Water in Oil!

I just bought a used That has been sitting for a loooong time. 2 years maybe. The bike got dropped a while back and he had the intention of rebuilding and never did. I started it, rode it, all seemed ok, in my exitement I never looked at the oil (really dumb I know) The sight glass looked foggy, had some white sediment. I drained the oil and had a nice milk shake pour into the pan. I've read in other threads here that this can simply be condensation. I was also told that there is a water pump seal behind the impeller that comonly fails. There is also allways head gasket The motor had no clanks

Answers :

I would go for the water pump seal first, it is an easy fix. Pull the left case cover and there it is. You will of course have to take the water pump cover off and all the plumbing that goes with it. Be sure that when you put the new water pump seal in not to put any lubricant like oil or grease on it. This is a ceramic seal and oil or grease on it will ruin it. There is also a spring in there that keeps pressure on the seal so replace that as well. You will see what is there when you get it apart. Replace any corroded/rusted parts. Take a good look at the impeller and make sure it is 100% while you are in there. Sometimes these will break loose from the shaft. If you have any questions about it replace it. If after that you still have water in the oil it would be a head or base gasket I am thinking requiring an adult to intervene, a qualified Ducati mechanic.
