2006 YZ450F Leaking Radiator

Anyone else have this issue? Went to load my bike today and the left radiator appeared to have a leak down near the bottom (I couldn't tell if it was a fin or a weld/seam).

How does one repair this? I asked a few people about putting those metallic flakes into the radiator like you can do for cars but everyone advised against it because it might damage the engine further.

I've already removed the radiator and plan to consult with several radiator repair shops ASAP.

Any suggestions would be great.

One word:

JB Weld got me out of trouble last year and its still rock solid

Thanks man. Once I located the leak, I was confident that JB Weld would do the trick too and I was right . . . at least so far so good.

The trouble is now that one day when it decides it won't hold anymore, you won't be able to get it repaired correctly unless the shop can get all the JBW off.
