Any Ideas before I change out the water pump?
Additionally: Any one ever had problems with the two Carb main gaskest increasing in size after being opened? I had an Air intake joint gasket that would not fit back into the lower groove after I changed the PAJ and a Float bowl gasket that leaks after removal. The intake Gasket is $18.00 and the FB gasket is $25.00 from Yamaha! Is this a racket or what!!!!

I've run straight water wetter and distilled water in my TLR for over a year now with no problems, just curious.

It very well could be fluid passing through the veins of the radiator. I have noticed that If I do a quick runup and take it around the block it is very quiet. However when I'm in the woods dealing with it I hear it quite a bit at low to mid throttle. There may be some air in the system that is moving and causing a vibration at high pressure. It cannot be a terminal condition as it has been going on now for months, and oil changes show only a normal amount of metal dust on the magnetic plug and never any metal shavings like a bearing or a race giving way. I ordered a water pump anyway that I'm going to keep in my trailer for emergencies. I also ordered an extra gasket so that I can pull the pump and inspect the impeller and bearing. I've got this cool raidator bleeder that a friend of mine made, you fill the system, pressureize it with a special cap then bleed it off with a dial on the overflow hose. Works great on cars, we bought and modified a WR cap....We'll See.
