i had the same problem too, when my bike idle at stand still for about 3 to 5 mins. so i change the water seals and fan shalf. but to didnt help , so i change the radiator cap from a 1.1 to a .9. all these only help to delay the leak. so i livin with that problem, long as i check to coolant resev. and try not to let it idle at stand still for too long.

I had the same problem on my '98, which were known for leaking, and replaced both water and oil seals , and the impeller shaft with the'99 model which has a better coating on the shaft to prevent the seal from wearing a groove in it and causing leaks.
The parts are reletivly cheap,and you don't want to do the repair more than once if you don't have to! When pressing the seals in, just use a socket that is about the same size as the seal and it should go together pretty easy.
