1994 RM 125 Water in oil

This 94 RM 125 had a serious problem of water getting into the oil.  I pulled the clutch cover and the transmission fluid in the gear box looked like pepto-bismol.  I assumed the water pump seal was to blame, and I was correct.  Once the seal was removed, it was evident it was leaking because the 2 bearings behind the seal were rusted and seized.  These bearings should never be in contact with water unless the seal is leaking.

1986 Suzuki RM 250 Right Hand Crank seal

A customer brought this bike in for repair because it is running terribly rich and fouling plugs.  I immediately assumed it was a carburetor issue, and I did find some clogged jets and orifices in the carb that did contribute to the rich condition, but soon found out it was something more than just the carb.  The amount of black goo coming out of this bike was more than I have ever seen on a 2 stroke.  So bad in fact that the rear...
