I was loading up my bike the other day in my truck and I had the first tie down on . Then I thought it was leaning far enough over to set there while I got around to the other side . I heard one of my buddies yell over to tell me to check out the track and watch a guy on 400EX jumping a huge double . I turned around and the bike came down into the side of the box Smashing the Left side radiator . Anybody have a radiator for an 01 YZ426 Left side Please let me know. :D :D :D :D :)

rvanliere, a friend of mine here in Sioux Falls parted out a 2000 a while back, I'll call him tonight and see if he has a left side yet or if it got sold.

How bad is the radiator smashed? There's a place in SLC,UT that can fix any smashed radiator for $35.00 to $45.00 dollars. They could have it done and shipped within 3 days. I know its less money to have fixed then to by a new one. Let me know and i could get a number for ya. :) :D

I had my bike (CR500)hanging off a tie down on the ground next to the truck because I was too tired to throw it up on the stand, and the wind blew it over toward the truck and bent a brand new radiator just like that. I feel for ya buddy, Id give that place in Ut. a try. Radiators are expensive has heck man.

Hay man the number to call is 1-(801)280-8040. the name is MYLERS. They can fix it, my friend smashed his during a race and he took it to them. I thought he was crazy to think they could fix it, but they did and it was $40.00. Good luck man. :)

just a word to the wise, investing in some works connection radiator braces, or devol racing radiator guards is a good idea. ive dropped my bike 2 times off my truck and the rad's r just fine. they owe their lives to my WC rad braces.
