Damaged 2012 450 Radiator

6 posts in this topic

Was out on the trail today and got into a muddy section and dropped my bike down on a rock. My radiator on the left side of the bike when sitting on it is dented in a fair bit. No leaking out of the rad but I would like to replace it anyways. Do anyone know the OEM part number of have a link to the 12 WR 450 part fiche? Thanks!

I damage my left side radiator as well. I was on the single track and dropping in on turn and hooked a broken branch with my hand guard and slammed my bike against the tree witch bent my radiator. It is contoured to the frame now and I'm not touching it. Seems to work fine and is not leaking. If I do fix it someday it will be at a place here in Salt Lake called Mylers, they are inexpensive and do a good job.

Mine isnt leaking either so Im gonna ride it and just watch for over heating. I went to my local yammy dealer and priced the replacement rad and for OEM its around $299!! I almost shat my self. I bought the rad guards (http://www.yamaha-motor.com/sport/products/modelscitemdetail/5/210/1222/5390/2012/1/11034/0/0/detail.aspx) and Ill put em on soon as I get my rad fixed. For anyone looking into to these, they seem like they are VERY solid. Wish I had em on sooner :)
