone have any ideas? It's a 2015 Zr 6000 rr. A few months ago during my preseason inspection I put about a cups worth of coolant in it. Thought it was just from the system burping out air pockets.

Could have just been a little over full? Clean it off and run it. Make sure the tank is not over filled or it will push the excess out. Run it again and then take a look see.

I noticed it is over full. I'll pull some out and keep an eye on it. The only thing that makes me unsure is the location of the drip. Thanks

I lost a heat exchanger from hairline cracks inside the tunnel protector rails. Do you have studs and tunnel protectors?

It isn't all that much to pull the tank, look and see if you have a loose clamp somewhere, bottom of the coolant tank, motor mounts,

Heres your cooling system

Thanks for the diagram! I'm gonna sneak out and tear it down as soon as the boy goes to bed.

Didn't have to tear it apart. I pulled the secondary and could reach the clamps. Really wanted to pressure test it but the local big box parts house didn't have the cooling system pressure tester for the small rad cap.

Sounds like what I had going on. Found a bad molding job on the fitting below the reservoir, that's welded into tunnel heat-x. On the fitting part that your hose goes over, little lip at top, and surface where the hose clamps. On that clamp area was a drip of aluminum. If that doesn't say nuisance mystery drip, I don't know what would.
