Yeah, I have a thought. I wonder what you would do if there wasn't the internet.
Would you just stand in the corner of the room rocking back and forth with your head in your hands mumbling "oh my god, oh my god, oh my god..."?
I don't think so, so why the hell are you asking us?
Would you rather someone else make the decision for you?
Here you go: replace your radiator, but replace it with a brand new one.
(I usually charge by the hour, but that was pretty easy, so just donate 5$ to the next homeless person you see.)
Somewhere in Vancouver the underside of a bridge is missing it's Ducky.
I've been running a bent radiator for two years and 30,000 miles with no issues. If you can get a good deal on one in better shape, it would probably be worth replacing your current to keep for a spare.
Also, as far as fairing fitment is concerned, the connection point on mine was misaligned enough so that after about a year (with significant gravel road riding) the attacment "ear" on tha fairing broke. If the fairing is stressed at all, you have another reason to ignore the fine example of ignorance betraying arrogance quoted above by that pointlessly vitriolic Vancourverian.
