Radiator repair?
« on: May 11, 2017, 06:57:46 PM »
Hi, I have a hole in my GSX 1250 fa radiator, caused by the radiator guard rubbing! I have been quoted £550 for a new one! Any pointers for me to bring that price down? Is there a supplier out there that can supply at a reasonable price.

Failing that has anyone had any experience with repairing a radiator? If so is it worth considering and where is the best place for me to go?

Thanks in advance for any help. :-)

if ebay doesn't bring anything up for you search google for radiator recore in your area last one we had done on my dads Granada cosworth (car is long since dead) was half price compared to what ford wanted at the time

Thanks for the reply, I tried E-Bay but it seems they are rare as hens teeth. Just waiting for a price for repair. Fingers crossed.

A company at Silverstone, Docking Engineering will re-core a radiator.
