This is what it looks like when you water pump lets go on your new 15R

4 weeks ETA on getting the bike back.

I knew something was up but didn't think it was that bad because the leak stopped on its own. So rode it as normal to the dealership for its first service but I was wrong.

It apparently used a lot of oil during the first 1000kms as well, don't know if it was because of the water pump was gone or not, so every one with your 15Rs keep an eye on that.

Thanks from Alpha Male

Red face Me too

This happened to my 1299s at 400 Mile mark. DUCATI really needs to do something about the sealant material or design a small ball mill groove on the surface of two mating pieces. This ball mill groove will be filled with the sealant and act like an Oring. Problem solved.... Your welcome Ducati.... Lol 😁 😉

Mine had oil seaming out of the weep hole.

That's interesting guys,

I have had a small coolant leak from the first rides with my 1299S, some drops of coolant came out of the weep hole every ride. Not much, but noticeable.

Two weeks ago, my dealer replaced the water pump on warranty.

First 100 km, no more water coming out that little hole. But unfortunately, during the last two rides, again some drops of coolant did drop out of the weep hole, see images.

For me it sounds nearly impossible that the new water pump also has a coolant leakage on the shaft seal (from where it is supposed by design to flow down to the weep hole). Are there other reasons why coolant is leaking out of that weep hole?

Would be interesting to see if other 1299 owners also have such a minor coolant leak from the weep hole (you can see it best if the small black plastic flap is taken away from the left fearing).

4 weeks for a water pump? That's seriously poor. And the spring sunshine today made it impossible not to want to go for a fang.

Mine has been doing the same thing since new but never enough to puddle on garage floor. I pointed it out to the dealer at the 600 service. Not sure if it was some sort of excuse but they said supposedly some 1199's did the same thing and "Ducati" wasn't sure of an exact fix. I've just been keeping an eye on it as well as the level in coolant reservoir which hasn't seem to move at all from its "max" level.

As far as I can tell that little hole isn't part of a water pump. It's just a hole in the casting of the crankcase half possibly on purpose but who knows. The so called "squirter unit" as they call it is above that and to the left. I'm guessing that's the water pump but no evidence of a shaft in the microfiche so I'm not 100% it is or how it works.

So far in this thread we have 1 that had water pump replaced and seemed to fix issue, 1 replaced and still has issue, and 1 waiting for repair. Please keep this thread updated and results or additional findings.

As soon as the riding season is over I'll try to get in there and do some more investigating. I did notice from the microfiche that above that hole a little ways is the coolant hose that goes into the rear cylinder head and it seemed to have a band style hose clamp instead of a worm gear clamp like the majority on the bike. If that didn't have a good tight seal I could see the coolant making its way out that little hole. Who knows but definitely keep us posted.

Oil from over filled crank case -- this has been going on now for maybe 500 to 1000 miles - we drained off oil to the low mark, as it was leaving essentially a puddle under the bike - but even at the low mark it dribbles out -- occurs when oil escapes through the crank case breather into the air box, then while on the side stand, it finds the drain....dribbles out of the bottom of the fairing - the shop will look deeper on next visit

I think they would have to make that model before they could recall it...
