Re: Weep hole leaking oil

anyone have an issue with a grove on the WP shaft? I have started to lose a substantial amount of coolant and could no longer ride without being concerned of not making it home. I pulled the cover and noticed a grove on the shaft from the WP seal. the seal looked in great shape and I'm concerned I will replace everything and still have the same problem because of this grooved shaft.
What are your thoughts on this?

Re: Weep hole leaking oil

change the seal and see what happens. depending on the year bike you have, not too hard to do.
seals were changed over the early series of the 01-08 engines. maybe your new seal lip will not fall in the groove

Bike is a 2001 FS650 Motard. Any advice on a fix to my problem will be greatly appreciated.

Hello, I have an 06 Fe 550 thats leaking oil out of the weep hole. the bike only has 80 hrs on it too. Is is as simple as replacing the oring by removing the water pump cover and pulling the Impeller and shaft out?

well you won't pull the shaft out. that is placed inside thew crankcases.

you should really look to change the polyamide bearing in the cover but they stopped making them about 4 months ago. I sell a 'left cover repair kit' in which I can only put in a 6201 bearing that has a high resistence to coolant/water penetration.

they are the choices in my web shop. I've been throwing ina free drill bit to see if owners can be encouraged to drill due south through the bottom of the water pump housing and let it straight out there.... up to the owner though!

The special 6201 bearing is the problem most of the time.
This is a fix.
