well the back story is that the last time I rode my 426 when we were done riding and loading the bikes up I saw a little puddle(a couple tablespoons maybe) of coolant under the bike in the truck bed. I took a look at the water impeller area and saw that there is a little weep hole like the water pump in a car. I was wondering if it is like an automobile where they are designed to leek a little thru the weep hole to warn you it is about to go. As I was ordering the gasket kit to replace the water pump/impeller etc, the guy who works on my bike said (in so many words or less) " sometimes those Yamahas will dribble water but then they just seems to stop" Is this true? Just wondering if I can sneak in a ride on this bike(before repairing it). I just spent two weeks riding northern MI on my 300xcw and I think it needs a break.
