Water pump gasket leaking

Question for the group: my water pump seal is more than just weaping, itís leaking about and ounce or more after each ride. Would it be proper to put in a new gasket, or add some gasket sealant to the original gasket and call it good. Thoughts?

what year is your bike? cover flat? try and rock it on a window or mirror. is it a webbed cover from 2002+

is it coming from a weep hole on the front face of the engine behind the hose?

2008 husaberg FE 450. Not sure if itís the seal or gasket. I have a gasket on order. Hope that solves it!!!

Weeping coolant or oil from the weep hole is the Achilles heel of a Husaberg. It is the most common issue and plenty has been written about it.

Taffmeisters sells a kit with all of the parts needed. You will notice it contains a bearing with an oil seal on one side of it. This is often an overlooked item that should be replaced when replacing the water pump seal imo.

https://www.taffmeisters.co.uk/produ...oducts_id=2394


Once the water pump shaft ( actually the counter balancer shaft ) begins to wear, from the lip of the seal cutting a groove in the shaft, a very small amount of coolant weeping is considered normal even with a brand new seal.

Australian member ORANGEBERG has a upgrade for the water pump seal. His Facebook page is Orange Motorcycle Service Center husaberg729@gmail.com
