I rebuilt my water pump in my 98' wr400fk. Oil seals, bearings, o-ring, and impeller shaft. Put the bike back together drove around for a minute and still leaking. Any ideas as to what I might have done wrong, or what I should look for?

You likely put the seal in backwards or nicked it on the way in...SC

Yep, been there. The water seal is in backwards, be easy on getting it out you be able to re-use it. Leak will go away when you flip the seal. :thumbsup:
