2014 CTX 700 N 4200 miles.
Bought used in Oct this year.
All is well till I noticed a wet spot on garage floor yesterday. Bike has been sitting approx 10 days.
Appears to be green coolant.
My question is about the reservoir. Has what looks like a drain valve at bottom. Can anyone verify?

No drain valve that I am aware of...

A couple of people have had loose hose clamps.

No drain valve that I know of but it appears that overflow fills the tank from the bottom and exits vie the hose near the top when the tank is full. If the tank is overfull and is constantly pushing coolant out the tank check that the radiator fan is running when it is supposed to. Trail Tech makes a coolant temp gauge for around $50.00 that I have installed that works really well. I spend a lot of time at idle in traffic and it’s nice to monitor the water temp as it goes up and down when the fan turns on and off.

update turned out to be a pinhole punched in coolant tank-probably from road debris of some sort.
New tank from Honda under $50--all good (y)
