If it's a pinhole and not a crack AND warranty is really not an option (double check this directly with HD warranty department!) then I'd give it a try with plastic metal.
There is not much pressure on the cooleant system and provided you thoroughly prepare and clean the area around the pinhole it should be an ok fix.
To prepare you'd have to grind the area with a soft stone, use fine sand paper for the surface finish.

I don't know about sealing the hole from the outside.I think I'd remove the head for inspection and if it wasn't a big hole or a crack I'd try and heliark it.Used 1130 heads aren't expensive either.

Yah Im not to sure what they are planning to do, but I'm thinking a new set of heads also. Don't want to take any chances.
