YFZ leaking anti-freeze out the bottom of the water pump

I have 2006 YFZ450F with only a couple of running hours. Last weekend anti-freeze (Engine Ice) began leaking out of the bottom of the small metal spicket that is on the bottom of the case beside the water pump housing. What would cause this to begin leaking?

Water pump seals and maybe bearing are shot. Easy fix, just get a water pump re-build kit. Be very sure to install outer seal the correct way. It will look backwards to you maybe but remember the wiper goes towards what you are trying to keep out...water. Impeller is probably fine just get the seals and bearing kit. Takes about 20 minutes from start to finish. YOU CAN DO IT! lol! :thumbsup:

Yup, easy water pump rebuild time....very easy and quick too.
