The radiator did change sometime after 08.
When, I'm not sure, but definately by 2015.
That could be part of your fit problem.

What radiator did you go with?
I plan on one for next summer, but I haven't found alot of options, and it's hard sorting through all of the chinese ones.
Thanks

No, I don't want a cheap replacement.
I want a quality made radiator, with a thicker core, that will bolt in to my 700 without modification, to drop the engine temperature by a few degrees.
Which is hard to find...and why I asked you which radiator you had.
Based on the rest of the high dollar parts in your 700 pics, I assumed you had an oversized radiator...and I wanted to know details, and where you got it.

It is oversized but needed to be wider not taller

Around '15 or '16 the radiator and fan changed. Only interchange together as a pair.

I ask for a name, not repeated price warnings.
I know quality costs money.
I haven't skimped or cut corners anywhere else in my build.
Yet, I just keep getting big shot answers from you, like you think I can't afford to get what you have, and want to keep warning me about it being expensive...no kidding, I expect it to be.
I honestly could care less.
Dez told me above that Fluidyne makes them.
Which simply answered my question, and I will check those out.

Got a new radiator and compared it to the old one and they were identical besides.... that the new one is at least twice as thick. So I guess when it warms up tomorrow ill have to take the the that is on there right now off and see how it compares with the new one I just got.
I'm wondering if maybe the other one I bought was too thick as well. I hadn't thought of that before.
