    Thanks for your help RJ! I’m slowly but surely getting these ZLs back going. It took me a while to get dedicated to it but it’s on now!

    Thanks for providing the support for our big ZLs

    :hello: No problem glad to help. :notworthy:. Run your bike before doing anything. If the water pump just leaks oil. Then just replace the oil seal. Also check the propeller for play. Put the pump in a vice. Rotate the propeller with your fingers to check for tight spots. Then with both hands one on each side of the shaft & try to wiggle it side to side then up & down to check for play. This checks for bad bearing. Most of the time the bearing closest to the propeller wears out. I have all the OEM water pump part #s listed in this thread for a complete overhaul. I have 12 of each OEM part in stock. I also have the size of the oil seal listed.

    :hello: John I got your water pump done. I'll send it out in the mail tomorrow. The bearings, oil seal and mechanical ceramic seal was really bad.

    I had sent my old and busted water pump to RJ. He did super work. Pictures are the water pump before, still on the bike. After the rebuild and all the parts RJ sends with the NEW pump. Getting it all back together now. Will update after riding awhile, doing a few burnouts and a smoky, front wheel raising, holeshot.
