Oil in water pump spindle area

Hi guys,
Can someone please tell me if oil in this area is normal? When I wipe it away it seeps back in again to the little hole qute quickly (within a few seconds).
Thanks.

Yes, hence the seals in the waterpump to keep the water OUT of the oil mate.
Now if you looked at tip #8 in this section - http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=107834

Cool. Thanks Donsy. Much appreciated.

Now all i need to do is repair the water pump drain bolt...i managed to somehow strip the threads in the drain hole and now the bolt won't tighten in it. Any ideas?

Thanks Noel. Is there such small HeliCoil for such small holes? Won't be able to get them locally. Sods law that it's the first good weather weekend?
Any other ideas how to plug it quickly, temporarily?

Heli-coils are available down to 4mm I think. 6mm for sure.
You could always find an alternate bolt and sealing washer a size larger and tap the hole to match.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

It's an M8x1.25 if i'm not mistaken.
Will order some HeliCoils just to have but meantime will look at tapping to slightly bigger and see if i can get a seal to enjoy the bike this weekend.
Thanks esq'z me.
Wishing you all a good weekend.

Hmmm...the water pump drain on my bikes are M6 x1.0. Not much room to go a lot larger. Good luck.

I had a look on star twin trading and on the water pump drawing it is item 14 (for my F4 750).

And yes it doesn't look like there's much room for going much bigger.

Sods law this would happen right before the best weekend of the year so far!!

Will need to spend sometime on it tonight and see what i can do.

Really?

HeliCoils go down to M2x0.4

Take a longer Allen head bolt put it through from the inside, put a washer and nut on

the outside and tighten, it'll seal

Make sure the head is lower than the tapered area where the impeller turns

It will fit on the HO Factory pump I checked
