If you intend to spend a lot of time riding in the heat, get an OE rad. The Chinese rads work great, but usually have shittier flow, and fewer fins. I have put a shitload of them on beater bikes, and seen them on sport bikes, but I wouldn't do it on my personal higher hp bike if I was tracking or summer riding it. For everything else they are usually great.

The radiator doesn't look messed up in the pics. I have run and sold some bent ass radiators. If it doesn't leak, it's fine .

the filler neck is snapped off of the end tank, I could try plastic welding it on but I don't really trust that. I'm holding the cap/filler down in this pic.

we can split lanes here so I'm not *too* worried about heat


A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

hmm... I wonder how it'd look fork mounted.

or I could hard mount it if I wanted, the frame has the bosses for the fairing they just didn't drill/tap them, I guess they use the same casting vs RR.

if you made a D shaped piece of alum, with the curved part going all the way to the bottom of the radiator for support, and the flat part of open for the fins, but the upper part fully enclosed, so the filler neck could slot over, I bet you could get it to seal. but that might be a lot of fucking around. Ive got a couple of bikes with jb welded cooling systems, and motor patches. I don't think youll have any issues if you do it right. I would also jb some plastic pieces around the outside of the seem too. overkill. If its abs you use methyl ethyl ketone to melt the plastic back together. I dunno what the fuck radiator plastic is. I also don't think you can effectively use both and not have some sort of cross contamination. but I not sure. just seems like the MEK woudl fuck with the JB cure.
