06 450 XC oil leak

Recommended Posts

So I took my new purchased 06 450 XC out for the first time since I bought it. It was a factory bike that I picked up from the dealer for a sweet price. After the first day of riding, oil slowly leaked from the hole located on the bottom side of the water pump. :applause: I crapped my pants, as I have heard absolutley nothing but the best about KTM. It isn't a rapid leak, but it has me worried. Any ideas for a new KTM man?

I'm thinking there might be a seal that is bad. And I checked the oil to make sure it wasn't overfilled.

Is it coming from the weep hole below the water pump? If it is I would guess it's your seal in the carrier. It's a double type of seal. One side for the coolant and the other for oil so the don't contaminate each other. Pretty common problem with the KTM's. Have done mine a few times. It is a pretty easy fix. Jeb has a how to post on ktmtalk.com. You can order the carrier with the seal already pressed in from cyclezone. Hope this helps.
