I just had this same leak. Although my leak was pure coolant coming out. Ended up being a bad o-ring behind the junction to the vertical head. the part is about $1.00 but a bitch to get to because of the frame.
1. Drain your coolant.
2. Use a swivel head ratchet to get to the two bolts holding the housing on.
3. Remove the old o-ring from the back of the housing.
4. Clean the back of the housing
5. Install new o-ring
6. Put it all back together
7. Fill coolant and run the bike for a while and go for a short ride and see if there is still a leak.
Thanks guys!!! I just came back from Greece. I tightened all the fittings again and to it for a ride around a little and let the bike run. Haven't seen any coolant dripping or any
leak stains. So looks like it my have be a loose connection. But I did see some oil coming through.
