Folks,
This last weekend was a first, son highsided on a berm, and landed on the top lip of it, square on the radiator. It doesnt leak....(yet, fingers crossed) but darn is it folded back against the tank. Anyone know who I can ship this thing off to to get back into shape (its twisted a bit at the base as well, the kid crashes well!)
Thanks in advance.......and yes I will be purchasing some guards from DEVOL or, does any one have any other recommendations for Rad. guards (it was a very low speed get off, so am kind of concerned with the vulnerability of em)
Thanks
HR

What up brah,

Flatland racing makes the guards for Thumper racing (no ka oi) and these are beefier than the DeVols.

And yes there are some rad rebuilders here in the 48. I'll see if I can get a name and post it later.

If it makes you feel any better, I dropped (was actually knocked) mine on another bike and did the same thing. I addition to the rad, the shroud and cheap plastic gaurd was trashed. My Devol gaurds should be in tomorrow! I ordered a new half, $253 with shipping and AMA discount. ...there goes the pipe.

That's gonna leave a mark!

They are great on bikes, all of us out West use em as we tend to crash at speed which usually damages radiators a little more severely.....

vetwfo'er,
Is there a website for the radiator guards that you mentioned? I've seen the Devol rad guards, but I'd like to see some others... I've heard of the flatland racing ones but never seen them... even a phone number would be good.. thanks!

A buddy of mine went through three radiators last season on his YZ426.. I don't want to repeat his performance!

From your posts, HR, it is clear that you and your son have been having WAY too much fun for too long. This feeble attempt, though gracious, to lower our jealousy quotient will only help to a very minor extent.

Definately send it to Myler's as stated by buckholz. I sent out my crunched rad and they straightened that baby right out. It only cost me 35 bucks. That's his base charge, 5 dollars extra per leak that may have to be welded if one springs while straightening. But here's the good part, he won't charge you any more than 70 bucks regardless of how many welds might be necessary. Two thumbs up!

I will pull the Rad off and get it in the mail.......and the guards will be ordered as well........no leaks.....all intact just bent to angles that the designer never intended :O
Thanks everyone for your advice and assistance on this....Mahalo!

Longtime: Too much fun? Not possible, like too much sex, too much roosting on a 500, like too many fellow dirt bikers to ride with.......and dont be jealous.....no green sticker here, open riding, year round 78-82 degree temps (year round) nice breeze, awesome scenery where we ride of the North Shore surfing area........dont be jealous.....no reason to be
:)
Thanks again folks! Your the best!
