Oil leak from waterpump vent hole

Post by oswoody »



I seem to have developed a bit of oil leaking out of the vent hole under the water pump on my 1981 GL1100. Can anyone give me some advice on the fix. I have only run it two or three times this spring. Just noticed the leak. Any help appreciated Thank you.

One of the oil seals, Orings, in the waterpump is failing.

Thanks. I suppose removing the waterpump is the only way to check and may as well put in the new one. I appreciate the help.
