My brother in law dropped his bike while doing a hill climb the other day and broke his right side radiator. Needless to say it ruined the day for him. Will those aluminum radiator gaurds not only protect against flying rocks, but also help add a little extra crash stability? I suspect not. Are there any tricks to keeping these things from getting smashed? (Besides not crashing :^)
Unabiker guards... search Unabiker in this forum, you will likely get about 50 threads on the subject. They offer superior protection to side impacts.
If his radiator needs repaired, try Myler's or Mylar's (sp?) in AZ, they will send it back good as new.

Mylers Radiator Repair does a super job and are real quick. It takes longer to ship them there for me. You send it in good packaging with your phone number and return shipping info on a piece of paper in the box. The day the get it they call you, tell you the damage, take your CC#, charge you the repair cost plus shipping. Honest and real drama free. If they cannot fix it they tell you then. No BS. KJR

If you can't find a used radiator and Mylers cannot fix the one you have, make sure you check out Fluidyne Rads... you can get a set for just a little more than you would pay for just one OEM radiator and they are by far the best radiators you can get... they look like they belong in a NASCAR

Actually I wasn't doing a hill climb I was coming down the hill in a rut and the front tire was trying to "jump rut" and the bike didn't agree so yeah I tumbled and busted a fitting completely off the bottom of the radiator.
Hey you got a picture of the damage?
