You can do a free download of a service manual and a parts fitch manual at the site below. At the bottom of the Yamaha section you will find 6 R6 manuals. Yours is in there.
What you will be doing is replacing gaskets/seals. If you find the water pump casing is cracked or corroded away, check the cost of a new casing at the dealership then Google " motorcycle salvage yamaha " and you can probably get a replacement there for less than at a dealership.
Please rate this solution. Thanks Red!

Sounds like the float in your carb has stuck, usually it is the needle ans seat valve gets sticky in the pilot valve hole within the carburetor, Take the bottom bowl off the carb and work the valve a couple of times, check and see if the float moves freely up and down. Would be a good idea to install a carb kit if you haven't used the bike in a while. Very inexpensive .
Hope this helps.
