Wow, what a great offer! Dan I will start with the dealer that did the job. They have to fix it because they owe me a job properly done. If I'm not satisfied, then I may get to your place after email to you (still got it). Or even if I'm satisfied, I may get to your place and have "une p'tite frette" and a chat. Stay tune...

Merci Dan

Anytime my friend ! Been a while since my last visit to You Dan ,and You probably still have my phone number also

I suppose You got the job done in ST-HYAC or in ST-HUB , since You have mentioned this in the first post ". . . go to the dealer (15 km ride) " and , just curious why not at the nearest one in ST-CÉS

Another important thing You did not mention in your first post , because of this . . . " I asked them also to change brake pads "
You did not or I am missing it , mentioned anywhere if the brake pads where changed ONLY on the back OR on ONLY on the front ,or if it was ALL around . . . important to know because if even only one caliper piston is draging on the front left caliper , the disc pads will be draging on the left front disc and also on the rear one

Also be aware that rear brake draging can be cause by an improperly mounted left front caliper (not free to move ) but ,this is really simple to check .

Daniel

Dan, brakes were changed all around. BTW, since last year (or the year before), the Honda Motorcycle that was located in Chambly moved to St-Basile and this is the one.

BTW#2, I overestimated the distance between my home and that dealer which is actually 9 km according to Google Map. But tabar... it was cold that day when I came back from the dealer last fall!

As I remember, it was not the time for "une p'tite frette".

I have this problem all the time. Google maps seems to consistently show a much shorter distance than my odometer records.

Yes, but it may take few weeks; damn cold here as you know (-25C with the wind chill factor tonight). The ST is in the shed still dripping some coolant...

I've heard that some are quite difficult to reach. BTW, this dripping happens every winter and as soon as it is warm enough, it stops. But I know, I will have to do it at some point.

Anyone ever did a round of hose clamps tightening?

I have never seen a coolant leak of that size.
I would consider a leak this size to be substantial and of need of attention.
Generally winter leaks can be explained by sudden lower temperatures for bike sitting in unheated garages. These leaks are normally found coming from the water pump seal and a small in nature, several drops.
The first thing I would do is see if the source can be located.
The thermostat housing sits in a location that usually drips onto the front engine cover and trail of fluid is down the front engine cover.
The hose clamps leaking will show up on the right front engine case again as a trail of fluid or a stain where the fluid has run.
On the right side lower black piece look through the hole with a flashlight and look for a stain on the engine case at the front right edge, in front of the exhaust pipe.
One other leak source can be the water pump seal. A mechanical seal that is known for leakage when the temperatures drop on bikes sitting in unheated garages. These seals also have a self-healing ability when the bike is ridden because of the way they seal, friction.
Your leak looks excessive for the common mechanical seal leak.

You had the bike serviced recently.
Was the coolant catch bottle topped up?

See if you can find the source of the leak.
A mirror and a flashlight can locate most anything leaking on these bikes.
We can fix this.

And yes I think we have all had the hose leak syndrome.
Common, generally a one time tightening of the clamps cure.
And yes again it can be a bitch. It requires the lifting of the throttle bodies.

A brief description of the water pump seal I wrote up some time ago.
