Radiator holed...

Punctured radiator on M3 yesterday. Coolant all over front of bike although managed to limp home to South London. Seem to be looking at around 800 for new one fitted at Tippets in Surbiton. Completely pi**ed off not to have fitted radiator guard. Any views on the best to out on there ? Not going through this again...

Re: Radiator holed...

On what bike? Ebay's usually awash with parts like that. Shouldn't cost more than 50 or 60 sovs. Hour of your own time to fit it (two if you relax with a beer).

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

Re: Radiator holed...

Thanks for thought - bike is a 2008 blade. Did you mean used radiator, by the way ?

Yeah. You won't get a new one that cheap unless you buy a lockpick set and do a dealership

Is it repairable?
Put a screen over it so it doesn't happen again.
