1) Send it to Mylers and see what they can do with a soup can size hole.
2) Order a replacement from Mylers but because I'm the way I am and don't want 2 different radiators....buy the left and right for
3) Buy one of the made in china sets I see on ebay for $70-$100 (or 120.00 if I want the silicone hoses with it)
I'm leaning towards the ebay ones. Ive read mostly good about them, but read a few horror stories as well. Does anyone know if one set it better than another ( GPI Racing, Winner Racing, ZPC Sports...etc)
Felt pretty good to eat dirt and swim in a mud pit again!!!
Any help here would be greatly appreciated!!!

Just over $100 for used OEM.
Thats what I would do along with giving the cooling system a good flush.

If you don't mind an extra 6-8oz. of weight, I'd do the china ones. The hoses all connected fine. The plastic shroud needed to be pushed in a little, but you couldn't tell by looking at it.

Rad guards are a good investment. take the money you saved on the ebay rads and buy guards too.

This is an absolute no brainer. Buy the chinese radiators off of ebay. They are bigger and stronger than the stock ones. You will notice a big increase in the cooling and they will be much sturdier.
Here are the picks of when I compared the $100 chinese radiators to the stock ones off of an 05 wr450. Mine were dented and I made a good choice.

Use a jumper hose and run with one radiator. Stay off single track.

I see the logic in the Chinese replacement, except the Chinese part
I have used Mylers a number of times with great success and service

I bought a set of the Chinese radiators off ebay for $85. They were slightly narrower than stock but much thicker and have worked fine. The radiator gaurds needed a slight mod to make them fit.
