I'm not sure about your 07 GSXR but understand MOST bikes oil and water pumps work off the same shaft drive. You need to pull the assembly apart. You most likely have broke somin in there.

Check the Online Service manual thread and get the break down on those parts.

Hey there, bad luck about the water pump. I think all manufacturers don't carry any seal kits of any sort for your waterpump and you'll be forced to by it as an ass. Just my and from experience!

Here's what my Honda shop manual states: "If the mechanical seal is damaged, the water pump must be replaced as an assembly." Your Gixxer is probably the same.

Dumb, either way your going to have to pay for it-plus people at repair shops usually can determine what happened by what kind of damage there is/isn't. You'll just make yourself look even more dumb. Warrenty covers manufacter defects-not even the clutch is covered under warrenty. Besides, it's not the bikes fault just cause you can't ride-that's why newbies should start with a used bike first.

Don't lie to them and they might work with you on the repair...

I think many times people forget that the Stealers treat us, the same way we treat them...

You did it...you pay for it...

dude, you don't even know me.. why would you say this is my first bike? because im new to the forum? so it's safe for me to assume.. your a newbie aswell?

And fyi, I called the dealer and explained what happen he said the newer gsxr have a slight problem with that.. he has seen a few with the same issue.

the guy told me to take it in tomorrow.. and he will fix it.

For Sure.... that sounds like a keeper Shop.... it's amazing what a low speed drop will do to your bike as compaired to a high speed drop and slide.

If this is a common issue- maybe it was leaking before and you just didn't notice??? which could have contributed to the accident. ??? I assume this is why they are replacing everything damaged.
