F3 800 radiator on 675

My radiator took a knock to the cap knocking the radiator cap seat out of round. I have tried to properly flatten to get the cap to seal but once pressure rises and the spring compresses the system draws in air from under the cap entering air. I am thinking of replacing the whole radiator, the 800 rads seems to be easier and cheaper to acquire then the 675 rads. Does anyone know if an 800 radiator will fit the 675?

Thank you

The rads on the 675 & 800 are the same, the rad caps are a weak point of the F3 and fail quite often. Personally I would replace the cap first. John

I did replace the cap with a Ktm 1.4 with the same result.

Problem fixed.. I bent the clips tighter on the rad cap that keep the cap sealed tight. This seems to have fixed the problem.
