2005 Honda hornet 900 water pump cover

Discussion in 'Maintenance and Servicing' at netrider.net.au started by richard_fry, Jan 2, 2016.

  1. hi peeps,

    Does anyone know where I can get a water pump cover for my hornet 900 - pn 19220MCZ000
    Just removed the drain plug to service and the housing / bolt has got some stripped threads and has been held in with a seam of instant gasket in the threads.
    I've fitted a new bolt with thread lock and torqued it, and it seems ok / watertight for now.

    However, being my daily transport, I want to fix it properly.

    I can find a new housing in the uk online, but having no luck in Australia.

    Anyone have any suggestions?
    Many thanks,
  2. Is there room to tap a new thread a little larger in size and use an appropriate bolt ?

  3. The easiest thing to do would be to order one from a Honda dealership (e.g. Peter Stevens). I don't imagine it would be too expensive. Otherwise, hunt around at wreckers.
  4. Wow...US$72 at bikebandit

    ...for a change its not the Australia tax reaming you a new one.....only honda, with their hand so far down your back pocket they're squeezing your balls
  5. Hi guys, thanks for the suggestions.
    My current method of a different bolt and loctite has proved almost effective, but have unfortunately lost a little coolant...around 150ml over 300kms...not too bad and definitely manageable at the moment.

    Given my home workshop lack of decent equipment, I'm reluctant to drill / tap oversize for fear of situation worse.

    So, have ordered a new one. However managed to find one in the UK from www.davidsilverspares.co.uk for £30 + £8 shipping. Wait to see when it turns up, keeping a careful eye on the drip.

    Thanks again guys,
