Yes, it sounds EXACTLY like a stuck float. You may be able to fix it yourself depending on how accessable the offending carburetor is. Quite often you can free up a stuck float by setting up a bit of vibration. Give this a try > tap the side of the carb repeatedly using the plasitc end of a screwdriver. You are not looking to hammer the thing to death, just create minor shocks. The shocks / vibration will often free up a stuck float. Please rate this solution and let me know if all went well.

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

1. I have an 02 and just normal riding temp for me is 170-188. 2. Yes that is possible you can get a toggle switch from any auto part store and rewire the fan so you can turn it on when you want. Thats what I did and I turn mine on around 175 just to be safe. 3.Yes you would be able to see it through the oil window.

from past expierence with these little gems blown head gaskets dont usualy show with water in the oil rather the other way around thats right if the head gasket is blown your more likely to notice a discolouration in the coolant also the spark plug will foul wich is why it will not idle .regarding the over heating I'm assumeing you have bought this machine second hand If that is the case do you know how long it has been since it had a full service from the way you describe the oil Im guessing its been a while so before you go pulling any thing apart drop the oil replace the oil filter flush the cooling system at this point while the system is dry I would remove strip & clean the coolant pump sory did I mention that the coolant drain plug is located at the bottom of the pump I have encounterd torn seals in these pumps before checking these things may save you the headache of pulling the head of.

hi,you are quite correct,it will be the seal behind the impellor,kawasaki and suzuki are famous for it,simply undo the nut holding the impeller on,remove the impeller,you will have to pry the seal out,when replacing the seal use a "loctite type"sealing compound to reseat the seal,hope thjis helps...cheers
