I noticed I had some coolant leaking, and upon a good look it seems to be coming from a small drain hole at the bottom of the pump. Why is it doing this and is this a problem, I do ride on the street and I assume it could be happening because I am idling at a light? and getting to hot but we do have a overflow bottle.
Yes, the hole is a drain to allow coolant/oil to leak out if a seal fails. The water pump is driven by a shaft from the engine which has an oil seal, then it goes into the water pump which has a seal. This drain hole is located in between the 2 seals. This is by design to releive the leak to the ground instead of water in the oil or visa versa. Mine did it at 90 miles,. second ride after buying it brand new. I replaced the water pump seal and so far, so good. I have about 250 miles on it now. Seems everyone in here had the same trouble early on. Kinda like fork seals.

Yamadirt, yes I have it motarded. But I do still play in the dirt easy transformation, as it is a basic swap of parts. Takes like an hour to do.
Also have it plated as not enough track time to keep a person happy. I don't know how to post pics on this site but if you check out supermoto junkie, this is a link wit a pic.

Anyway know another guy with a 426 plated and he races as well. Where about are you?
