Well my radiator has obviously been hit by a stone and I've got 2-3 pin prick holes that are leaking.


What has anyone used to fix this problem?
I was going to just buy some Radweld but I've read a few comments saying that that will clog up a bike radiator as the tones are finer that the ones in a car which it is designed for.

Any suggestions?
I'd rather repair it as a new one would set me back £290

It seems to be aluminium so hopefully I could get it repaired.

Just don't know whether I could go down the DIY route or whether I should just pay someone to do it for me?

I would take it to a rad repair agent, not worth the risk of making things worse. Might cost about £100 from what I have googled.

Well K-Seal didn't work :(


Not sure whether It's better to try and 'weld' it myself or whether I should let the professionals have a go.


I've found a radiator repair shop on Deeside near me so I'll give them a ring tomorrow and see what they charge.
