Radiator

I recently ran into a deer and my radiator busted. Does anyone know if there are any other compatible radiators with the 2017 z650? The OEM radiator from bike bandit is $574, and I would like to spend less on one.

Holy toledo! I hope you're okay because those animals are huge. I can only find radiator guards and not the actual part itself.
Do you need to change out the whole thing or can you just install a new radiator screen and call it a day?

It was a smaller deer and I got lucky that I didn't go down. I hit the deet going around 50mph.

I need a whole new radiator. The side block of the radiator got bent and fluid leaks from it. It's a small leak, but it's a leak nonetheless. I don't think you can just replace the side block of the radiator can you? is it 1 piece?

Wow that's crazy, cant believe you we're able to keep the bike upright. And I haven't been able to come across any other brands that might fit aside from a replacement OEM part. Unfortunately I think you'll be stuck replacing the entire unit.

Maybe a radiator shop can repair it ?

Not much trouble to remove it & take it to the radiator shop and ask;
before you buy a new radiator.

Might not be as pretty, but a bit of black paint and back in business ?

Ride safely
