Just realised I have punched a hole in my radiator so has anyone else had to replace theirs yet and any idea how much?

How did it happen? must be lots of loose gravel around your area or were you travelling to close to others?

No rad guard and Suffolk highways has managed .to cover nearly every road in surface dressing. New radiator is £405 but i have found someone to repair it for £60.

Thanks Gixxer, your post just pushed me over the edge to purchase a radiator guard. Did you get a HOT warning light while riding leaving you stranded or was it a case of seeing coolant on the garage floor after a ride?

Noticed I had a wet boot after I had put the bike away last night and thought it was odd so had a sniff to make sure it wasn't oil and forgot about it. then when I went and looked at the bike later I could see the coolant puddle underneath. Luckily it hadn't lost it all so no harm done apart from not having the bike for the weekend!

I also have just ordered a rad guard! ;)
