Hey Ya'll, Thanks sooo much for all the help on the timing belt questions. I am torn down and will complete it this weekend. My question is, while I have it down I thought I would change the water pump. Gets HOT in Arizona. No seeping yet.The manual says you have to take the front engine cover off, Yuckkkk. Its a 1986 Aspencade. Is that correct? And who sells the fuel filters for the fuel injected model at a decent price. Thanks again...Kim

Yes front cover must come off.
If it isnt leaking and your not having problems leave it alone.
200,000k and I am still using my original waterpump.

take the "tranmission cover " off.... yes it is right reallt not hard to do.... but, be careful as you put the water pump bck in, very easy to pinch the O-ring on the punp, and you will re-do the whole job.... also, replace the crush washers on the bolts fpr the pump

pumps leak from 5 places

seal on the coolant side.... O-ring on the coolant side

seal on the oil side, O-rinf on the oil side AND crush washers on the oil side

No drip leave well enough alone.

I had a drip from the vent hole so thought I'd have to replace the pump. Took the front cover & pump out and found that it was just the big O ring on the pump that had a flat spot on the bottom.

Pump was perfect no sign of leaking from vent hole in pump and no play sideways or back & forth. So I used a water pump gasket kit and put everything back together.

If you think about how often you have to replace a water pump in a car/truck, there's no reason the ones in these bikes won't last at least as long.

Yes, you have to remove the front engine cover but if it not leaking or overheating, dont fix it.
