    Hey so would welcome some thoughts - i am trying to sort out my bike (2013 STR) and whilst taking it apart i snapped the overflow on the rad - the small 8mm pipe - there is a stub but it looks like it had corroded a little so when i was trying to undo the clip it snapped - and the piece that came off is not in a good shape

    so options?

    I was looking at a replacement rad - MandP have one on ebay for £110ish but i assume it would be silver? so wouldn't look right - so then would need to paint it i guess?
    anyone know if it would be easy for someone to repair the old rad - no point paying £100 for the repair if i might as well get a new rad for the money - not keen on secondhand as they are £130+ and they are not mint.
    welcome thoughts!

    If its only aover flow then it won't be under pressure
    So if you can repair good enough I'd go with repair
    Not sure how it is to advise better
