Aftermarket Radiators

Hi After clocking up 60000 kms on my 1198 the original radiator has eaten a few too many stones and has developed a small leak. Would like to replace it and a search yielded this https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ducati-848-...r/283106314076 or this https://www.ebay.com/itm/Aluminium-C...e/282785420054 Anybody have any experience with one of these. There appears to be a least 3 ebay sellers selling the same sort of item. Or does anyone have any other recommendations.Cheers

Buy 2 and cut one open so we can see how good/not good it is!

Iíve definitely seen them on bikes, but never gotten to see any actual testing or even side by side photographic comparison of fins, tubes, tanks etc.

I can say being welded is nice compared to being crimped like the OEM ones.

I honestly don't think it is worth repairing. It has had a radiator guard on it but has still taken a lot of damage also a lot of the cooling fins are blocked with seeds and insects. Spent a lot of time last winter removing insects- seeds and straightening the cooling fins with a tooth pick. I think its time for a new one.
