coolant leaking...

looks like a small amount of coolant is looking out the weep hole from the underside of the water pump housing. I think that indicates the mechanical seal is bad. Does this sound correct? Can this be replaced by just removing the water pump housing or does one have to take the whole clutch cover off?
I just replaced the clutch and dont want to take it all apart again
Thanks......

Not sure about the replacement procedure, but I do know on goldwings, if you have coolant coming from the weep hole, the pump is going bad.

Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.
