I'm back! With a problem :-(
« on: August 07, 2017, 06:43:10 pm »
Greetings, programs!  I've owned my 2003 Concours for four years now and have loved every mile put on her. But she has sprung a small leak. I'm posting two links to photos of the leaking area. These were taken before I cleaned it off. After cleaning it, I ran the bike for a few minutes on its kick stand, then s*** it off and put it up on the center stand and got under it to see. I could see the oil running out of an area above that straight area in the closeup photo. Can anyone give me any ideas here?

So, that looks to be right below the water pump, correct?

Probably coming out of the weep hole in the pump. I believe just replacing the o ring on the end of the water pump shaft that goes into the block will fix that. You can get on SISF site and see what I am taking about.

Its not an o ring....
The shaft seal is a gland seal, they pop out of the recess they are pressed into in the pump...it mostley occurrs after an engine is overfilled with oil, stranglely..

You can replace the seal, or get a new pump from Murph's

All my photos of this are on photobucket, and currently not accessable, but as noted SISF did a nice vid on youtube, showing it, and 'splaining it all...

I watched the video (fantastic video!) and yes that is exactly where my leak is coming from. This would also explain why there is no mixture of oil and coolant. My coolant is very clear and bright green. Now to find a replacement pump and learn how to replace it.
