06 fireblade radiator problem!

Hi guys:

I woke up this morning, the sun was out. It was cold but the roads were dry. I took the blade out of the garage, started her up. After 5 minutes a green liquid started to dribble from the radiator..

Honda sent someone out within the hour, but the problem was caused by a 'stone chipping' and therefore not covered by warranty.

If anyone knows where i can find a new radiator & costs please reply.

Thank you.

my poor blade

Re: 06 fireblade radiator problem!

cheers guy's, i will get it fixed, it's just finding the part. Thanks Jason for the earlier post, but i.ve encountered a couple of problems when using ebay. (lost £1500 on a wild horse!) I made some calls today going over the options of what to do, 1 option was to repair the damaged radiator, but if it doesnt look like new, then i wont be happy. 2nd option is to fit new, he's going to get back to me with cost for part & labour etc..

Cheers.

Re: 06 fireblade radiator problem!

A radiator repair shop should be able to fix it. If not... eBay.

Re: 06 fireblade radiator problem!

Try a cycle salvage yard also. Ebay is a plus. There is also a new site called CycleSpace.com
