2011 GT spewing coolant after bike is off

Bringing this thread back to life. 2011 GT here

Same issue. Temp gauge fine. Rode the bike a few times since the weekend. Shut the bike off and it's spews about a cup of coolant.

Coolant was at Max in reservoir. then down to below Min.

Started riding again and returned to normal in reservoir.

Replaced coolant a few years ago. 1 time over summer the high temp light came on and then never came back on again after i turned bike off and on.
Maybe air? will look for pinched hoses.

Anyone else?

Cleaned the radiator cap really well which had some crud on it, nothing bad.

I called the dealer and they recommended to keep at or near minimum in the reservoir. They have seen where if you have at Max it will spew. I told them I have had at max for 5 years and no issues. Makes sense. Just like a car- hot and cold levels.

So I have it and the Mid point between Max and Min. will go for a ride warm her up and report back
