Bent my radiator have a question?

I just took a spill and bent my right radiator the side with the cap. Its pretty damn crooked i straighted it a little and had to take pliers and bend the little spout at bottom up where the hose attaches because it was bent way down. Is it ok to ride it AS LONG AS ITS NOT LEAKING??? I will send it off to get straigtned when I go on vacation in a few months. I wanna ride but dont want to hurt bike.

Bent radiators cause the coolant to curl as it moves through the core. This, of course has no real effect on anything, but I thought I would mess with you a little.

If it's not leaking and the air flow through the core isn't too badly obstructed, it's OK to use.
