Stop taking it to the dealer! A new stock radiator and fan costs 400$, a pwr radiator costs 400$, the dealer charged you 700$ see the difference

I'm sorry you had to pay 700.00! I'm not sure how much OEM radiators cost, but regardless the price seems steep unless it took them several hours to pinpoint the problem. Most of the messed up Raptor radiators I've encountered where from a roll over. Some of them got their radiators repaired from 25-50.00 locally, and the others updated their stock radiator to a Fluidyne oversize one for $354. Please be sure to check the coolant the next few rides out to make sure everything is in tip top shape.

Don't go to a stealership and get a aluminum radiator guard. My pro armor guard has saved my radiator many times.
