coolant leak (under pressue )

Hi guys,

got another problem :(

Found out that there is a coolant leak, only when the bike is running. It is coming out of LHS, above the gear shift, looks to me like its the coolant pump. Anybody had that issue? :/ Just wonder if its easy to take it out, and fix it myself

thank you

I moved this thread because it is Performance and Tech stuff.

Now back on topic...I just found out my coolant pump was leaking with 20psi of pressure.

It's the weep HOLE(under neath the coolant pump) and is a sign that it's going bad. I bought a used 1 from a member for$40 shipped another member had one for $60 shipped. I used some special expensive tape to clog that and my temps went down dramatically......I need to replace my pump but I found my problem.

Your choice but I believe this is a common thing with the 10Rs
