I thought I'd change the oil on this lovely day off and much to my surprise I noticed my water pump seal leaking (looks just like the very common issue on here).
The bike has just under 4k miles on it and I don't recall seeing the coolant splatter on the lower fairing the last time I pulled it off to change the oil 8 months ago.
So, this looks like the common problem reported on here. Unfortunately, my warranty expired 2 weeks ago
Why the heck couldn't I have found the time to do this 2 weeks ago!
So...my question is, how easy of a fix is this if I were get the parts? How much are the parts? Would anyone venture a guess to how much it would be to have the dealer do it?
The coolant level does seem to be a little lower than it was when I bought it new last year, but it's still well within the lines. Am I ok just leaving it like this? Or does this need to be fixed soon?
Also, I've got the SW Motech engine guards installed, will those need to be removed to fix it?
BTW, thanks to any of you who have served or currently serve our country.
