I have the rear wheel leak-less again! The parts from Inmate gefr are at the PO, I will pick up tomorrow. All of the parts may be on the way from KTMTwins, except for one tool that I can get by without. They say it was shipped Thursday, but UPS still does not show it as being picked up! I am in Mississippi and my house sale closes Wednesday. I don't know if the parts will arrive before I vacate the house or not. I really wanted to change my water pump shaft and seal in my garage with full access to all of my tools. That may not be possible now! I plan on leaving for south Mexico in the next 9 or 10 days. I will only be gone about five weeks. I must decide whether to do the shaft and seal before I go or wait till I get back. I would expect to ride no more than 6,000 miles on this ride, which would put the moto at 34,000 miles. What do y'all think, change it before I leave or take it with me and hope to make it back to Mississippi before it is needed? Even if it is needed then!
