Looking for a place to buy only the LEFT side of the Rad on a 05 yzf 450.

Did a little dance with a bail of hay in the whoop section tonight and bent it slightly.. IT held all the coolant and seemed to fuction as normal.. but it is kidna pushing out my Rad shroud into my knee when i stick it out... I checked Motosport and Motoworld and Rocky mnt ATV they all say Out of stock.

I'm not going to repair it until later, but i would like a new left side so i can ride next Sat on the track..

Pls any ideas.. Thanks boys

You can get both of the radiators at rockymountainatv.com for $368. If you do a search for oem parts you can find just the left side for $230-250. But i know if you buy from rockymountain atv you can have it in 3 days being in AZ if they have it in stock.

Send it to Mylers they do great work at a fraction of what new cost - I have used them several times

I agree with Mylers. He can do miracles with radiators. Have this one repaired and keep it as a spare while you search for a new one on ebay.

$300 for "one" brand new OEM replacement.
Or $400 for a "set" of brand new fluidyne radiators.

I bent my left OEM radiator. I'm thinking about sending it for repair then selling the set on ebay. Maybe I'll make back half the amount I spent on the fluidyne's. Was a no brainer to replace them. The fluidynes are bigger, have better cooling, and far stronger.
Fluidyne radiators with a set of Unabiker guards :ride: cant go wrong.
