Good point though, I'll inspect them all a bit more closely.
I was getting a bit of a coolant leak right at a fitting on my '06 due to a degrading hose. Ended up replacing the hoses with silicon and it took care of it. Probably not a bad idea to do them either way.

Thanks Jae.

I did inspect it all and they seem to be recent hoses without any brittle or worn areas, etc. The hose is molded that way (appears to bulge out) due to the large outlet from the water pump and smaller diameter hose to the radiator.

For now I think I am good, but may order silicon hoses as you mentioned just for good measure. I did order a new gasket as I was able to isolate the exact spot of the drip.

While ordering the gasket, I went ahead with a new chain and new rear pads.

This should finish up the bike. I may look into a tune for the ECU but that can wait a bit.

Bike should be back together completely and on the road Friday.
