radiator question

can you take a radiator from a 426 and install it to a yzf400?

I installed the L/H radiator off a 2000 model wr400,which I believe is the same as the 426,on my 99YZ400.It fit no problem,(mounts,hose connections,ect) only that it was aprox 1" wider,and gives you some extra cooling,which is much needed on these bikes.

Call your local Yamaha shop!

Ok, I just called them up and they said that they had no way of knowing what other models it would fit. So I asked them how much new ones would be. $432.37 for the Left and $404.44 for the right :banghead: I just bought a set of MSR radiator guards that wont fit because the left is crunched in and the right is bent so that the holes wont work. :lol: Its not leaking or overheating( yet ) but I dont like having something that could break randomly. If you see andbody riding around on an E-Bay sponserd 98 YZ400F, there is a good chance its me. :worthy:

A dealership would rarely know something like that.

If you search the site you may find more definitive answer, but I believe the 426 radiators do fit.

As to why you want to replace yours, if it is due to damage, yours may be repairable for much less than new ones. Check with Myler's Radiator. Click the Our Work link.
