Slow leak coming out of the weep hole in the water pump cover. Anybody gone riding with this? I would love to get about a one hour ride in and then replace the O ring.

I wouldn't ride it like that. Go buy a water pump seal and fix it, it really doesn't take that long.

how cold is it were the bike is stored? I live in NC, doesn't get to cold here but went to the mountains over night, temps were in the low teens. In the morning coolant was weeping from the water pump whole. Checked fluids, started it up. Once warm it stopped leaking. It has never leakes since. I think the seal shrunk a little do to the excessive cold.
