Replacement Radiator.

I need a new radiator, anyone have experience with the ebay ones? Their price is much more attractive.

I don't have any experience with the ebay rads personally, but I recall someone saying that he bought one of the chinese rads and it was fine. I can't remember if it was on this forum or another though.

Edit: I just assumed you were talking about the ones from China, I see a lot of them listed from the US as well. Big difference from factory price!

I think they are all manufactured in china but some of the sellers have a warehouse in the US with them.

I'm thinking of the ASI_Performance one, I'm curious if anyone has compared build quality/durability and if it fits.

They say 100% refund within 30 days so worse case I can just send it back, I also got an attractive price from mylers radiators for 65 more.

I thought about a repair but I question if repairs will last and I have a wall of JB weld which will be a bitch to remove.

I did a few searches trying to find that thread, but I can't seem to locate it... I even checked a few of the other "KLR specific" sites and couldn't find it. For the price it's almost worth the gamble though! Like you say, if there's problems or it doesn't fit you could always send it back

It was Willy's that had one of those radiators and unfortunately he's left the building. However he was happy with them so I don't thnk you would have a problem.
