radiator stop leak
Posted April 18, 2008 - 12:32 PM
I just bought a 2003 wr450 and (due to being ripped off a treat , new thread coming soon!!!) my left radiator leaks a little,I'm thinking of using this http://www.pttp.co.u...r-stop-leak.php
Is it okay to use or am i better dragging it out and saving for a new rad ??
I'm just scared it may wreck the water pump or something.
All I want is a Yamaha reliable bike,
Any advice is great ,

Here is the TT store catalog page:
If you don't want to pay for new rads, you can have them fixed at Mylers for a fraction of the cost. They have fixed hundred's for rads of people here on TT, have a 1 day turnaround time, and are supposedly very reasonably priced. They can supposedly straighten rads, fix leaks, anything!
Here is a TT review of them:
And their site:
Cost should be WELL under $100.

I CANNOT think of a single car manufacturer that doesnt include stop leak in the factory fill of antifreeze. I run it in my motorcycle because it just might save my ass in the woods one day.
Do not get any other type of stop leak then cellulose fiber, or it will cause you headaches
You probly should get it fixed by a rad shop, but for a temp repair and preventative maintenance stop leak is great

I dont think I'm going to use that stuff , I think it'll be a false economy, I'm just doing a complete rebuild of the engine and to mess it up now would be so bad.
I'll have a look around a bit more for a repair, just i called one repairer and they said the core cant be fixed but i see it can by the photos from mylers.
I can find loads of second hand right radiators with the cap but no left ones , is there a reason for this , are wr's left heavy when you fall off lol
Thanks again for the replies

Will those 2006 rads fit on my 2003 ??
If so that would sort the problem for sure.
