This is more for a YFZ quad, but it's the same issue on most 450fs.

My wife's yfz is leaking coolant from the water pump weep hole. I can't get parts, and riding this t day weekend is a big deal for her because she hasn't ridden in a long time due to pregnancy.

I can only find the seals in stock. I know the impeller shaft and bearing need to be replaced to.

Can I bandaid this with just replacing the outer deal just for one riding trip?

Does anyone know where to find parts on short notice in LA?

Only if it holds coolant that long.
