Question about Yamaha YZF-R6 Motorcycles
Most Yamaha water pumps have a weep hole that drains off any leakage that migrates into the space between the oil seal on the shaft bearing, and the coolant seal at the impellor.
This prevents the fluids contaminating each other.
Sometimes a seal will leak after sitting dormant (winter storage) for months...and they will seal again after a few rides.
Don't be tempted to plug off the weep hole or crankcase contamination can occur.
Not real familiar with your model...but the bigger touring bike (Venture) the seal can be replaced along with case gaskets for around $60 in parts.
