    The first PWR's did not fit,
    the thinner second set of PWR's did not fit and are being modified
    and were ready the day after i came back to work.
    My convern is when i get home and try the PWR's and they don't fit,
    then i am up shits creek without a paddle.
    No radiators, no Condo.

    Just thinking i could put on the stockers and run with them,
    then go back to gitting the PWR's.

    Stock radiator is 18mm thick at the core.
    The 42mm thick radiator would fit with a stock header is my guess.

    The 32mm ones i got were messed up a bit, mounting holes too big, etc.

    A guy from PWR Adam has come and looked at the problem where the bike is and will sort it eventually.

    Note: the reason why i wanted the thicker radiators is, if i hole one,
    i can by pass that radiator and the engine can still run with one radiator without overheating.

    so there thicker rads will onlt fit with stock header pipes?

    do you have rad guards to help prevent holing 1?

    42mm would fit with stock header and a header that has the same tight radius out of the cylinder head as the stock header has.

    I have the "FAB" brand radiator guard / brace

    Starting to resemble a bike again Sean-O.

    Didn't like the way the B&B frame guards fitted, so gave them a little tweak, fit much nicer now. Not sure why they dont do it to start with.

    You and me both mate. Hopefully it will be a nice bike to ride.

    Got the barrel and piston fitted up tonight along with a few small things. Hopefully get my head back tomorrow from getting skimmed and the new valves seated.

    Not sure about rip mate, its just gotta go and i will be happy:lol3.

    Dont suppose anyone local to the Goldie has a cam shaft plug spare. It appears i didn't order one and it looks like i threw the old one out, if not, i'll try my luck with the local honda dealer.
