radiator pin hole

Does anyone have any tips on fixing a pin hole in a radiator or does any one have a rad for a 2002 cb 900 f?

If you are going to repair it properly, try a radiator shop.
This is a good time to change the coolant.
Otherwise buy new/used.
Salvage yard?
JB Weld?

It's on the left side (facing bike) near the bottom. It's in a shop I trust. I think they would have pinched it that was viable.

I've heard of folks using jb weld with success, especially if you can get some to flow and pool on the backside/inside the the pinhole. However I would think a decent radiator shop would know what to do in a heartbeat...
