So I'm loving my new to me 07 990. Hopefully going to get my brakes
sorted out this weekend, but other than that the bike is running great!
But I am preparing myself for the inevitability that the water pump is going to go bad (I'm pretty certain it hasn't been changed by any previous owners). The only problem is, I don't know how to tell it's going bad. I've read something about milky oil? I assume you see that during an oil change, but at that point have you already done any damage? Is there any other way to tell?
***P.S. I did see some water dripping out of one of the hoses the other day, but it smelled/felt/tasted like water. Not sure where the hose was running from, I assume maybe the radiator or something? Just some moisture condensing/getting pushed out?
