RADIATOR HELP-Quick Fix

I posted a thread 2 days ago about trying to find a radiator, but on the thread it said that there is something i can put on the hole where the fluid is leaking out.....they told me to post a thread to see what it is, the hole is really small, and i am working on gettin a new radiator, just drives me up the wall not being able to ride. What is something i can put on it for a temporary solution?

Water Weld and there is a place by Motorcycles Unlimited that they may recommend that can permanently patch it for you.

PM MaxGs, he has used them before with good results. He can also give you directions on how to construct a radiator screen.

I think it was water weld. Its a putty that comes in a stick. The maker may be JB.

Water Weld will work well. Any autoparts store will have it. It's an epoxy clay you'll kneed together and then place it over the leak. We use it for leaks on the street all the time.

Blocked the hole and water came out the back? Sounds more like an application issue. I took a rock on a ride far out of town. It saved my . I never even messed with it after that. Its still on the bike to this day. Many who make that ride carry it. Im glad someone had it on them that day and the store had distilled water.

Also, there is a radiator shop close to Texas Yamaha in Pasadena that can fix it very well. They helped me out a while back. Took 20 minutes. Hot welded (it is an epoxy that is torched on) and even hydro tested it. Lasted a long time, but I ended up replacing it.

Do not put anything into your radiator to stop the leak. You are just asking to clog up your head and overheat.

I was still a little shaken up while it was repaired for me. I had just done several big hiiigh speed curves. After the last one we were waiting for others to catch up. I went for the brakes and didnt have any. The coolant was spraying all over the rotors and leaving a nice trail on road for the rear. If I had gone into one more curve I may not be here today. They were speed curves.It was a Fayetteville trip. So you understand why I dont know what the tube was?
