Downed 08 KLR rad crunched
Have about 1000kms on the 08 KLR and was going along a farm field when I hit a wet grass patch. I was going roughly 15 km/h and went down on the left side. I twisted the rad, broke the rad switch, bent the gear pedal, and some minor scuffs on the left fairing. I went to the local Kawi dealer to get prices. The rad is $825 CDN and the switch was $126! This is crazy. I even called a dealer in Michigan and they wanted $719 US for the rad, $85 for the switch and 35 for the gear pedal. How can Kawi charge such high prices? I paid $6100 CDN for the whole bike....
Anyone have any ideas for replacement rads or other ideas? I will look into fixing the rad as it isn't too bad but as the left fairing is mounted on the rad, if it isn't perfect, the fairing won't fit well. Guess I need to order rad guards. Any recommendations for what to get there?
Thanks for any input.
