Change both the impeller and the seal while you are in there. The shaft of the impeller gets rusted and pitted and you run the risk of it not providing a good seal.
How will I know if the impeller shaft is bad? Sorry for the lack of knowledge. Nvr messed with a water pump b4 but thank you for the help
There is a bearing there too. Change it all. Don't take the chance. That is one assembly that will cause a lot of damage to your bike. My head is in the shop right now getting reconditioned because of a failed water pump.
