Ok, so i was sitting at a stoplight and antifreeze started shooting all over my leg out of the reservoir. so i tested the radiator cap and it was shot, so i got a new one, but now what happens is the bike will slowly drip out all my anti-freeze until it's pretty much empty. i took out the thermostat and it opened up at about 175 or so, so it's not the thermostat. the bike usually heats up to about 230 max when i'm idling in traffic. does anyone have any suggestions? thanks!

Where is the coolant leaking from now?Still from the surge tank?Sounds like its over heating.Have you checked the water pump.Is your cooling fan coming on at all.If not check the fan switch.Usually its the temp switch for the fan, but the pump could also cause over heating.Try running some water wetter in your cooling sytem, it helps a bit.
