well My 919 fell on its side other day (soft ground and lousy kick stand) didnt think it hurt it, but week later I noticed coolent leaking , aparantly the bottom part of radiator where hose h ooks is not egg shapped not round like itss suppose to be, are these new aluminum ones on ebay ok?
Its an assumption, but I would put money on it. Supermotoparts is based out of hongkong if you drill down into the description. ASI is turning up a mixture of results, but 1 user on a yz forum had 2 ASI rads develop a leak shortly after purchase.
OEM rads are about $400.
if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided
my stock one didnt seem that high quality to begin with...
side note - ive always thought wrapping (or maybe high temp coating?) the first 5-6inches of each header pipe on the 919 would really help with cooling seeing as the exhaust ports exit right in front of the radiator. Any thoughts on this?
