Super Enduro Water in Oil.

Last time I changed the oil, it was some milky oil in the inspection glas and some on the dipstick.
It have used some water too.

The bike is a 2006 but I bought it brand new in 2010. I have rode it only 4500miles now.

should I do a water pump rebuilt?

any other sugestions where to look for water leak, if there are any.

Take it for a long run, condensation and moisture in oil is normal. Check coolant level from rad, if it’s not using any all is good. Otherwise flush the system to remove any casting sand and change WP seal and shaft.

See Info page for help.

Amazed you got a new 06 in 10....

+2 normal condenstion, IMO don't worry about the water pump. I would just ride your bike more often and longer and keep an eye on your coolant level.

Don't want to be Debbie Downer, but my water pump seal in my 07 950SE pooped out at about 4500 miles. If there's any flaw in the seal, it'll leak. I didn't want to believe it was the seal. In fact, my oil never looked milky. I saw the condensation in the sight glass, but that's it. Finally, the water plugged the paper filter and that was that. It was a flatbed ride home. I begrudgingly purchased the full kit from CJ with the hardened shaft. Installed and have since put 5000 flawless miles. When I did pull the seal, sure enough there was a bead of coolant behind the seal. Must have been a microscopic nick on the seal surface. It leaked.

Condensation does not = loosing coolant. Check the oil filter for waves, ride until it's hot to see if the condensation will flash off keep a close eye on coolant, check the oil filter again, any top end noise or oil pressure light flickering?

Okay! Thanks, I will follow your advise.

I must get those ice tires on and take the bike for a ride, its minus 22 degrees outside, but no problem. The funniest seasong is the winter I can drive faster then...
