I'm looking for at least one as well, possibly more. I've been waiting a long time.

Not really all that cheap when you figure in the amount to relocate the top post and plug the hole that came with it.

The idea of the rad is good. I'm sorry, but the quality just wasn't there. I can live with the fitment issues. It's Chinese. The hole was not cool.

I may have gotten a lemon, but it is what I received. I am just frustrated. Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.

I've had no issues with other stuff from Economy. I will still be a customer and continue to support them.

They're cheap for a reason. Kudos to John for bringing them in to feed the demand. It sucks that he has to answer for poor build quality. It's a shame the quality couldn't match the look. They do look good.

Perhaps the next step is looking at the possibility of having John supply a fan kit. I took that route rather than a new radiator. The parts are out there and inexpensive. It would be similar to the shock kits he supplies now. One stop shopping for the modification. I'm sure the LC guys would also be interested.

Roger was doing a fan kit, I dont know if he still does one? if not i agree its a good thing, I need one... only has to be the wiring and the brackets, the actual fan should be something easy to find, ie R6.

I agree with Silver, John @ Economy should be praised for bringing these in, it was sad for him that the quality sucked as he answered for that, not the actual manufacturer.

I was looking forward to the crap shoot of buying a couple. They do look good and post mount was to be altered. Might have been ok. Next cheapest I've found are about $120. I have a welder skilled enough to repair substandard stuff.

The older ones John got fit ok so the guys making them just reverted to the original design with the fixings that didnt fit i guess.

Well they still sell on ebay and the uk guys have had good results by asking the sellers if they fit right before they order and then if they dont then the sellers have been putting it right. ebay has good buyer protection now, so worth a go perhaps?
