Dean K Posted November 12, 2019 Report Share Posted November 12, 2019 I just came home from riding to find coolant dripping from right under the water pump, I have read there is a weep hole there that will drip if the outer water pump shaft seal in going bad. I see no evidence of water in the motor oil so I assume the inner water pump seal is still sealing. After looking up what parts I need I can only find one part number, but there are two seals. 1. Does anyone know if you order the one number and it comes as a kit with two seals? Or do I order two of that part number and they are the exact same seals? 2. I see there is a special water pump shaft removal tool. Do I need it or can I just dig the old seals out carefully? 3. If I need and use the tool does the gear drive and bearings stay in place when I remove the shaft and is it reverse thread or standard to loosen it? I have about 300 hours on the motor, is this about average time for a seal failure? I will check the water pump shaft for any wear also when I get into it. Thanks in advance for your help, Dean Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
