Water where it shouldnt be!

I think I know the answer just wondering ofbthere is any moree knowledge out there. Recently bought myself a 200 gsxr srad 600 picked it up last week. Firat thing I did was a change of oil and filter as its been sat for a while. saw nothing unsual, a small bit of whitish sludge on oil cap but that was all. Was a few days after that I took for a short ride when it started over heating. I pulled up let bike cool down and checked water......which was full of oil. Draibed that and refilled but continued to mix. Got home dropped the oil and it was the same consistency that was in the rad. Drained all fluids, checked headgasket which was fine but replaced and no oil or water in the head. Changed both seal in water pump which looked knackered, so I though maybe a result. Filled with oil to flush all gunk out, did firat drain then went to flush rad on second go. At this time I had the sump plug out as I was filling with water and it went in one end and straight out the plug. The engine is still in the bike and im trying to work out with limited time to either strip the engine to try and find a big hole somewhere and be disapointed or if therea another solution or just throw another engine in it. Preferably fix but wanting your opinions please.

well if you have replaced the head gasket then either you havent got it to seal correctly could be a few different reason did you get the head checked for being true to make sure it wasnt warped or like you think it could have a cracked block ................stu might have more idea being mr suzuki

Not sure with this model but what about the bottom gasket on the cylinder?


Haynes (or 'G@@gle') should give you a drawing of the oilways and coolant water channels - Anywhere there is a seal / gasket where these are both present could be the cause.

Think ive found the problem. The core plugs in the head had popped out! Probably down to the overheat which I can only assume was a faulty thermostat as ran without and there were no more problems. I pressed the plugs back in and they were nice and snug. Now the water stays where it should! Although now since putting it all back in the order it came off and with new seals in the water pump theres is now a torrent of water pouring from behind the water pump. Is this the mechanical seal that is broken at the watrr seem to be voming from a small hole on the backof the pump but im not sure its meant to be getting anywhere near that. Also noticed pump was off a 750, would that make a difference? And thanks for your help too lads
