Are you the eBay seller??

Read this sellers NEGATIVE feedback before considering this item. As with most Chinese built radiators you run the risk of it not fitting and being rubbish quality.

I’m not the seller, just my NS400R radiator was found may not be used again, my bike was imported from Japan last year, it can run on the road last month because of government regulation, but found many things may repair including the radiator, so I send mind for them to re-production because can’t find any one in the world.

Or you could just buy a real one. ;)

NS400 radiators come up on Yahoo and eBay pretty regularly - as in every time spongebob breaks another NS400.

Yes, I already bought one form spongebob last he had split a NS400R, or even we can buy from him that was used for 30 yrs!! The new production by that guy has high capacity compare to the original, like rg500.com sells, but I had not success to contact rg500.com or they stop the product.

Seller is in AUS and it ships from China.

If it fits and doesn't leak, I'd sure like to have one for my NS400R.

I definitely don't need it right now, I just hate to miss out. Might not be available when I'm ready.

I'll probably just get burned. Again. Have to think about it and try to find someone that's bought one.

I have had mixed results with chine produce - some are decent cosmetically but structurally rubbish, and then others are pretty decent as they are made by current OEM parts suppliers.

I once got some bearings that where made from silver paper mache ;)

You takes your chances I guess.

I just saw an RZ350 rad here at my place that came from China and didn't come close to fitting properly. It is hit and miss, and lately it seems mostly miss. With the NS400R rad being early in its production run it might be ok. The early RZ rads were ok, but as time went on they got worse and worse.

In that case I'll put up the theory that they always used the last fabricated piece as the sample for the next one. At the end you get the copy of the copy oft the copy .....

That could very well be the case Martin.

They seem to come from multiple suppliers, so perhaps there are multiple manufacturers. Or, maybe it's simply down to poor quality work from poor quality craftsmen, if you can call them that.

Please let us know how the new radiator fits, and if it functions with no leaks.

Did you get the hoses from the same seller? :cool:
