Water pump leak. Can it wait till spring?
« on: October 29, 2014, 01:28:55 pm »
Hi C10 gurus.  I have a 86 900 Ninja that my son and I refurbished a year or so ago.  Does not get ridden much but the last time I went to take it out, I noticed it has developed an oil leak (drips under the bike).  I suspect I need to pull the water pump and install new seal and o-rings.  Is there a risk of damaging the pump (or anything else) if I wait until spring to do the work?

Thanks for any recommendations you may have.
