Crushed Radiator

Postby 2001kdx » 08:19 pm May 04 2007

I had a head-on collision with another rider today, and his bars smashed my shroud which crushed my left-hand radiator. On the way home there were no leaks or serious signs of heat (only riding for 15 mins) So what should I do? I'll try to get a picture real soon but my ankle hurts like hell.

Little $HIT on a KX85 got away with barely a scratch! I get a cracked headlight shell, ripped graphics and a radiator!!!

Pictures

I got some pics here. I can't walk yet but I'll fill up some coolant in the tank and go out riding to see if it leaks. If it doesn't leak(hoping), I'm all set. I also hope I can embed the pictures correctly...

Ebay has some right now. There is a pair for "buy now" $125. Also a left radiator for auction.

When I dented mine I tried to bend it back into shape. I did an OK job but it took a lot of time and I reallly wish I'd just sent it to Mylers. I bet it would have come back almost as-new. I had rad guards on order at time of my get-off but they hadn't arrived yet (ain't that always the way).

I put on both Devol and WP guards afterwards. I've been looking on eBay for ages but everyone I see has had some kind of damage or is too expensive. The left on eBay now isn't bad but it's been dinged.

I'd just go to Mylers and then get some guards.
