zzr 250 Radiator Wanted (Bris)

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' started by BalmyBrowny, Apr 1, 2007.

  1. hey all.... have just discovered tonight that have a leaky radiator :( don't know how it happened but have been leaking fluid last 3 days..... got it home tonight and had a look... filled up radiator and turned bike on from cold... fluid started coming out from radiator itself... not hoses or anything :( so not happy... anyone know somewhere in bris that i can get one from or has one spare??? gonna try to call a few wreckers tomorrow but not sure if any will be open on sundays :( westside places would be much appreciated...

  2. You might want to also try a specialist motorcycle radiator repairer, they can be fixed a lot cheaper than than a replacement. New the ZZR is $1060, so second hand is probably stil pretty heavy.
    Good Luck
  3. ouch... that stings!!! didn't realise they would be so expensive :( will definitely check out repaireres... thanks heaps for heads up
  4. You're welcome. If it can be repaired, a good repairer will seal any welds with epoxy, this stops any leaks later on if there are any voids in the weld, so may be worth asking before any work is done.
  5. will do :) just rang around a couple.. and found a guy who will fix it for no more than $50... will check that he seals with epoxy too to make sure... thanks heaps for your help Mithel :) hope your overheat troubles can be fixed nice and cheap as well....
