How tough are radiators?

I've just gone through the horrible experience of seeing my pride and joy ('02 WR426) topple over in the back of a trailer, all through the rear view mirror, after a tie down buckle let go, which i've never seen before.

The bike landed on the edge of the trailer, resting on the right radiator shroud.

I can't see any damage, but was wondering, can a hard knock like that cause any internal damage? Or is it a case of, as long as it's not leaking it's all good?

Or is it a case of, as long as it's not leaking it's all good?

That is one part of it. But the other part is that the flow of water throught the radiator is not affected. Ie as long as you didn't crush the side in to far.

No and yes
