Blocked radiator

Well a friend if mine brought his gen 2 with 14k by said he had a leak in either a hose or the radiator, so we pulled the panels on it and could see white marks on the radiator like the hose might have been leaking! So I pulled the hoses and found both ends just about blocked up, don't know what would cause this as he never had the bike over heat?? Thx for any advise

I dunno but I've read on another site that Hayabusa's typically have sludgy build up in the coolant system. I forget why and what the name of the site was. I think mine has it too but it doesn't over heat.

Well took it to the radiator shop said it was totally blocked up and they couldn't fix it, they do repair aluminum radiators also just this one builds pressure and just breaks again :-(. Yes he is the original owner but ha a guy that worked on it a few times so we don't know what got put in there ?

If the radiator is blocked like that most likely all of the water passages in the engine are as well. No bueno!
