Dripping Radiator

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I have found a 2001 CB500S for sale on the net, seller says that occasionally water can be seen dripping off the radiator ... I presume that's a cracked radiator; how difficult a job is that to do? How pricey? I would like to buy it because it's cheap (£800), economical to run and will make a great first bike. Plus I want to learn to fix the thing myself - presumably being a 2001 model it won't have any fancy electronic gizmos on it.

if you buy a bike with a fault like this you take a chance the seller hasn't mentioned something more serious!


you should be able to get an old radiator for £50 and it's easy enough to fit.


i would suggest though that you hold onto your cash if there is any doubt about the bike. make sure you see it before you bid for it if it's an online auction. i bought my ZX9r on ebay for £850 and it's fine. non issues. be patient and shop around. you'll find something decent that shouldn't need fixing straight away :D
