Replacement Radiator quick question

Post by Dr Doalot »

Hi all

Just had my 400 fail Mot on the forks. Got them replaced OK but the rad needs replacing

Quick question.... do 1990 rads (which I think are curved not straight but stand to be corrected) fir the L models?

TIA

Hi,

The only model to have a straight rad was the H1, after which all subsequent models had a curved rad. But, there is again a difference between the H2 and L rads which is the lugs for mounting. The H2 lugs are on the sides and the L’s are on top.

Hope that helps. 👍👍

Good luck finding a rad for an L model... As rare as a rare thing gets

A recore will cost you £300 - 350 if that needs doing.

What's actually wrong with the rad?
UK ZXR400 L3 (1993) - Fully restored and on the roads, my green beast!
JPN ZXR250 A2 (1990) - Revs to 19,200rpm... 'nuff said :smt003

Hi

Apparently it is leaking around the filler cap

You are right they are like hens teeth. H version more common for some reason.

I did find one from Romania inc fan. Cost €103 and as we are no longer in the EU delivery was €90 (instead of €10!)

Found it by searching on part no rather than description
