gsxr 1000 K2 - WATER BEADING ON THE RADIATOR ?????

Hi, has anyone ever come acroos this problem before ?

I have a gsxr 1000 K2, the coolant has recently been changed.

On going to ride it after a lot of steam started to rise from between the front end. Water is forming small beads on the radiator front, then steaming off with the heat of the metal folds, but i can't see a leak coming from anywhere specific.

Does anyone know if the rdiator is knackered or an air block etc ?

All the best

If they flushed it & let water run all over the radiator & it's the first time you're riding it, it could just be cooking off the leftover coolant. If it does it for more than 5-10 minutes somethings wrong. Check the coolant level before you run it again to make sure it's full.
