Something to talk about

Well the forums been dead latley so lets have a talk about this one.

2003 TL1000r Got it 500 bucks and it runs.........

Heres the question, The oil is milky not suoer bad but theres is defintly some moisture in there, While idling theres is a very slow coolant leak right above the clutch housing coming from the little hole I'm pointing at in the pic below. The suzuki guy said it may be the mechanical seal behind the water pump??

Any thought on that one?

Plus someone want to explian to me what kinda fancy clutch gizmo I got going on there? The insides appear to be red in color you can see through the glass when its not all funky.

Also does anyone know what different sub frames bolt up to the main frame? I gotta get rid of the TL tail! Hopefully a GSXR sub will bolt right up...

Hopefully I'm still cool in here, I kept (and plan on keeping) the 9er and I'm making a naked out of the TL. Plus nobody posts in Forums, I guess everyone likes to be naked!

if the seal goes it lets oil in the water and water in the oil.... damn near as bad as a leaking head gasket... DO NOT RIDE IT till you fix that... it will fuck it up...

new water pump shouldnt be terribly expensive.....

So do I need to replace the water pump or just the seal, Or is the seal part of the pump?

Definitly not gonna ride it that way, its half way torn down now anyway those pics were from earlier today. plus the left fork is busted where the axle goes through.

Got the 9er if i wanna go out.... it's like a reliable friend!

Funny thing I was reading over on TLplanet and one of the 1st threads is " does anyones TL run right now" made me chuckle.
