So I am waiting on delivery of a fuel tank and a radiator from a recent warranty claim. It's already been 3 weeks that I havent ridden the bike, and i cant shake the itch..

I will attach a pic of the radiator leak. I need to at least be able to temporarily seal the leak when I drop the bike off for service(7 mile ride), but wouldnt mind being able to do some light in-town riding on the weekends just to get my fix.

JB Weld, or some epoxy mix with extra hardener with the right temperature rating?? Its a small pinhole leak(although I cant visually see the origin on the hole), is there really any way to safely/temporarily seal the leak?

Here's the pic:

Due to its solid stream shape, that would indicate it is very near the surface.

JB weld, or similar, should be able to do the job nicely.

Use denatured alcohol or a paint-prep solvent to clean the area before apllication in order to help the bond.

Make certain there is NO WATER at the leak repair until it is cured.

If the leak is comming from one of the horizontal water rails, get some pointed mole grips and squeeze the rail so it goes flat.That'll stop it, there are plenty more rails for the water to go through.
