My '81 GL500 is "weeping" coolant from that typical place, at the back of the motor. Not a lot, so I am not sure if this is allowable. I read on the Triple By-pass page (please don't tell me I have to do that!) that the weep hole is there to allow spillover to weep out, and this is stated as if it is a normal thing at times. I haven't yet examined the area carefully to check if it is leaking from the gasket or from the weep hole. Is a general occasional weeping situation something to be alarmed about?

Oh joy two threads.

If you don't ride it much ride it more and see if there's a change. If it continues or gets worse then it's a problem.

Nah. I think I'll just post not to drill and tap the weep hole and run a hose to the coolant reservoir. Now that I said that DO NOT DRILL AND TAP THE WEEPHOLE.

So, should I use a metric tap for this mod?
