I noticed the other morning that my radiator only has 2 of the 3 mounts holding it to the bike. The third has some kind of crappy aluminum tack weld or epoxy that has let go. I can't MIG weld it b/c I don't have the equipment or the knowledge, and I don't have a TIG welder. I have never heard of this happening on one of these bikes before......

Anyone else run into this? :dontknow:

I have a feeling it was cause by a hard comedown after lofting the front wheel..... I would say no wheelies no worries ;)

Yes....but in town it was quite bothersome. I was getting tired of dragging floorboards, and backing that behemoth into parking spaces!


if you had a welder, could you actually weld ???
If the radiator was steel, I could have. IF had I a TIG welder; my father who has been welding for 35+ years would have done it for free.

To answer better IF it was MIG or Stick welding yes, but I have zero experience with a TIG or aluminum
