Looking for a radiator for my 97' Bird. Are any of these any good? Or would I be better off trying to get my old one rebuilt if possible?

I have an aftermarket Rad on my 2001 Fi and its fine but the overflow spigot doesn't line up.
So yes they are fine but make sure all the pipe work aligns.

Forgot to say, this was put on by the previous owner and I have had the bike nearly five years now.

I've got aftermarket rads on both my injection birds. They were a good fit. I gave them a coat of primer the black paint, just to hold the corrosion back a bit.
Was going to post a link to Ebay but its MAAAASSSSIIVE

Hi Verg,

I bought a Fleabay chinese rad for my '97 carb bird back in Aug 2018 and it's working very well. A few pointers to watch out for (see my posts #4-6 in the link below):

Fitting a new Chinese one on current build. It is getting a log corrosion protection paint coat first, and I have high confidence in it. It look s a good bit of kit.

I lucked out and found one off another 97 in good shape. So far, no new problems.
