Wasn't a puncture that I could tell on initial inspection. The sides were compressed and probably broke the welds/solders if I were to guess. It was a quick look to find out that I need to replace it...

Not sure if this is the best place to ask, but thought I'd try:

I'm looking to pick up fairly large selection of quality bolts of various types and sizes, along with nuts, washers, etc. I live in Moscow and the selection of bolts here is limited to what I can find in the box-type hardware stores, which are not very high quality and which are sold in fairly large packs.

Anybody have any ideas?

Rocky Mountain ATV sell some pretty good workshop and trailside bolt kits.

On the trail, ground black pepper can stop a pinhole size leak. I've used the Alumaseal and Copperseal in cars and had pretty good luck with small leaks. Quicksteel and JB Weld might get you home depending on what happened to the radiator. None of the above is a permanent fix.

BIG +1 They have fixed rads of min that looked to be totally TU. They also do their own line of stronger after-market rads that are very nice.

The little zippfizz containers are perfect for carrying a small amount of that stop-leak stuff.

Personally speaking, when I ding a rad, no amount of magic powder is going to stop the leak, more like I need some of those wooden bungs you see on ships to try and patch the leak

Have used that stuff with some success to temporarily stop-up a ruptured seam that was dribbling (not a gusher - that's what we carry JBweld for).
