When was the last time you replaced the seals in your water pump? The seals on my 07 450 went out in about 15 hrs. I over heated it on a hill climb. Just order new seals and a gasket. Check out the bearings and shaft when you have it apart if they are bad replace them. Seals are cheap. And use Engine Ice.

Might just be because you let it sit to long.

If its only a drip or so I would ride it some more until it is a noticeable amount coming throught the hole. Then replace the pump seal.
