Water Pump Test / Coolant Pump Test

Anyone know a way to test your water pump to see if it is working correctly? I just swapped out my thermostat and wanted to ensure the water pump is working correctly before I button up the job.

I’m not sure of any way to check it without running it. I’d double check the coolant level, and do the coolant bleed procedure. I believe you need to run the bike for a few minutes until it gets to a certain temp, let the bike cool then check the coolant level again. While it’s running ensure there are no leaks.

Once you do that and top things off, you’ll want to run the bike and ensure it sits at a consistent temp. It might be possible to connect a computer with diagnostics to monitor the thermostat itself but I’m not sure on that.
