    2005 ZX6R. When I got the bike it had a small hole in the radiator. Small and not leaking. Now I got back from a ride and it had started leaking a bit from the top corner on both front and back by the looks, From the alloy fins. My preference would be to replace the radiator to not worry about...

    I need some help here. I got a 2007 zx6r with 12,000 miles. about a month ago I pulled in the driveway noticed a small puddle of coolant. NO leaks. Found the coolant overflow jug filled to the top with coolant and it spit some out. Figured the radiator cap went bad, coolant was boiling over into...

    My 2013 636 radiator is leaking and I've tried repairing it using aluminum brazing, but there is still a leak somewhere that I cannot see/reach. I'm considering just buying a new radiator, but the 2013-15 model radiator is easily over $700 new. I also found a 2009-12 radiator in good shape for...

Both the steam and the smell go away just as the bike...

    Hi all, Hope someone can help. My bike has been standing for 4 years (long story). Recently got it through the MOT (UK), have replaced all fluids in the bike and runs just fine other than one thing. Problem is that it overheats intermittently (and yes it does overheat, says 'HI' and gets...

    Hey guys, just wondering what other year Rads are interchangeable with a 07-08 ZX6R. Had a leak about a month ago...turned out the lower fan bracket had broke and dug a hole into a fin causing a huge leak. Well took the rad off and took it to get fixed...$40 and quick and worked great! Yesterday...

    I took my radiator out because the piece that held the bottom of the fan broke and punctured my radiator. When i took it to the radiator shop to basically patch it, the guy told me the radiator was no good. Now i need another one. The sooner i find one the better because as soon as i fix the...
