Water leak coming out from Pump ?

Recommended Posts

Hi Thumpers,

 

So, I have this water drip coming out from just beneath the water pump on my 04 KTM 450 EXC. 

 

Leak can be seen from pic attached. There's a hole were the water is coming from, but i don't know why it's there and why the water drips out.It happens as soon as i start. It also drips faster when the bike has heated up. Weather here is hot so heat is a problem. Just changed the water today , water came out all black. Is that normal ? I got the bike second hand and hadn't checked the water untill now.

 

Any help? 

Im not so experrienced in maintenenace but i d love to learn. MY expereince is an oil change on the bike .. went ok ;)

It's a weep hole , it's to show you the seal on the impeller is worn and maybe the shaft of the impellor as well
