2006 GP base
No more wet frame rail. No drips. No leaks around the repair areas as well as coolant temp sensor or T-stat. Still smelling hot coolant and the coolant in the reservoir is slowly dropping. Oil shows no sign of coolant and vice-versa. Any ideas?? Thanks.

Same areas, most likely, just didn't get it sealed right. Harsh, but most likely things

rear cover gasket.
06 should have the shitty aluminum/oring style rear cover gasket, they split and leak coolant externally or internally just like the paper gaskets...except i seem to find they are failing at a rate greater than the paper gaskets which ive found split more than 50% of the time....ive never come across an alum gasket that wasnt damaged.
