GO NOW. and get a freaking radiator guard.

so yea go get one. my ride today with dbuck and BrutusTx and Godsuki plus a few others, i apologize for not knowing your names, was going awesome as usual. That is until I noticed my radiator all over my bike...and i dont mean a trickle. i mean a stream, a stream that was shooting upwards no less. my only logical conclusion was a rock thrown up at just the right angle and velocity by the lead guy. and i say logical conclusion because the leak was in a way strange place for it to be a rock. how ironic it is that ive been looking for a radiator guard...:eh: so just as a forewarning/precaution/free advice just go spend some money to avoid having to end an awesome ride far too early, limp your 180+ mph bike home at 65 for 100+ miles, pull in your driveway an clean off all the baked on radiator fluid, pull the radiator off and search ebay for a new freaking radiator...AND guard.:BangHead: youve been warned.

The Noctem knows.

you can probably get the radiator welded by a radiator shop. i've busted my radiator in 2 different spots, and both have been welded and hold up well.

I welded mine and still have the material to do quite a few more. Takes a little time but it's not hard to do. Send me a PM.
