If you fall don't do it on the left side

Yesterday I got out of the mechanic with less $$$ at my wallet and a new radiator.
The only one started leaking and when we removed the side panel and fan it was quickly seen why ...



It appears that the fan axel just dig its way through the middle of the radiator. May happened due to a fall to the left side on one of my off road trips in the desert.

Sorry to see you need to buy a new radiator.

The radiator/fan was one of the first-found vulnerabilities in 2010, especially off of pavement. The other vulnerability is the thin sump of the motor.

It's why so many of us have bars on the side and skid plates beneath.

Neither, look at Symtec. 40 bucks and work just as well if you have basic wiring skills.

I've crash tested my OEM boxes off road once and came away unscathed. I'm sure aftermarket is stronger, though I don't want/need huge panniers.

Congrats on the new bike. I love the white ones.

I have OEM grip heaters, probably the hottest I've ever had.

I'm currently using Givi B36Ns, which are similar size and shape to the trekkers, but I will eventually upgrade to Holans because I want to be able to lash stuff to the lids, which can open hinged front or back, or lift straight off. I considered the OEMs but I've read stories of the rear nylon mounts snapping off from drops and I also don't like the way the lid only opens with a hinge on the front. Of course YMMV and if you're mainly a road rider who doesn't camp the OEMs might work just fine.

thanks for the replies. i think i'll try the symtec atv grips like i had on my vstrom w/aluminum throttle tube. the stock plastic throttle tube warped from the heat of the grips. the throttle tube was around 30.00 or so. it was the same bend or twist as stock. luggage: i have all winter to think and save for it. i would like to locate some connectors so I can plug and play grips, lights, etc. i know eastern beaver has them, but i'm sure they are around here as well.

Be careful about getting ATV grips. They're the same size diameter for both sides because they use a thumb throttle. Get motorcycle heated grips.
