Just wondering if anyone has ever used one of these radiators ?


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Aluminium-Motorcycle-Coolant-Radiator-For-98-05-Honda-CB-600F-CB600F-Hornet/162711680769?fits=UKM_StreetName%3AHornet&epid=17007162812&hash=item25e25f3701:g:XOIAAOSwIVhZ8ufY

just wondering if what looks like a hex plug on the left hand side actually unscrews in order to fit the cooling fan switch?

if not then is no good

Ive messaged the seller but no reply....guessing because they're non UK sellers.

Not had that one but I've used delkevic replacement which is good to its word on a 2 year guarantee. Had 2 in the last 3 years. BUT she lived outdoors all year and only slept in on icy mornings.

I would think it is a screwable plug - can't see why they would plug the sensor hole after going to all that trouble to reproduce the radiator.

But yeah - I would check with them first before you buy it - can you track down a phone number via the business address?

Just in case anyone else reads this. The plug does come out.
Got the rad delivered yesterday.
For a 60 quid Chinese copy itseems like a decent buy... Fit wise, All the hose unions etc are the right size!
Just had to take a file to one of the fan mounting holes and open it up a bit in order for fan mount holes to line up.

As for the function ill have get back to you on that once its proved itself... Or not.

Hope it works ok - I also bought an ebay China repro-rad which I haven't fitted yet - like yours it looks well designed and constructed.
