2003 Suzuki RM125. It has been resprung and may have more work than that; the forks are labeled on the caps. I'm looking for a pdf of the service manual, but while I look for it: Does anyone know if anything goes attached to part #9 on this diagram (the one on the left side of the motor, not the one on the top right which clearly shows a vent line)?

It's running rich and spooge comes out of this vent. Aside from trying to set the carb up a little better, I'm wondering if that vent should have a tube on it to take that down to the bottom of the bike.

I have been unable to find the service manual PDF. I did, however, find some oil in the coolant. I'm suspecting the inner water pump seal because the oil looks fine.

Would anyone with a 2003 RM125 manual be willing to email me a scan of the torque spec sheets from the manual?

Found the 2007 which should be similar enough.

Parts finally came in and I stayed up late getting a few things done last night... and perhaps I shouldn't have. I should know better than to pick up wrenches at the end of a day when everything has gone wrong
The Sedona rear tire was a BEAR to install. I felt like I earned a D1 wrestling title after mounting it. More importantly, I got the bearing and seal for the water pump out, got the new ones in, and then when I put coolant into the rads it all went into the crankcase almost instantaneously.
Anybody familiar with these RM125s? What could I have missed? I'm going to have to tear back into it and inspect, but it'd be nice to have a few pointers/ areas of interest to try to expedite the fix.

I found the '07, but the exact one would be great! Even if it's just the water pump pages. I'll pm you my email.

Figured out the coolant leak situation: the seal was the wrong size. Chatting with RMATVMC, I found the bike is an '05, not and '03.

Yup... The right part fits fine. Got'er closed up and posted for sale. Only prob was that I added some Klotz techniplate to my order to make the $7 shipping worth it and they shipped two quarts of motor oil instead...

Gotta love it!
How did you flush the crankcase?

Ran the old oil into it with the drain plug pulled until only oil was coming out. Took a bit of tipping, rocking, and moving, but it finally cleared up enough to close it up and put the new oil in (which is causing the clutch to drag a bit until it heats up, btw. Rotella 15w-40, I believe).
