Help Diagnosing a Coolant Leak?

Doesn't seem to be a high pressure leak. Coolant will generally pool a few hours after a ride.

Cracked Thermostat/Squirter?

Actually,you have at least two leaks. One is from the weep hole. Monitor the leak and keep riding. If it gets bad, get it fixed.
The second one I see is coming from the vicinity of he thermostat and should be looked at asap. If you look at the screw clamp and hose coming off the bottom of the thermostat housing, you will see coolant residue on it.

If you live anywhere close to Rockland county, pm me and Iíll help you sort it out.

As above you have two.... a leaky thermostat and weep hole leak.

Clean it all up and check again.

replace the clamp or check its tight,
Read my threads on the coolant leak issue (mine is now sorted) read the tech release from the factory as to the leak and how they stop themselves from replacing every pump under warranty I have posted this on more than one occasion.

If Ducati admit the pump seal is the problem they could have an expensive recall I insisted min as done under warranty.
On removing my old pump and inspecting the seal it was easy to see the problem and the weak design, the issue is the Panigale water pump is a pain to get out compared to other models.

But take advise from the experienced know it alls on this forum....they say its normal

so normal it was never mentioned in the hand book, so normal it never did it from day one so normal that Ducati never made an easy to inspect or replenish the lost coolant (we have to remove fairings to inspect and fill coolant)fuck off normal a water leak is a serous problem

With a torch hard up to the window you can see coolant level, tested with a led lenser and a UV light.

Mine isn't leaking but wondering
With the water pump can you fit a aftermarket seal to stop leaking?
