Wr450 Radiator Damaged - What to do?
Posted November 29, 2006 - 03:21 AM
I might be able to straighten out the bracket, but I don;t want to touch the cores which are also bent. Has anyone else had to straighten out the outside of a WR450 radiator? If so, how resistant is it to cracking?
I found this company called Mylers Aluminum Radiator Repair that claims they can fix it for between $35 to $100. Does anyone have any experience with them?
Oh yeah, I know radiator guards would have prevented this and that will be my next purchase after this is repaired. Any advice is appreciated!!!

My point is, you can either live with the damage or try to bend it back yourself. If you crack something you can always send it to Mylers, or just send it to them in the first place. My friend used them and was happy, and I have never heard one bad thing about them.

On the other hand, if they sound like a bunch of idiots when you speak to them, then you're probably better off shipping the rad(s) to a Mylers or another reputable shop, where you know what kind of results you can expect, through other people's feedback.
