Just discovered a water pump leak; ie, evidence of antifreeze on the right side, apparently coming out of the "overflow" hole on the rear of the water pump. After searching the threads on the other site, it is either a bad gasket/seal/pump or an overfilled system. As they did some radiator repair, they may have messed with the level. But they didn't charge me for any antifreeze.
Any opinions before I call the dealer??

Dan the water pump itself will have what is called a weep hole. The weep hole allows coolant to drain rather then stay around the outer brg which could result in a brg failure and the shaft coming out of the pump. I have heard of both the seal and the pumps leaking so far. It is probably the result of just sitting for a while without running.

Went on the dinner ride with the local HOGgers, and no signs of a leak. So once again, looks like you had it pegged, Max. Sure was a beautiful nite for a ride.
BTW, The vote on the backward visor is leaning towards leaving like it is.
