    Re: Aluminum Radiator?

    The prices change from week to week so it pays to have an alert running, generally when a new batch appears the price is lower and as stock disappears the price rises.
    The upside down photo is just plain wrong!
    Full of Hot air? Intercool yourself............ you know it makes sense

    In my case it was cos someone else provided me the link to the one which worked for him and it worked for me

    As for price whichever way yo ulook at it its cheaper than OEM or even the JAWS supplied ones (which I suspect are probably just chinese sourced anyways)

    I also encourage you to buy rad guards for oil and rad. They are available, Jaws and e-bay. Just one more level of protection as well as a fender extender.

    so just remember your radiator has the 4 mounting places at the rear for the fan and a vertical cap, not offset

    Re: Aluminum Radiator?

    Just fitted a Chinese copy (sourced in UK - €45 including shipping to ireland). Local Honda dealer looking for €960 for part only

    Agree with previous comment about lots of welding - I had to grind down one corner to get oil cooler brackets to line up with drilled holes again, but it is tight in there.
    Make sure you keep rubber bushes and bolt mounting clips off old rad - these are not included. And I needed new rubber washer/gasket for thermostat.
    Hassle definitely worth €900+ in savings. Even if it turns to dust in 2 yrs.

    Re: Aluminum Radiator?

    My '99 is running really hot lately. Just under the H if I sit in traffic. That makes me worry. I don't need it seize up.
    I recently cleaned and flushed the system. Checked for blockage in hoses, inspected the rad fins, which look good. Took out the thermostat to see if that was the problem... nope.
    Its fine if I'm on the highway or doing 60km/h or more, but soon as I stop the temp rises really quick and stays there. I think there is a blockage in my rad. Seems the coolant is not flowing through the whole rad properly. Any suggestions ?
    I was thinking about taking the rad off, laying it flat on the and pouring CLR, (lye based calicum/lime/rust remover) into it. Let it sit for 30 mins and flush it with tap water.
    If that doesn't work, I think I may need a new one. Chinese aluminum rad sounds good, since Partzilla doesn't sell them anymore.
    I bought an upper cowl from a Chinese seller on ebay. It fit okay will a little adjusting. Its hard to go wrong for $80USD.
    The rad seems like the same thing. Close but not exact. Just like horseshoes and hand grenades.

    Mine's a 99 with 15K miles.
    I am getting the same result, but I consider it normal. Recently did a big service and exact same result.
    Dead stopped, the temp stampedes to right below the H and then the fans come on and it sits there until I start moving, then back to the middle of the gauge.
    From what I've read here and what the bike is actually doing, it seems normal to me.
    The radiator cap knows for sure when the engine is overheating... hasn't said 'hello' yet. I hope that puts you at ease. -BIG DAN

    Re: Aluminum Radiator?

    Did my first proper run today with the new ali rad fitted. 345 miles over to Ireland. Bike definitely runs cooler in traffic. If I turn on the twin Spal fans the temp quickly comes down. Only issue I had with the rad was the overflow spout incorrectly positioned. Well happy with it.

    Re: Aluminum Radiator?

    Ceramic coated Headers make one hell of a difference, can't believe how it's dropped the heat soak, $300 bucks to get done in Oz but a remarkable difference also running aluminum rad, very pleased.

    Re: Aluminum Radiator?

    I recently purchased a ASI branded radiator from Ebay for about $60 and unfortunately must return it to the seller. The radiator was listed as fitting all FI model years, however vs the OEM unit, the filler neck and overflow/flowback are in incorrect positions. It appeared that it would likely rub the inside of the faring over time. That wasn't the worst part, the build quality is sheer crap. The whole unit has a slight distortion to the squareness of it, and the welds are abysmal. the filler neck is over 50% obstructed with weld bead as is one of the flowbacks, which only has about 3mm of opening due to the intrusion of the bead. All the seams are rough, and I found a pinhole in one that would have allowed it to leak. No way this would have passed a pressurized leakdown test. The filler cap is total rubbish, toss it and use a OEM or a fitting Stant.

    I'll get some pictures this evening. I know this incident might be a isolated poor-quality build, however I think I'll try a different branded unit at a higher price point next time.

    Re: Aluminum Radiator?

    I've got one on the carbie ... works a treat ... Only issue is the over flow tube is slightly oversized so had to use a larger diameter piece of hose to go over the original hose and onto the spout. Apart from that can't really fault it.

    Got one for the FI on the shelf for when my existing one expires
