Found an 03 after waiting patiently for one to show up locally for sale. I intend on doing a SM conversion and using it 90% street and maybe 10% trail. Guy wants $1900. The ad stated that the water pump seals had just been replaced. So I spoke to him several days ago and set up a showing today. When I texted him today he replied the bike was back at the shop that did the water pump seals because they were leaking.
What causes these seals to leak? Over heating? Age?
What are some other common issues I should look at when inspecting this one?
I'm mechanical but have limited experience with Yamaha Dirt bikes.
Anyone have a good pre-buy checklist that I could follow?
Very much appreciated in advance.
