Just got first Bike (KLR650 (2015)) - Radiator question

Just got my first bike, 2015 klr650, month ago and managed to lay it over today and crack the radiator and need to replace. Every Google search results in only klr 650 2007 to 2012 radiators. Can anyone advise me on where to order a radiator for 2015 klr 650. Thanks!

Radiator shop can't repair your radiator?

A certain company specializes in motorcycle radiator repair (if the local boys can't handle the job); don't have links myself, maybe some knowledgeable forum member does and will post them.

Your call, repair or replace, but . . . you're talking big money for the latter option; even an off-shore Chinese version might be more expensive than a repair job. Again, your call!

(To prevent future occurrences, might consider a radiator guard or IMS plastic fuel tank.)

P.S. Don't know the severity of your damage, but . . . JB Weld sometimes offers long-lasting radiator repair.

Hey st9,

2008 to 2014 pn 39061-0098, 2015 pn 39061-0690 this is for a complete assembly for $822.42 I don't know what the difference is between the pre 15s to the post 15s. 2015 Kawasaki KLR650 (KL650EFF) Radiator | CyclePartsNation Kawasaki Parts Nation.
I use these guys for parts research but have not ordered from them as I am in Canada.
You may want to price a rad at the dealer you got the bike from. Have you found the crack? There must be other stuff broken as well.

After I read the amount Ebay/ parts / parts bikes entered my brain.

Just a stab in the dark but I'm laying odds that any 2008-2015 cooler will go
right in there.

Gotta agree even more on getting the thing soldered/ brazed at a radiator shoppe.

Here's the link to the Motorcycle Radiator Shop In The Sky:

Myler's Radiators, Motorcycle Radiators, Radiator Repair, Radiator Sales, Offroad, ATV, Street, parts, accessories, apparel, service, jacket, glove

Name/Address/Phone Number:

Myler's Radiators

6722 S Airport Rd. Suite A
West Jordan, UT 84084
Phone: 801-955-1421

I imagine the difference in 2015 radiators from previous Generation 2 parts is revision of design/materials, but . . . imagine form/fit/function remains compatible among all Generation 2 radiators (i.e., expect a 2008 or later to plug 'n' play in a 2015).

Going to see about getting it repaired. If I can't just going to roll the dice and order a pre 2015 radiator. They look exactly the same as mine from the pictures online and I read that the bIke hasn't changed since 2007. I'll follow up with crash bars and radiator guard and stay out of Florida's sugar sand lol.

GoMotor just spotted the differences.

If you are purchasing used, purchase both a radiator and FAN Assembly from 2008-2014.
