Sounds like FUN! I crunched my left radiator, ended up buying a new one thru my buddy at Yamaha , paid like $195 (cost is around $176). Could have done the Mylers thing but, decided to hold off (can always fix the old one and keep for spare). One thing I found out AFTER I bought the new one, I could have gone thru IMS and got their super duty radiator SET (2) for only $399. Hope you get her all back together ok ...

If it's not entirely smashed, don't forget about Mylers.....they can repair it for a lot cheaper than buying new......
