a couple weeks ago after riding into work i could hear this bubbling noise. i followed it to the rad coolant resevior and it wasn't overflowing but i noticed the levels were quite low. i topped it up with coolant and decided to keep an eye on it. the other day after my baker run i noticed a water/fluid mark on the exhaust and upon further inspection noticed it was coolant. so i had a look and found a small leak on the water pump/cover, specifically at the outlet that i've indicated.
what i'm wondering is if anyone knows if that tube/outlet screws/bolts into the cover or is it all cast as one piece? right now the leak is small so i don't want to mess with it and possibly break this piece off. i'm hoping i can simply pop the water pump cover off and tighten this thing up from the backside.
anybody know the details with this thing?
