Guys, im at a loss and i really dont know what to do. I just did a full replacement of my water and oil seals and gasket on my oil pump and as soon as I added water the weep hole started leaking again. Idk wtf to do now and it's pissing me tf off to no end not being able to ride. I dry it off and watch it come straight out the weep hole, everything had been torqued down correctly
That mechanical seal is prone to leak unless it is completely cleaned......... ( it is a ceramic to ceramic seal........ you can take 1000 grit and a flat stone to both surfaces)
no finger prints
no lube of any kind
not even lint..........
So are you sure you had it spotlessly clean?!?!
woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
