Today after riding for a little bit I noticed coolant was leaking from the bottom of the motor and making a small puddle in the bed of my truck. I took off the skids and noticed it was leaking out of a vent line coming off the motor. Here are a couple of pics...



And here is where the vent line is connected to the motor...


Anyone have this happen before? No water in oil and no oil in water... the bike ran great today too.... It was probably close to 90 degrees today so it was a little hot outside...

That's a weep line to let you know the mechanical seal is bad. Easy fix.

Sweet, thanks for the replies. I found a video of a guy doing this repair on Youtube and it was pretty in depth with all the parts you need. Ordering parts soon to fix this. Thanks again!

Got all the parts ordered today. Ended up being about $89 for everything. I ended up buying all the parts listed in the video I found (7 parts instead of just the 2 seals) for peace of mind and if I am already tearing it down, why not do a couple more things to make it better.
