Radiator damage

While riding 2 weeks ago I set the bike down with a bump and slightly damaged the left radiator. It does not leak and the bike runs fine. The side of the radiator got bent in a bit right where the cooling shroud attaches and the first column of fins is squashed and the second just a tiny bit. It does not seem to cause any problems but would like a little reassurance from those who have experience in this sort of thing.


Mine's quite scrunched in and back but not leaking. I unbent it a bit by pulling the shroud and tugging/prying on it so the plastic fit a little better. Some day this winter I'll send it off to get it straightened and will consider some Devol guards. If not leaking yours should be okay. I'v heard good things about Mylers radiator repair.

Protect your investment with DEVOL RADIATOR GUARDS. The cost is roughly $68.00 and can save bug bucks on a major radiator repair. As my name implies I am the King of Crash. These things work.

Yeah, I checked into the Devol guards and will put them on when the left side gets repaired or replaced. Boy, I wish I knew about them before this happened but as they say hindsight is always 20/20.
