Find a good welding shop and they can braize it back to being watertight. My uncle does this, and it works very well.

Have you tried any radiator shops? I have a welder down here who has fixed some incredibly mangled radiators, so it wouldn't hurt to try welding shops, too... good luck. I tried Mylers before I took it to the welder, they made it worse, couldn't even bolt it back on the bike. I won't be using them again... :cry:

That's a bummer. They did a great job for me, and quite a few other guys on this site.

I second Rich... Get in the phonebook & find a local auto radiator repair shop, if they're worth their salt they should have no problem fixing any MC rad (as long as it's not totally trashed) & probably for less than $50.

I bought a radiator for my muscle car from Hawk's Radiator on Cavecreek near Dunlap. They look like a competent place to fix anything that holds water.
