No problems with greater volume over stock

TODD in CA – Machine this part was bought for: 2009 YAMAHA YZ250F

Comments On Nov 10, 2015:Have had these radiators on since 2009 with no problems whatsoever. Not sure about the guy that had issues but no issues here. Never overheated and we ride Ocotillo Wells desert even in July with over 100 degree temps. Regular season we ride dunes and that puts a huge load on the bike without any trouble. Riding in the forest of Kennedy Meadows or Wildomar with slow speeds shows no sign of stress. Now is 2015 and that is six years. Fluidyne is a reputable company that many four and two wheel racers trust and so should you if you are into superb quality! Hope this helps others not shy away due to one bad experience. I saw 19 people respond to that isolated incident from over 4 years ago. Buy American when possible and support local vendors!

More cooling!

STEVEN in MT – Machine this part was bought for: 2005 YAMAHA WR450F

Comments On Sep 16, 2013:Smashed the stockers even with guards. Installed the new Fluidyne units which bolted right up. Bigger cores and a tad more anti freeze are a bonus! These are much stronger than stock, looks like welded aluminum plate not thin stamped aluminum. The bike runs noticably cooler now.

Great radiator so far

Gary in CA

Comments On Jan 05, 2012:I popped a radiator on my '08 WR450 back when I first got it in 2009, and I replaced it with a fluidyne and its still working great. Never even use the overflow bottle that I can remember when doing hard single track. I would buy again.

Horrible quality!


Comments On Sep 23, 2011:Purchased a set of these radiators for my 2003 Yamaha WR450F. Was impresses with the appearance when I removed them from the box. Upon installing the left side I was disappointed to find that the hoses did not line up at all. I verified on Fluidyne's catalog that I had the correct part number and eventually figured out that the left side mounting bracket was welded on inside-out. Since I was riding the next day I cut off the bracket and re-welded on correctly. This improved the fit but I was still unable to get the lower hose to fit. I had to cut off the lower hose bib and rotate it about 30 degrees. When I cut the bib off I was horrified to find out that weldor who assembled this radiator used too much heat and filler rod and blocked the inside flow about 40%. I used a borescope to inspect the remaining welds and found all hose outlets blocked by up to 60%(I have photos). After half a day to fix these problems, I finally had a set of usable radiators. I contacted Fluidyne Powersports about this and recieved no response. Fluidyne Powersports should be ashamed of the horrible quality of this product.
I'm certain Rocky Mountain ATV/MC would have refunded my money before I repaired these radiators but I needed usable radiators on short notice. I'm also just as certain that any radiators exchanged would have had the same problems.
