Has anyone had an issue with their rad drying out but the overflow staying full? My bike runs fine, doesn't blow white smoke or has a loss of power. Could it be a hole in the radiator?

definite leak somewhere, you need to pressure test or run it into a radiator shop for them to test it. Our shops out here will test for free.

Put some dye or food coloring in the water, let it idle for a few minutes with the fan disconnected (to keep from blowing the water around and making it harder to see where the leak is coming from) and watch where it comes out.
