Read lots of post so here is my question. I just started to have a coolant leak from the weep hole, when it was noticed it was dripping fast, lost about 8 oz in a few minutes, thank god I had a skid plate that the fluid was catching on making it visible when we stopped to talk or we may not have noticed it before it was too late. We were out 15 miles in the desert but had enough water to make it back by stopping ever 5 minutes and adding 3-4 oz. As we got closer to the trucks I noticed the leak slowed down but never stopped. I have all the WP rebuild parts except the shaft. Bike is 06 but very low hours so after reading Melk-Mans comment I am wondering if I should just do the WP seal and see how it goes before going into the oil seal and bearing. And when I do go in that far I think now I would also get the shaft. I kind of think going all the way in is not really needed at this point if there is not any slop in the shaft or visible shaft damage. What do you guys think, WP seal only and see or get a shaft and go all in. If the WP seal only does not fix it I could order a new one along with the shaft. Also how often do the balancer shaft/bearings fail? Is that something to even consider on a low 30 hour bike?
