radiator

this morning I punctured my radiator, going up a steep sandy hill at speed, front wheel came up (which I wasn't expecting) and ended up slamming her on her side. being sandy, handlebar went into the sand letting the side of the bike take all the brunt force. I bent the lower shroud mount around the front of the radiator and put a big hole right in the lower left corner of the front of the radiator. my question is this....... I am a recreation rider on a budget. I put the bike together this summer from peices. the radiator wasn't in great shape to begin with, had some dings in the frame and some bent cooling fins. is it worth getting recored? or would i be better off getting a new one. motor did not get hot at all so seems like it was doing its job, but just somewhat of an eyesore. should I stick with the oem rad., or is there a decent aftermarket at a reasonable price. and last question is is there anything I can get to support the mounting bracket for the radiator or shrouds? see ya all in moab......

Hi Dan

Get it reconditiond.
A good auto work shop should be able to direct you to the right people. We have a greatguy that makes and repairs rads at a good price but the Uk might be a little bit out of your neighbour hood. Ask around some auto shops and good luck.

Hello Dan,

I have a used radiator sitting spare. OK it is in the UK but I have sent a lot of parts across to the US without probems. Let me know if you're interested.

Cheers,
Simon

I've sent off radiators to Mylers Radiator Repair in Utah. He's cheap $55-Max, repair and return within two days, and the repairs have never failed. There is also a shop in socal, Pacific Pipe & Radiator in Fontana (I think). The add is always in the back of Dirt Rider along with Mylers.
