O ring

Check the oring seal if it's broke when you put the pump out from the crankcase.

No gen2 pumps in UK and none in Holland so has to come direct from Japan (20+ days)!

From Cradley UK....

Water pump failure

Check water pump from gen 1, 2 and 3, almost same part number 2005 part / 49044-0003, 2006 part/ 49044-0005, 2008 part/ 49044-0008,


Now on ebay when you look at water pump pics from 2004 through 2010 it's looking the same, good idea is to check with a salvage yard if the water pump from 2004 through 2010 are interchangeable, From 2011 I know they change the pump configuration.

So maybe you can save a lot of money that way.

04-5= 189
06-7= 196
08-9= 197

I'd only buy new anyway (do it once do it right ect) so I may as well get specific year pump.

Ordered it a week ago anyway but cheers fella!

Finally got the new pump from Japan on Thursday and fitted today,all went well and no leaks..
O-ring fully intact and looks like a new pump to be honest so don't really no why it was leaking coolant(must be an inner mechanical seal!).

Now I'm thinking of stripping it down to check shaft for any defects and if ok surely I must be able to source a new aftermarket seal that will go in??? Be nice to fix it for a spare! What you guys you think??

If you can find replacement seals, I'd certainly be interested. My old water pump was mechanically fine as far as I could tell. Seals would be a cheap and easy way to get back on the road.

Have a wheelie nice day!

Winter sucks.

I will try but I'm surprised nobody has ever done this for the gen1-2 as buying a new water pump everytime is exspensive!
Anyway I will see what we can do....
Cheers

I just replaced the water pump as well with an Ebay one. I haven't had a chance to try it out but when I pulled mine it still looked good. It would be a great thing if someone could find just replacement seals. I did my research and looked around, couldn't find much.

Glad I found this post. Ran into the same issue when I took my bike in for an oil change. The shop told me you're leaking coolant (from the minor amount of coolant buildup) and also my bike gets super hot fast and flashes "HI" after 15-20 min of riding around town.
Is it safe to assume that it's the seal on the water pump that went bad?
Since I also did my research and would have to get a WHOLE new pump for a seal that went bad. I don't have a leak of coolant on the floor when the bike is parked. This issue has been going on for a few months, so I held off on the oil change (planning on getting all done at the same time if I have to install a new WP)..
Also what coolant would you guys recommend?
It's a 2006 ZX-10R
And in Southern Cali.

Thanks!
