Pay attention as you dis assemble the unit, take pictures if necessary, and note the direction and location of each seal, and part you remove...
the attached pics should be some guide, as it's not documented anywhere how to disassemble.
After removing the external 'E'clip from the shaft, there is a 'pin' thru the shaft that must be removed during the assembly, and re-pressed back into the shaft.
examine the pics,
Sorry, this is all new, so any photos you take, can be used to help in the future...

So an update. Finally got time to tinker. Fired it up, smoking (white smoke) from both sides. It's a fuel issue. Stuck float(s)?

No. White smoke is from water vapor.
There’s no water in fuel.
Guess again.

Concours C10 / ZG1000 General Chat and Tech / Re: New waterpump oil seal leak
« Last post by TnRider on Yesterday at 06:00:41 pm »
OCD strikes again!

I used regular Red Loctite when putting the oil seal back in the water pump so I was concerned that it would not be adequate.  I did read MOB's statement about some residual oil may be present from the water pump pushing out the old oil. 

But...after 300 miles I still had a small amount of oil reappear on my kick stand. >:(

So...I removed the water pump again.  I had to heat up the seal before prying it free and there was no oil behind the seal this time.  So the regular Red Loctite seemed to be adequate.  It must have just been like MOB stated, some residual oil being pushed out even after 300 miles.   :-[

This time I did find that a 17 mm socket fit properly to expand the seal for a better fit and I used the bearing and seal product this time as well.  It is currently curing under a light. :beerchug:

If it's running just fine, I would be checking my coolant level just to be sure it's not low, like Nosmo said, white smoke is often coolant.

Doing the same! The pistons are all good, they have no scoring or pitting at all: hence me just rebuilding the calipers. I did buy a complete front brake assembly off ebay as it had braided steel hoses.
Just got a full set of seals off ebay, 4 seals and 4 dust seals for £8.95 delivered.
I'll replace the lot, and see how things go from there  ;D

I looked down at the rear wheel, and drats the dreaded final drive is spritzing the rear wheel with fluid. I obviously found this older thread and thanks for listing the part numbers Wayne!  :great: I purchased the third extension of the warranty for my 2011, so I’m covered until July of 2020. This is the very first mechanical issue on this motorcycle in 61,100 miles so no complaints. The mechanic doing the warranty work has done this same repair before, and he owns and loves the C-14, so I think it’s in good hands. I’ll post back with what they find. I encouraged them to do the same full repair that Wayne had done to his 2010.

Fresh oil change. 3.3 qts. Since it's really too hot to ride for the next 3 months or so, might just tear her down and freshen her up. She did sit for 10 years before i bought her. Be a good time to upgrade suspension and brakes too 👍
