CRF eat water pumps seals on a more or less regular basis. Stock up on them ;)

Thanks Rich.
Just wondering tho if the seal is gone will coolant go in my tranny or will it just go threw this hole. It stoped leaking after warm up so i'll probly replace it when i put the bike away wich will be in about one more riding hour. Will this seal cause harm other then loss of coolent
