Antifreeze leaking out of the weep hole. Getting worse each time I ride it. It is now dripping on the ground when stopped. Pulled the plastic to make sure the hose clamps were all tight. Ran the bike with the plastic off and verified antifreeze coming out of the weep hole.

Has the bike been sitting, not in use, for a period of time?

In the last 30 days how many miles were put on?

I'm asking for a specific reason.
The ST uses a Mechanical Seal on the water pump impeller.
This type seal uses two disks that rub each other smoothing the sealing surface ensuring a seal.
This type seal is susceptible to leakage if the bike sits.
Most frequently this leakage occurs when temperatures drop.

This seal is known to self heal in the majority of cases.
Mileage is the key, the seal must be put back on motion for the two disks to rub together and smooth their sealing surface.

A tank of gas run through several rides, or about 300 miles in several rides, in most cases "repairs" the sealing surface and the leakage will stop.

Check out this thread

If you have any further questions on the water pump either post on the above thread or start a new one as we are off topic here and it would be far better to keep water pump questions within a water pump thread.
Posting to the above thread would be preferred by most.
It keeps related topics in related threads and makes searches much easier.

Since I am in a pissy mood...

For those of you who wish to avoid this dealer based on the fact that one employee made a mistake...

And you have completely ignored the fact that the dealer is trying to "Make it right"...

I hope to Hell you get fired from YOUR job next time you make a mistake no matter how small or insignificant. Fired and banned from working anywhere within 200 miles of where you live.

But of course no one at YOUR job ever F'ed up. Never.

After being in the motorcycle business for the better part of three decades you learn a few things.

It's not IF you damage a customers bike it's WHEN you damage a customers bike.
How you handle it is what keeps you in the business for thirty years.

Thank you Paul I could not have said it better myself.

Talked with Rockey Mayer and he said he had no problem recovering my seat. Rick Mayer who did my seat is out of business and in litigation. Will be talking with the Honda service manager today. Will update.
Have a great day fellow riders.
