Parker water cooled GVM142-100 leak

After about 6000 miles several the electric Empulse (Parker GVM142-100W or custom GVM142-100N) motorcycles have developed leaks. On mine it may be a combination of coolant and oil, because it appears much thicker than just coolant but with an orangish color. Also when bleeding the coolant line it is still very watery. Has anybody seen this before or know if it is just a gasket failure? If so, is there any known fix that does not risk encoder misalignment or associated tuning?  As the pictures in the link below show the leak is very thick and seems to be either dried coolant or a mixture of oil from the transmission.
