Back on the road again

Great to find this forum. After raising kids, I'm back in the saddle on my 2016 Versys 650. Improved my commute frame of mind immensely.

Bought bike used with 100 miles, and when I went to change the oil I found green coolant spew all around the water pump seal location....looks like a leaky seal.

From what I know (and I've not had it happen to me mind you) the leaky seal is not uncommon.

My Gen 3 (650) has about 63,xxx kms (39,xxx miles), and hasn't leaked anywhere EXCEPT both forks (fixed under warranty).
