Coolant leak

Allright I got a coolant leak now on my outty I've checked he coolant lines and nothing seems to be wrong, but there was coolant all over the snow and some on the engine. where do you think the problem could be? Would it be a big fix if it was the radiator? This happened about a week ago and I've been too scared to run it since.

let it sit in one spot running and see where it drops from and follow that back.

What kinda outy do you have? I would assume weeping hole on back of water pump. It's warranty if you still have it. I read somewhere that if it is to small to find a guy put a small piece of cotton over his weeping hole to find out that thats where it was coming from.

It helps to know what year the quad is,..does it have the new reservoir tank/cap. Does it leak standing still or just when running. Happened just once? Could be many different points of leakage, bleeder screw, hose clamp, weap hole, rad cap, simply got hot and "burped" a little coolant.........and then the worse case scenario......crack in block/case.

I haven't heard about the new reservoir tank/cap? Does this affect the 07 Outlander Max 800? And did someone ask if it was pre-08 year and if so was there a recall?
