I don't see it listed in the parts schematics?

Partzilla shows $120.75 ships in 2-3 days, meaning they really don't have it! I'd try the seal kit off eBay 1st. Or used pumps on there for like $32 but then again you have a used pump.

Me either, I would call Honda, I can't believe they replace a whole pump when the seal goes.

Thanks to both of you (Rappy & Quick) for your reply. I want to clarify my situation. I will be riding in WV for 3 days in 1 month from now. I am just wondering if this need to be addressed before I ride? The service manual does state that a drip is normal from the weep hose. I am now more concerned because I saw a new drop of coolant when the engine had not even been started. So I suppose it will drip even without pressure from the water pump operating? I have never had a water pump failure on a bike or atv so I do not know if these will fail all at once or gradually. What would you do in this situation? I don't mind buying the new pump if necessary.
I do not want to be working on this in WV.

If you can, I'd do just as Rappy did. Buy a new pump, replace it. And then order the eBay seal kit, to rebuild your original, and save as a spare. Or atleast buy the new pump and replace before your trip. If nothing else your mind will be at ease.

You will "probably" be fine.....I am sure it is a Teflon/O ring rotating face and they do tend to dry out if they sit. To be honest, I think I made two weekend trips before I finally replaced mine, it was dripping more often but nothing that can't be monitored. If I was planning on a "away" from camp ride, I would replace it before I went because,....you have no idea how "lucky" I am.
