Uh....Oh...

Pulled the oil stick out to check the oil before my ride today and looks like bad news...

The oil dropped off the stick and seemed super watery. My waterpump is original and rhe 07 990A has 50k on it.

Looks like the waterpump seals done. I bought CJs kit a few weeks ago thinking id do the job before the trip out to CO in the summer. Seems like itll have to be done a little sooner.

My question is...is there typically damage to the engine that occurs when the waterpump goes? The engine hasn't overheated or gone above 4 bars since I've had it.

I know its a typical issue w these bikes but want to know what to check while I do the new seals and shaft. Could it be a head gasket?

Bummer.
