I do not recommend this - too much crap attaching all over the inside of the motor

Call Mylers and send it there to get fixed right

is this a permanent fix? or for a race? I have used good ole JB Weld on on a mates street bike rad with really good results..just pack it on there.If it's in one area,just make sure it's dry,then apply.I wouldn't use those sealers either.As already stated,if you have the time,get it repaired correctly.

I did this to get through a race and it was in a pinch and I knew that two weeks later I was going to rebuild my engine, I am now working on the engine and now I am going to have to clean out all the water passages because there is just way too much crap floating around. However I did not ever flush the system after the hole sealed up and I should have. As far as sealing the hole it worked great, but I will never do it again.

If you are in LV, just take it to this place off of Spring Mtn and just West of Wynn road. There is a radiator shop behind some Chinese Wok restaurant, on the North side of the street, that fixes radiators cheap and quick!! PM me and I will give you better directions, but the guy who owns the place is named Darryl. He just fixed both of mine, from an '01 426, that were bent, twisted, with quite a few holes, for $70.00!!! Plus, he did in in 1-1/2 days!!! :censored: Nice guy. Long winded, but a nice guy!! :ride:

Don't put that junk in your bike unless you don't like it. It will clog your engine as well as your radiator.
