take it to a rad shop and try and get it fixed 1st! Save yourself some $$$$$

I used to work at a radiator shop and we fixed motorcycle radiators all the time. They should charge you between $20-$30 for the repair, thats a lot cheaper than buying a new radiator!

didn't realize you were in Thailand! Send it out. It will still be cheaper. I searched some threads on TT for rad shops for you, but their all in NA. I'm sure there must be some out your way if you look. How is the riding there? Would love to see some pictures of the trails you ride. Cheers.

i checkt e-bay and a new right side radiator is 98 usd and its better than the oem part reducing temp 25% more...i might go for it...

sending the rad back and forward will take time and cost heaps..and to fix

it poorly will propably not last anyway...

to the question of trails well the tracks for first of all are small and boring

there is no big tracks anywhere...trails are ok...but had an crash 4 months ago so still recovering for on month to get my muscles back in order..so havent been able to ride for that long...good side is u can ride year around

bad side its freacking hot especially with the gears on...:thumbsup:
