Surely one of the specialist firms out there can effect a repair on your current rad for a lot less £££?From what I gather asking MV for a warranty claim on a radiator is about as futile as fitting a handbrake on a horse. So finance minister consulted and radiator ordered.
£470 I think it is give or take a tenner. Yeah Ed has someone who can do it, quickish turn round but I'm getting worked like a Trojan at the moment and can't spare the time to be going up and down to Eds, I'm hoping it will be here in time for the service and to be honest I don't want to slum it in my 32yo Vw camper for that long.Surely one of the specialist firms out there can effect a repair on your current rad for a lot less £££?
Just looked up the cost of a new rad on Evolution Bike, almost €500 :jsm:
Either that or crack an egg into it opcorn:
Aye that's right my luck has to change sometime hahaha. That could be the case or just plain old lack of QCI have seen the radiators on eBay from Italy for around £300 depending on euro/pound rate. Did not mention postage though.
You had the rear preload bracket snap as well? Makes you think if the were a bit rough with this bike when putting it together at the factory.
Glad you got it sorted out. What was all the blue stuffJust a quick update, had the radiator replaced and my 9k mile service a week ago now (thanks to Ed and his boys) and I'm happy to report all is well again :drummer:
Turned out the leak was at the back of the radiator, sorry got no pictures of it or any idea what caused it, if i remember to ask him the next time I'm on the phone to him i will. Also had the preload bracket changed at the same time.
Nobody seems to know why or what caused it to be the colour it was, i was in two minds as to put a sealant into it or not, gave Ed a phone and was advised against it, so it wasn't anything i put in.Glad you got it sorted out. What was all the blue stuff
