What all parts did you replace while you in there? part #s? In manual it says special tool needed for bearings.. i saw u used a hammer thing? I can't believe with only 3kish miles things like this are failing.
He used a slide hammer to remove the seal. Easier, but not needed. Can be pried out. The special tool is a bearing driver to set the seal in the housing. It's used so that it can be pressed in evenly around the edges. Again, nice to have, but you can use the backside of a socket the size of the seal to get it in evenly. Just tap around the socket to make sure it seats straight.

A bit cheaper at Ronayers.com. Or get with Honda East Toledo.

Also, you don't need special "Kawi" grease or their coolant. You can get high temp grease at the auto parts store and you can run Prestone coolant from there or Water Wetter. Engine Ice will work too.

Ordered all the parts from the kawa dealership ended up being $43.34 total from them with tax and everything.. did not get the grease or coolant from them.. just the seals and o rings.

I know i have to drain the coolant.. do i have to drain the oil too?

If you keep the bike vertical you shouldn't have to drain the oil.

Interesting......so All seals on a Gen 4 are serviceable? On a gen 1 pump once the Seep hole starts to leak the pump is useless might as well buy a new or used pump.

Parts list looks good to me to. I do suggest getting a slide hammer so your not prying on stuff near machined surfaces. Who doesn't want a new tool in the box anyways.

I despise any form of green coolant. The smell, the feel on your hands, and cleaning it up off your garage floor makes me nauseous. Go Engine Ice.....anyone else agree with me?

Just an update to my issues i was having with the leaking... bought the parts below from my local kawasaki dealership o-ring/seals and installed them and it seems to have fixed the issue.. if it comes back i will let you all know! Hopefully alot longer than 3.5k miles.

1x49063-1055
1x92049-0778
1x92055-0208
1x92055-1577
2xEngine Ice 1.89L (only used 1 full bottle and 25% of the second bottle)
2xGallon Distilled Water
1xDistilled White Vinegar
1xBearing Puller Tool
1xKawasaki High Heat Grease
1xHair Dryer

I ended up flushing the whole cooling system as per engine ice faq

Mix the water/vinegar at 50/50
Fill system with the solution
Run engine until warm
Let cool
Drain
Run clear water through to rinse out vinegar
Fill with coolant of choice (engine ice)

My local kawasaki dealership only had one bottle of engine ice and i needed 2... had to go to a local small business shop to find another bottle. noticed they had to different bottles and appears to be same product just maybe updated bottling.. just fyi if anyone encounters the same thing.

i did have to end up buying a tool to take the seal bearing out of the water pump.. i tried to just hammer it out with a flat head screw driver and it went through the bearing into the casing and i did not want to mess up anything so i just went and bought the tool.. ended up being 40.00$ bucks at my local steve's wholesale tools and i did have to heat up the bearing (the one with the blue loctite and spring) with a hair dryer to get it out.. even with the bearing puller.

also be prepared for oil to come out when you take the water pump off completely i was not and it leaked down on the floor but only about a 1/2 cup and i did have the bike vertical on a pit bull stand. so if you have it on its kick stand and don't drain the oil it could get really messy.

Dumb question...
Why does oil leak out at all? Can the bike be leaned over the other way to avoid this?
