Radiator Fix?

Should I repair it with JBweld's "WaterWeld" or do I need to get it welded by a radiator shop?

I've HEARD that "WaterWeld" is basically a permanent fix... any thoughts?

There is just one hole, looks like it was hit by a 1/4" rock...

Jb does work great, but ultimate peace of mind is to have shop do a spot weld on it.

Most shops charge $25.00 - $50.00 to repair it, not much for piece of mind.

You can make a screen for it while it's off.

Any suggestions for screen material? Something that flows but still protects...

And can the screen be flush up against the radiator or does there need to be space between the two for cushion when rocks hit it?

And thanks y'all!

did you see this all ready?

Talked to a guy that has them on two of his bikes, he said that they touch or are very close 1/16 of an inch.

I agree with you though that you need a gap to get 100% protection.

They would be very easy to make, I am going to get something here from work and make my own, with a gap.

Hardware stores also sell mesh in small pieces. Check tractor supply, they have some.

Just use JB. I beat the out of my bike on the weekends, as you may have seen, and mine is holding up great.

I just found a spool of inner-shield aluminum wire for my Lincoln!!! Yee-haw!

I just hope I can turn the heat down enough not to burn through...
