919 Weep Hole Leak in Winter Storage

Hey friends,

My 2007 919 has been spending the winter in the garage. It's an attached garage with modern construction and we've had a mild winter, so it hasn't gotten too cold. However yesterday I noticed a few drips beneath the water pump; sure enough, coming from the weep hole. Could this be related to the cold-ish temperatures, or did my bike just decide to leak after sitting, undisturbed, for a few months? Before I put her up I had no leaks.

Thanks,
Whelan

Highly unlikely it's related. Remember, at minimum it's now 10 years old.

It had 3,400 miles on it at the beginning of 2016, now it has over 13,000. I just think it's curious that it only started showing symptoms after sitting for over a month. If the problem persists, am I going to need to replace the whole water pump, or just the o-ring and gasket? #6 and #17 in the exploded view seen here.
