thanks for your write up. it was easy to follow and your advice of using the oven while the spouse is away is priceless.

my impeller looks shaved down. 18k miles. the shaft and seal appear ok.

Ouch! That doesn't look right. I have never seen that on anybody else'e rebuild.
Was there any debris in the impeller housing?

No need to think, just dive in. Its really pretty straight forward, just set your laptop in front of the bike and have at it.

The first time might take you a little while as you learn your way around the parts, but the second time goes way quicker. Hell, I did one in a campground in the middle of the Atacama without a lot of cursing and tool throwing, and if i can do it, anyone can.

Pay close attention to how that head pipe comes out from under the frame, because there will be a test a little bit later on.

I had never in my life broken into an engine further than the oil filter. I had never even taken a clutch apart. I pulled it off by paying CLOSE attention and followed Pyn's example step for step.

If in doubt, stop, look it up, or ask. We'll get you through it.

I've initiated Water Pump rebuild on my bike. I know that if something is wrong I should notice coolant in the oil, but I actually noticed oil in the coolant.
Has anyone observed oil in coolant and is rebuilding the water pump going to fix it?
