this just started not to long ago . so i replaced the inner and out water pump seals . went for a ride , still had coolant coming from the weep hole . so next i replaced the shaft and both seals again. went for a ride and the same thing happen again coolant out of the weep hole. so again i tore the thing down , this time i replaced the bearing ,shaft, both seals and gasket. i have a boysen water pump cover on the bike also. well you guessed it after the first ride its still leaking . what now? iv e tried a new radiator cap also with no luck. :devil:
