    Jet prime water pump

    Hi, anyone fitted a jetprime water pump? Just tried to fit mine and the outlet flange does not mate up with the engine correctly. The flange can be rotated on the pipe but the angle cannot be changed to mate up!

    I've not fitted one to mine but have seen them fitted to some Race teams BMW S1000RR Superbikes here in Aus.

    Decided to send it back. Not willing to force it to fit at over £400. The standard pump fits on all parts mate up without issue. I will have to go for a new standard pump and hope it lasts.
    Another issue is I could not see a weep hole so were would any leakage go.

    Thanks for posting.  When mine failed I replaced it with an OEM one, but looked hard at the jet prime.  The replacement has lasted over a year and a half so far with no weeping whatsoever.  Fingers crossed.

    I have one of these waiting to go on, so a little worried now. Did the seller say anything about fitting?? Or did you contact Jetprime?

    I've said this on another thread but will add here that when I bought my 16 it was lightly weeping. I drained the fluid and used Nissan car fluid with no silicates and most importantly, use the Steve coolant method from the Concours 14 forum where you use only the minimum required coolant (which doesn't cool anything and only prevents boiling), and use water wetter and distilled water. The water wetter is a soap like substance that is quite slippery, and my theory is that it makes the water pump on the XR happy. I've not had a drop of weeping in many thousands of miles since doing this. It's not scientific, but it has worked for me!

    I think the failure is related to a crack in the inner housing of the water pump, anecdotal again but aside the Big service coolant change I've never touched the coolant on my bike neither had any drips, 40k+ miles 2015 bike
