    Would there be some sort of guard on the front header?
    Needs something. I already have one dented one.

    Just ordered mine Fingers Crossed as I have two Rads with holes in them at the moment.

    New year update? I'm looking to do a major service on my bike now including coolant flush would be nice to just put the new radiator in

    The factory has shipped a dozen units our way, and we'll be filling orders as they were received.

    Sweet thanks Ken Looking forward to the delivery. Has been extremely hot here in Oz. So a good working radiator is most definitely required.

    Just got word that my radiator is not repairable...any updates? 6 months since placing order, trying to be patient, but I would like to move forward with prepping my bike for the coming season

    Wish I could give you better news, but we're still waiting here. The manufacture in Asia has been having issues with curving the cores. I know that they are still working on them but no commitment as to when we'll have them in hand. If anyone who has placed an order for a radiator is not comfortable with the long delay, just email me or shoot me a PM and we'll process a full refund. For those that are OK waiting, you're pricing is locked in at the pre-order price. Again, sorry it's taking so long, but with only 100 radiators on order, we're a small fish to a large manufacturer and all we can do is keep pushing for production

    Comparing the pics in the Ebay link and Ken's, it looks like the same radiator. All tabs are the same as far as I can tell but check for yourself.

    According to pics in this thread and Alvin's thread it the SM radiator that swaps with the added tabs.

    So I compared those pics on my higher res laptop instead of my phone. Looking at some weld anomalies and fin anomalies they look the same to me.

    My first thought was “now we know why Powercell can’t get delivery”...

    There is a similar discussion on Facebook and here is some info for you..

    ------------------------------------------------

    The 990SM cooler is in place. Took the fan and grill mounting tabs from the old one, easy welds, only on parts that are not holding coolant. The upper hose connection is too long and points too much inwards. Quite easy to make fit. Cut about 20mm off and make a little expansion to the end of the cut tube.

    The lower radiator hose on my SE has a groove worn in it from the fuel line where it crosses over it. Looks like replacements are no longer available. Short of spending $175 for silicone hoses and new clamps, Is their something else that fits?

    I bought a 30° bend silicone hose from a parts store and cut that to suit. Don't remember the diameter just now. The cooler in Boatmans picture is mine. Here's the rest of the pics, I don't think I put them on FB. Modified old pliers made a nice expander tool.

I know more than the ones everyone is waiting for but I have a new setup that bolts right on. The only thing I would do different I’d keep the 2 top tabs back so they don’t go beyond the radiator core. If anyone really needs one to be able to ride your 950 fire breathing dragon this is an option

    :sigh

    Any word? Based on the eBay link I shared it would appear that someone in Asia is in fact making radiators, and someone in CA is selling them...what are we looking at for our orders through PC?

    @PowerCell How is that exhaust system coming along?
    Was looking good last I saw.

    Bonked mine today.

    Without reading 178 messages on here, what’s the scoop on a replacement?

    While we’re on topic - are there any super awesome SE rad guards available?
