OK.
Just got my motor back again and now after a 3 hr ride the gear oil is completely white and pasty. Is the the water pump seal . and if so do i need to tear the motor down to replace it? Bike ran great but..

are you losing water from your cooling system? if not then I might say it was water already in the case and then you just added oil to it, any chance that you might have sucked water in the breather tube?

Just the side cover has to come off to do the waterpump seal. Check the brg hasn't too much slop in it either, all pretty cheap stuff. Just take your time & don't force the cover back on. Check out that welcome to Kawasaki page http://www.buykawasaki.com
to see what you need.

:p
rough trails are good, ever been up the staircase trail out in richland?
Hey when you get your motor issues resolved get ahold of me somehow and we'll find an area to get together at. I usually ride richland every weekend, have a nice parking area out by the buggy camp, my friend's grandpa owns that cabin out along the road out there too.
