hello guys , first sorry for my english but i will try my best to describe the problem that i faced with my zx10r 2006

i have sluggy coolant (little but of oil mixed with the coolant in the radiator)

and a small drips of oil/water under the water pump from the small hole not the cover

i understand that the seals of the water pump are bad and i will buy a new water pump , but is it normal to found oil in the radiater due to a bad water pump ? knowing that i checked the engine oil its clean and not contaminated with the coolant ,
thank you for your time :)

Your English is fine! Understood everything.

Yes, it's possible. The water pump is right in front of the oil pump. They are driven off the same shaft. If the shaft or seals in the water pump have gone bad, it's possible that some oil can get through into the water pump.
