Ktm 125 2012 head gasket or water pump seal?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I have recently bought a 125 2012 model I checked the water after it had been running for a few minutes and the water was white and frothy at the top and when it's been left to settle a while the coolant isn't a nice green like my other bikes have had in its more of a dark green (dirty) colour, also I took the oil cap off while it was running to see what it was like and it looks very watery... is this symptoms of head gasket failure or water pump seal ? Thanks

Hard to tell without taking it apart.  I believe there is a rebuild kit?  Since the bike is new to you it might be worth rebuilding the whole assembly.  Shafts can get grooved, bearing can go bad in conjunction with a bad seal.  Pull the WP cover and see what you find and post it.  

 

Congrats on the bike, love the 125's!
