    The water pump has 2 seals, one for water & one for oil with a vent between the two so you can see which ones leaking by whats dribbling out unusual for both to go are you sure heads are ok

    Well the bike had been standing for a few months with no oil in it as the previous owner had tried to fix it < I just wondered if maybe the seal dried out , I'll flush the cooling system out thoroughly and check . Dont think its head gaskets as it runs well and the plugs look fine , may do a compression test as well
