Kawasaki KX250F 2006 model coolent leak

Just baught a KX250F and rode it for the first time today, I noticed a coolant leak from a litle hole behind the water pump, on the bottom. The coolant keeps on dripping out there, and sometimes stop all together. I opened the water pump/ oil filter cover to try and locate where the leak is coming from, but the litle hole is situated behind the water pump itself on the bottom. I cant see how the coolant is supposed to be there as it doesnt look like if the hole is connected to the coolant pump itself. Any ideas what might be wrong?

The hole is not a crack or something, it looks like its supposed to be there. Even if the bike is not running, it keeps on dripping out the hole. Please help...

There are two seals on the impeller pump. Replace the seals an the leak is stopped. Put in a new cover gasket as well.

I have a 2006 KX250F that idles ruff, or surges up-down-up-down. It runs good on top. ???

This is likely to be an air leak at the carb or manifold. The leak would thin the fuel/air mixture and account for the problem. Tighten every screw and bolt in the carb / manifold area. With a little luck this may fix the problem.

2006 KX250F blowing oil out breather should I be concerned?

ther is a chance that being over filled will blow out of the crank breather so drain off to the correct level if then the bike still does this then you have to high crank presure meaning the bore and piston/rings are badly worn
thanks jay

I changed the oil and filter in my 2007 kawasaki

you probably have a leak! It is possible, (depending on what type of oil you put in)
that the oil dissolved the gasket, or removed sludge from an existing hole, causing it to open. but if you dont have any oil spots..well....thats a whole nother story.
terribly sorry!!
i hope this helps in some way!
