Coolant leak?

Within the last month I purchased a 700xx and it is the first quad I have used that was liquid cooled. When I ride i can hear a hissing sound once in a while (kinda like water hitting the header). I was wondering if this is a normal thing or something that should be addressed. I can specifically hear it when im cruising in second gear or pull off the throttle. Any help with fixing this would be greatly appreciated.

You should not hear any kind of hissing sound... Things to check: Running hot? Coolant loss? Loose connections on cooling system? Pinhole leaks in hoses? But, YES by all means check it out.

I tightened all the hose clamps down and it didnt do anything. I also rerouted the overflow line so i could c it and nothing came out while riding.
