Water pump leaking

Just wondering how many people have had their water pumps leaking?

Mine was in getting 7 recalls and TSB’s done and they discovered my water pump was leaking and they have another one in the workshop leaking as well.

V2s had similar issues. Interesting that V4 is having the same if true.

Yeah the V4's will end up having more crap fall apart and recalls then the V's just due to the factory making shit more n more cheap as time goes on.

Go to any dealer/service shop you will still see V2's stacked up out the door around the corner waiting to have the broken parts replaced with new crap that will fail again.

I love my V4 but some of the plastics, fasteners and metalwork brackets etc. are just absolutely shocking. I can produce better welds than those found on the stock exhaust. They clearly cut corners on costs in certain areas, without a doubt

When you say 'water pump' are you referring to the internal pump or the thermostat housing, which is predominently where the V2's problems were based?
