Water pump

Post by dbduely » Thu Jun 07, 2012 4:34 pm

Can anyone tell me the about how long the water pump last on the goldwing. I just bought a 85ltd with a 109,456 miles on it. I'm getting ready to order the timing belts for it and thing this would be the time if it is getting about time, but do'nt want to spend the money if they last a fair amount of time more than that. I have all the maintenance records on the bike, and it is the original pump. Thanks a bunch great site.

Generally speaking,I will replace the pump if there is ANY impeller side play or if the weep hole has any oil or antifreeze dripping.
Mine has 114k miles and the front bearing wAs just a bit wobbly, no leaks yet tho.
