Hey Ted, You hear about the Arnold boy having a head on with car, while on his bike? Apparently he almost lost his leg.

Also, I saw this in the news... RIP Edward Perry

Last line in the story: "police say Perry has a medical condition."

He certainly does. Verb tense matters people. Come on.

So, for now, I filled it back up and tried the ground pepper trick (about half a spoonful) just for giggles. I figured worst case scenario I could just flush it out. Let it idle, and once it warmed up the leaking stopped. I let it run for another 10 minutes and there is no signs of the leak anymore.

I'm still going to get it fixed correctly, but I think it's OK for putting around for now.
Many years ago we used a radiator sealer for a trailside fix in a leaking
radiator. It worked great that day, but later sealed up the whole
cooling system and the motor had a meltdown.
Possibly using it as a 1 day emergency fix and then immediately
flushing it out may be ok, but otherwise I'd stay away from using
sealers in motorcycle coolant systems. Just my experience,

Tony
