i would service the water pump now its off for what it costs the shiny bit on the shaft i think is just a guide where it comes down the leg, the shaft will twist a bit under load as do all shafts and will touch the guide i have had a look at my Suzuki service manual and no bearing that i can see on mine but its not far up to shine a torch and have a look if it were a bearing it would have to be tight on the shaft to work, also have a look at at gear oil while off doesn't sound like the mechanic has done a through service hope you haven't done any serious damage. some one will be along with more knowledge that me to advise.

good luck

Going to check compression first myself before approaching dealer, if there's damage I'll be expecting help!

That's true as he said he checked that as well, there is a sleeve or bushing up there from what I could see yesterday evening

Hoping Davie can sort me out with parts ;-)

Cheers

Looking at the stat & its housing I wonder what the rest of the waterways are like? I've never used a flushing agent of any sort but is there anything out there that might help?

The drive-shaft looks a tad rusty. Considering the engine was serviced, I'm struggling to see why the mechanic didn't clean off the surface rust and lightly lube it. That's pretty poor. And the thermostat, that's beyond a joke. Send him the thermostat, I'd be sending him a horse's head!

Brown stuff that I've flushed out looks very similar to the crust you get of an old style element, maybe descaler would be the job?

i think if it were me i would stop and go back to where you bought it, its been a poorly maintained engine and the service as the guys have said a disgrace you didn't run it for long before it let you down not acceptable at all, my fear would be its a can of worms and the more you do the less they will help and if its got to be stripped down sheared bolts can be expensive to sort. pee's me off this kind of thing you pay honest money you work hard for just to be ripped off [ i agree horses head] best of luck.
