Radiator Maintenance??

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 2002 RM125 and I was wondering if there was any way to check the water pump to make sure it is not about to go out. I really dont want to be riding and have my engine completely seize up from overheating. thanks

Take the cover off and try to move the impeller. If it moves, the bearings are bad. Change your oil. If your seals are bad, the oil will be milky. To check if the impeller is turning properly, kick the bike over slowly with the water pump cover off, the impeller should move.
