Coolant leak question

I noticed a small amount of coolant leaking from the radiator area after a long ride in september, found it was coming from where the upper radiator hose meets the radiator, noticed the outlet on the rad isent perfectly round but more oval, so i tightened the clamp thiniking that was it but after a long snow ride last week I noticed the snow around the rad was green, question is do u think outlet is suppost to be oval shapped? Theres no way it was damaged all tucked away under there and I havent wrecked the quad anyway.

They tend to oval if you over tighten the hose clip.

mine leaked when i first got it from that same location and i had to tighten the clamp up a little. if you have already tightened it and it still leaks, take the hose off and check if there are any cracks. get a new clamp and try to re-seat the hose.
