Hello I am now concerned after reading something on here . I always keep a eye on my fluid levels so I notice any changes .

From cold my coolant in the overflow has gone over the upper level line . Before it was perfectly in the middle of the upper and lower and was like this for ages
when I run my bike up to when the fans come I see some bubbles in the tank.

I did drop the bike on me drive so I was thinking maybe it took in some air . But I’ve had it running for ages with the fan on and the level doesn’t seem to go back to where it was before . Also once it’s cooled back down the level hardly drops.
The bike runs absolutely fine doesn’t overheat or anything. I read a post on here someone has exactly the same issues and he said that the head gasket was leaking . Can anyone help please?

I would always start with a brand new Kawasaki OEM Radiator cap. A bad cap can cause a lot of problems.

what coolant are u using?
premix or self mixed? what ratio?

how old is the coolant? age and mileage if possible

is the coolant in the radiator clear? any oil-like residues?
what about the color of engine oil through the sight glass? any signs of coolant mixed into the oil?
