Weird coolant leak

I haven't used my CR250 in a long while but 2 weeks ago I put it my enclosed trailer to move it to an other location. It ended up staying in the trailer for 2 weeks but when I came by today I noticed a big puddle on the floor under the bike.

After some looking around, it seems like all my coolant leaked out from a factory hole located under the water pump. However, the bike was never started, just pushed in the trailer. Can anyone help me figure out why it suddenly leaked and how to fix it?

Thank you

Here's a picture of the hole.

thats your water pump weap hole.

your water pump seal is worn out. how to fix it? get a water pump seal along with new water pump gaskets. and replace seal/gaskets.

how it happend? beats me, they uselly only leak when the bike is running.

corrosion...from just sitting. most likely will need to buff the pump shaft with emery before you install the new seal.

What's the easiest way to get to the seal? Same problem with a 125 here.

threw your water pump.

if you dont know how to do it. get a shop manual(i recomend the honda one strongly) or get someone to show you.

Thanks, I will look into it. Hopefully I won't have to change the shaft.

Still, crazy that it all leaked out in the trailer after months of sitting in the shed. :smirk:

the shaft isnt that pricy.

??? How much do you get yours for? Mine ran around $85 . Maybe it's cheaper now or do you have a better price ? link if you do please..

Be careful not to put the seal in the wrong way too. Here's another thread on this...very common deal.. this has come up before.... lots of threads on this. Gotta get a manual too.

I guess you are adjusted. I still trip over side cover gaskets going for $17-$20. What a ripoff. For me, for what you get, the $120 is too much.

That shaft/gear is something like 52 bucks on TT's OEM parts page.
