Yet another water pump thread.

With a bike being so new... is it possible the impeller is bad? Is replacing the seals a fix or a bandaid?
Obvouisly, I'm quite bummed about this considering the age and mileage of the bike.
Whats the next step? Replace everything? Replace the seal? Tear down and inspect?

unfortunately, there's no way to tell unless you get it apart and take a look.
i've done this twice on my '05. I buy the necessary parts, then just return the ones i don't use.

Make sure its just not the overflow line leaking down into your skid plate.
Good point... i never looked, just assumed.
I'm a little confused though, doesn't the overflow line go from the rad back to the tank? Isn't it sealed? Where is the line you are referring to?
