I searched high and low for someone to repair my 2006 CBR radiator and could not. Even tried to send it to a shop in AZ but they would not do it. Just check ebay for a used one it's the best an cheapest way.

You can probably get a used one off the r1-forum for cheap.

There is a guy in manassas with a radiator shop who can fix you up if it's able to be fixed.

What's wrong with it? I had a rock hit mine at 130+ mph and it wasn't till I stopped that I realized that coolant was pouring everywhere. A little JB Weld and she held great for 20k miles til she got stolen.

Depending on where it's leaking, if you can solder aluminum you can fix it.

+2 for jb weld. used it on a ktm 640 that vibrates like crazy (which is how the fan rubbed into the radiator) and have had no problem 15k later, even under abusive offroad conditions. sealed an engine gasket leak with it too. heh. good stuff!

I'll add a +1 for this. Jay referred me to these guys when I needed the inside of a tank lined. They do excellent work.
