Wow, Im kind of piss at the dealership I bought my 00 GSX-R600 from. I haven't rode since tueday because it been cold and rainning. I went out to look at it and saw a puddle under the right hand side. I think it comeing from the clutch baskit, it's been down on that side. I don't see a hole or anything, maybe the gaskit broke or something. It's a dark green-ish looking subsince.

I really don't know, it smell to me like oil. it look like it comeing out of one of the bolts, it comeing from the right hand side if your looking at the bike from the front (black cover) the cover is beat up. (I have a paper tallow on the floor to drip on and it look like just plan oil on the tallow ( Is there oil in there)

P.S. How do you know when it a head gasket issues/cracied block etc beside if it mix of oil/freeze. I just asking because Im not sure if it is oil/freeze.

You can try some dye for the antifreeze, like an orange color or something. My recomendation though is if its a green color, and smells like oil, it most likely is an oil/antifreeze mix, theres only so much green stuff on the bike...

Its a gasket... like 5 or 6 bolts and some gasket sealer...

Fix it yerself. or at least let the dealership try and fix it, it is a bit unfair to just take your money back they probably didnt know about it. (Though, you should make sure you are getting the repairs for free, as irregardless its still something they missed).

Let us know how it turns out.

I think I know what the mix is, gas/oil. could that be posable? is it can how bad is it? I was thinking maybe it running to rick?

Went to the suzuki dealer on my break today, tryed to get them to just give me the parts so I could fit it myself. they told me they would "get it handle" if I brought them bike. So now Im talking to some people at work to give me and my bike a ride to the dealer.

Today I decided to take the fairing off my new/old bike to see how bad the damage is under them. Everthing look good beside the MAGNETO COVER busted, also when I was looking around I found some oil on the top of the RADIATOR OUTLE HOSE. There something on top of the hose but Im not sure what it is, dose it have oil in it?
