Default coolant leak

Ok guys for the past three times I been out rideing I ha e notice a slick spot on the ground when I park. So tonight I took the side fairing off and notice its dripping around the area of the water pump. I can squeeze the hose and it leaks does this mean I need a new pump or can the thermostat just be messed up. Bike don't over heat at all

you said it leaks when you squeeze a hose...where is it leaking when you do that? the hose (if that's the case you need to replace the hose and/or tighten/replace any clamps that may not be holding at this point) or between to parts like the pump housing and the block (if this is the case, you may need to remove the pump and replace the gasket).

Sounds like a bad coolant hose or clamp, did you try to tighten the clamp? If it's leaking around where the water pump meets the block, then you might need a new gasket. Any pics?
