Red face Engine Coolant - Loss

Hi Guys,

My ride was losing engine coolant for ages, noticed a small weep coming from the (plastic) radiator housing on the RHS looking from the front tried additives but only temp fixes.

Gradually got worse, so for reliability sake I decided to get it fixed:

$590 new radiator
$70 anti freeze/boil
Plus 2 hours labour

Not too much damage there.

It turned out that the thermostat had pretty much disintegrated too, $265 for a replacement now that hurt!
