    Detailed Instructions for the Water Pump Fix

    HI all iv got a 2000 drz400 s and had the same problem ......the rtv is a temparary fix if using old parts or dosent work at all beacause the shaft gets pitted and corroded, it builds up and destroys the seals i found this out after i replaced head gaskets thinking it was that(put in a 434 big bore at same time) i found out that this is a common problem in all makes, 4stroke 2000 + i did rtv fix shown on main post but didnt work cause of bad corrousion damaged shaft and seals rtv fix might work if bike is farly new and little ware but mines a 2000 so its old,, but finally gave out use burst of air to get washer out of impeller (great idea ty) the corrosion on the shaft was worse, pic is after i tried scotchbright and rtv fix and still leaked..... my leaking was from the the back side of water seal ( in pic 2) as u can see its all chipped and brittle ********buy the whole pump assembly 120$ to be on the safe side************* comes with everything u need off bikebandit.com or wherever (avoid used crap on ebay) cause i noticed there were cracks on the 2 bolt holes on the plate (below pic hard to see cracks) plate comes with new assembly i believe oil seal behind plate behind that sleave inspect that too (above pic) on new pump assembly add the rtv fix to the spot shown on main post, make sure to assemble pump, then disassemble, then wipe any rtv that may have been squeezed out to ensure a even seal, reassemble and let dry for 24 hrs exactly use high heat rtv i used black be sure to clean any whiteish oil/water gunk while clutch cover is off, so u can tell better if seals are not leaking, a can of brake cleaner works, - replace clutch cover gasket with new- then flush oil a few times to ensure all water is out and leak is gone. add whitegrease or a touch of oil to o-ring waterpump gasket to stop coolant leak goodluck all and ride safe
