Radiator?

So.... I finally had an spare hour or two this afternoon... and finally able to bend and lay down without getting sore since goin down..........

Looks like a pinhole in the radiator right at the mounting tab..... FARG! was hoping to get out with just plastic damage but such is life.......

QUESTION-

IS THERE ANYWHERE ONLINE THAT IS LESS EXPENSIVE FOR MOTORCYCLE RADIATORS???

or use this QuickSteel Epoxy Putty. I was on an SMR where a riders radiator got punctured by road debri, he used this stuff & it work very well. Met up with him a few SMRs later & asked him if he got the radiator welded, he said didnt need to the Epoxy quiksteel worked very well.

I've used stuff like that for a couple car repairs and it works great. Really is liquid metal. Should solve all your problems for 5 bucks and 5 minutes!

JB weld style setup might do it for ya.

The rad shop is your best bet.

But DO NOT run any internal rad leak stop in the bike!!! DO NOT!!!!!!!!
