LT250R Aluminum Radiators
« on: February 17, 2016, 10:24:52 am »
Do the aftermarket aluminum radiators cool any more efficiently than the stock rad?Just curious if anyone has ran one and noticed a difference?Any issues with fit.etc?
Can,t fix stupid.:)

Yes, a thicker radiator will cool at a higher rate.  There is more surface area for the air to contact the fins on the radiator.

Watch out though. The cheap ones on Ebay don't fit well

This was a used one but clean I picked up locally for $20.Not sure of the manufacturer but ya it took a bit to mount it in.Didn,t line up/fit good at all.

Where you able to get it mounted with a little tweaking?
Does it leak?

Ya a little tweaking but no signs of leaking and I think it will be good althought I haven,t run it yet as some of the quad is still in pieces.Worst case scenario I put the stocker back in but I think this will work fine.

Sounds like the cheap banshee one. I had to "force" it mount, but it was nothing major and it worked great. Never leaked.

I put one in a customers Raptor 660 for him. The fit sucked but worked good. Couldn't beat it for $70.
