there is a slight leak in the housing below the water pump . it is coming out of the machined hole on the under side . would new o rings or gaskets around the water pump solve this problem ? thank you

Getting to the water pump is a big enough job Ed, and I would vote for fitting a new water pump.

Pop for the OEM pump. If you try to cheap out on an aftermarket unit (cough cough SaberCycle cough) you'll just be doing it again.:gunhead:

I agree with the other posters, fit a new Honda pump and save yourself a lot of grief.

How much is 'slight'? Mine has leaked anywhere from a few drops after a long ride to a small puddle after sitting for a few days. And sometimes it goes for weeks and weeks with nothing. In the three years that I've had my bike I've probably added less than half a pint.

And if you're topping up be sure to use silicate free antifreeze.

Like gido said thay might leak a small amount and a larger amount BUT any is a sign the seal is going bad and WILL deteroiate in the most inopertune time,replace it before you HAVE to.
