I am replacing the water pump of my GSX-R.
I drained the engine oil and the coolant, disconnected the hoses, undid the two 8 mm bolts. But the water pump does not come out. I can feel the pump moving a little bit, when I pull on it, but it doesn’t come out. Part of problem is that is difficult to get a good grab on the pump. Also, I don’t want to damage the pump, because I plan on overhauling it and keep it as a spare.
