Wrf 450 water pump seal leak

Should I ride my bike?? It dribbles a little when started from cold and seems to stop once warmed up, but could it let go altogether and over heat / seize the bike!!

they will leak at start up and then stop when warm for quite a while
you are safe to go riding til you fix it
Mines been leaking all this year but I haven't got round to fixing it (again) yet, as it doesn't seem to like sitting over the winter
This is the third year in a row where its leaked after getting out from winter storage, but was fine when I put it away at the start of winter

The seal can decide to leak any way it will, pretty much at will, so don't depend on its behavior staying the same. If you ride it with this flaw, check the coolant level frequently. There's barely two pints of it to begin with.
