Bent Radiator! Straighten or not to Straighten?

13 posts in this topic

Hey Guys,

I bent my left radiator last week during a fall in the Rockies. I think the mounts are bent most, but the inner most fins are torn all the way down the radiator. It does not leak, but has put a major kink in the shroud. Should I try to straighten it or just call it an emergency spare? Thanks for the input.

At $300.00 a piece I would fix that sucker. Check with your local radiator repair shop, if they cant fix it send it to Mylers. I have had mine repaired twice now, its cheap and looks and works like new.

I bent mine in a crash last year and figured I would have it repaired when and if it started leaking. 14 months later and all is still good. I would just wait and save the $.

Ok Guys, I know this is sad, but I am just now getting around to having this taken care of. I want to repair this radiator and get a set of the Unibiker guards on it. I tried to call Mylers, both numbers, and get no answer. Are they closed on Mondays or something? Anyway, I also tried their e-mail just now so maybe they will answer it. If not, is there any other way to get ahold of them? Thanks,

Josh

no need to even talk to him... he will call you if the repair bill is over $100... just send him your rad, a return address, your credit card info, and the model and year of your bike....

this guy does really great work and you will probballly have your rad back in one week from the day you mail it... you can't go wrong..

Do you not have a local radiator shop :D . You may be very surprised how cheap and how good they can repair it :D . Just a thought. I HATE to send my shizit in the mail. Good luck.

I tried several local radiator shops that would not even look at it. After some searching, I found a guy here in town who does specialty work for the local racers. He said he could fix it for around $20. I will be ordering a set of Unibiker Rad Guards and braces soon. Thanks for all of the input.
