Quick question

Hey guys I ran into a bit of trouble...
I've run a search on the site and couldn't find much on it.

After riding for a good while I stopped at a gas station to heard bubbling coming from the Radiator reservoir. followed by some coolant leakage on the ground...ok, I topped the reservoir to the "Full" line with some water, and after riding again noticed it was leaking. When I stopped it leaked to the point were the Reservoir went empty!

and I traced the top hose on my 2005, to find it spilling out all the fluid...I figured it's the "overflow" hose, but I'm not really sure if it's just supposed to be hanging there, since it's spitting out all the reservoir fluid, or if I need to trace it back into the radiator some where....

I need a Haynes Repair manual for my bike....
Any help please?

Let me take a look at mine and see where it goes. At least 1 of the hoses there has to go back to the radiator.

Thanks Vtec44 I'd love to know if that top hose is fine there, the bottom hose does indeed recirculate back to the radiator. Either way, the bike is just fine now...It's not leaking anymore. The reservoir fluid is staying at full after riding for 3 days since. Weird, but I think it's because I was riding near Twentynine Palms, CA area. The Mohave "High Desert." It probably got so hot it started boiling and spilling out fluid from that top hose. That weather is hostile for performance on my turbo charged cars, etc.

I'm still getting a repair Manual though! It's essential!

I didn't get a chance to look at the 250, but there's an overflow hose that goes to the ground on my 600RR... at least I hope that it is lol
