Fwiw...

My 2015 hasn't leaked a drop of coolant in 6000 miles of riding. When I took in in for service the dealer asked if I'd seen any leakage, showing me the weep hole. Being a member of this forum I had kept an eve on it.

They said that they had seen "only a handful" that were leaking, mostly 2013 and 2014 model years. They said if I saw anything to being it in for warranty repairs.

BTW, it's not unusual at all for automotive water pumps to weep and leak, it's unusual that they don't. If there isn't a puddle of coolant under the car it 'aint busted. It's a whole lot more obvious when it does it on a bike.
