Water leak I have a yamaha yz 125 2002 and have a leak of water from the bottom of my bike. Could it be the head gasket and is it expensive to repair? Also front brake hardly works even though there is lots of brake fluid. Any ideas? Many thanks Mark

The small hole under the water pump is the weep hole and is designed to start dripping water when your pump has a problem. You should remove the pump and find out what the problem is before it quits and leaves you stranded. Could be simply the seal, or the shaft may have become pitted.

With the brakes, I assume you have looked at the brake pads and they are good so bleeding is definitely the first option. If that does not fix it remove the calipers and check that the pistons move when you squeeze the lever and that you can easily push them back into the caliper (after you disconnect the brake line). Then rebuild them if required and reinstall.

Have you checked you hoses for the antifreeze leak?
you need to fill your radiator and clean up any antifreeze and start the bike and warm it up and look for where you antifreeze is coming from.
these bike didnt have ha problem with head gaskets but it is a possibility.
this model had o-rings on the head not a gasket

on your brakes first try to bleed the system. and then go from there.

Mark,
front brake probably has air in it and are you sure the fluid is water from below your bike? I am in the middle of repairing a 2004 YZ125 and being my first time dis-assembling a 2 stroke motor I would have to say it has been very easy. I took out the gears and cleaned the housing and checked thickness with my mics and lubbed and re-installed into the housing. The clutch works better than it ever did and it took me about 5hrs total with tearing body, radiators, ect. off bike.

My 2001 yz250 is leaking alot og gear oil when idoling out of a hose coming out the bottom of the bike then wen i shut it off it starts leaking coolent out of another line coming out the bottom of the bike...


The leaking coolant is a sure fire sign that you likely have a blown head gasket or your water pump is not pumping water any longer and the bike is overheating.

The leaking oil could be coming from your power valve vent - is it pitch black oil and is it coming from the front of the engine?

What color is the oil? Are you sure its gear oil? Is the gear oil milky and foamy? Is the gear oil level high or low? Is there water in the oil?

Sorry for all the questions - there are several things that could be happening here.

Hi everyone I got problem with yamaha yz426f Well head gasket was leaking. the bike was staring good before repair. How I had head gasket replaced and head machined I assembled bike by the manual...


get a leak down test it answers all questions gasket leaks or valve leaks piston leak down its the only way to tell answers with out tearing it down again you can do your self or your local shop can do it
My guess would be leaky intake valve giving blow by under compression and I have seen plenty come back from machinest still leaking when you assemble them back together
Leak down test is the answer then you will know where to start

Leaking both oil and a mixture of oil and water


well when you have water and oil both leaking it most of the time means a head gasket or in your case a jug gasket
