I have noticed that the last 2 times i took a ride there is a spray of sorts on my front chrome cylinder head cover, not sure if that what its called. Im not sure what it is. I tightened the large hose coming out the top of the radiator. I will see if that helps. I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas, or had this happen to them. In the picture you can kinda see the haze or spray on the cover.

I get that a lot... mostly bugs or if there is water on the road. The front cylinder head isn't shielded from any oncoming elements from the road ;)

Werent the VTX1300's known for having a leaky radiator hose clamp???, I'd just go over all your hose clamps and see if that helps!

If it's coolant, you'll probably have that odor (if your familiar with it) on a hot engine. Also, I suspect you'd also see a puddle under the bike after you park, although not necessarily.

Is the spray oily, greasy, or dry? does it have any odor, or color?

That was up by the rad fill. Can't tell by the pic, but it looks like road grime/slime. Coolant should feel slimey and smell,

I dont think its road grime, i have 1200 miles on the bike and have not noticed anything like this until my last 2 rides. From feeling it i think its coolant I tightened all the clamps in the area and will wait to see if it helps. I checked all my fluids and they all look ok. Im going for a ride today and check to see what happens.

Check fork seals

Looks like fork oil! How are the fork seals? Did you hit massive pot holes or a big one recently? Fork seals are right at same height and oil is clear plus has little odor. No mechanic just looking at symptoms. If your radiator has a problem YOU WOULD KNOW IT!!!

P.S. I have noticed only chilly damp nights that all the plastic chrome gets FOGGED/Shows condensation!!!

Check the brake block for loose fittings, I was just out looking at Fury and noticed brake block at that area...Since this may cause real fine squirt of fluid only when you squeeze brake lever try your brakes while inspecting lines,block etc...

Update

I tightened all radiator hose clamps and I have not seen the fluid. It looks like that solved the issue. Thanks for the help.
