coolant leak
« on: March 20, 2018, 12:53:27 pm »
Hi there, My name is Gozzi
I've searched the threads and read most of the coolant and water pump issues. I may have a unique situation, or maybe not. I over heated about two weeks ago here in MN on a 34 degree morning. In less than 5 minutes coolant spewing. I replaced the thermostat with the 83 Honda Accord( I think) and everything seemed buttoned up. This morning coolant leaking from under the bike especially when warmed up. It appears to be from the water pump area. NOTHING from the weep hole. It appears to be more from just above the water pump. It is hard to see but I took a pic.

I did replace the seal last year and everything looked good with that install แทงบอลเงินสด


Any possible mistakes or misses? Any other possibilities??

Thank you

If you bled the air out near check that you tightened the bleed valve.
After replacing my thermostat and the coolant temperature switch I found a very slow leak at the hose clamp just forward of the water pump.

There is a hose from the water pump to the radiator. It goes from the pump down under the crank case on the left side. My leak was happening at the clamp for this hose.
Sorry for the late reply. I have been distracted.
