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.
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
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
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.
