Mine was losing coolant in the cold MN winters and I solved the issue by tightening the water pump screws. Filled it up and haven't had another drip in years.

Thank you for your time spent I will keep an eye on coolant level the next weeks I took pictures and those of mileage that the refilling took place and if it keeps getting low I will go again to the dealer as it will be under warranty till February. I have planned vacations once back I will go long ride to test it... I will update if something comes up either from the ride or Honda... once again thank you for your replies..

You're welcome. Happy to lend a hand.

You're one of the lucky ones that gets away with the pump cover leaking. Most leaks are caused by a bent impeller shaft in the water pump. No amount of tightening will stop that leak.
