    Unhappy KLR water pump seals? ? ?

    Anyone have any experience with KLR (2009) seals at the water pump? My KLR is currently in the shop waiting (yes WAITING) on someone to diagnose the oily stuff coming out of a weep hole in the bottom of the water pump housing. I have been told on other forums that there are two seals in there that must not have seated right. Bike only has 1200+ miles on it.

    Anyone know how big a deal it is to replace the seals in there if the parts are available?

    Ends up the dealer (after calling Kawasaki) thinks it was a damaged seal from manufacturing or original install. They are overnighting parts to my local dealer and trying to get me back on the road this afternoon...
