Water pump seals, possible infection.
I'm half way through replacing the water pump seals.
I removed most of the seal paraphernalia apart from the seal embedded into the clutch cover housing that was rusted into place..
To do this I had to remove the clutch cover housing ( knocking off the gear change U spring in the process).
The replacement seals are coming from eBay via China, however due to the Corona Virus, my order, although they arrived in Spain a week ago, delivery will be apparently delayed.
I am no expert in viral diseases but mechanical seals should not pose any health threat.
As an aside I was looking at the oil distribution mods whilst I had the clutch cover off but decided against it. I usually ride at a steady 4000 RPM with the occasional increase for an overtake. The mods seem to be for riding at much higher revs.
BTW original Kawasaki oil filter costs ££$$, However I bought one locally for €5 Euros. Champion COF023.
