Hi, anyone know of a good aftermarket manufacturer for radiator? Looking to buy a new one instead of used.
My radiator is starting to corrode and will need replacing soon, thanks.

There are manufactures that make custom radiators and could make one for you ,but none I know of has a unit pre built, with space so tight on the wing you cant really move the hoses around, would be cool to have a custom built aluminum radiator though.

There is an aftermarket alloy radiator available for the GL1100. The mounting points are the same as the GL1000 but it needs a modification to the filler neck. The neck is vertical,rather than at an angle like the 1000, with the overflow spigot pointing the wrong way. But it looks like an easy mod change it.

Thank you, very much. Definitely will give these guys a call to find out more about their radiator.
