Default New to the club

So here it goes. Just picked up a 2013 250XC. The bike was for sale on this site by a buddy of mine, he gave it away with every goodie you can put on it. I've been on the orange bikes for the last 10 years and still love my 200XCW. I'm being courted by the Gasser and so far I like the bike, not too in love with taking care of it (what's up with all the nuts). Just put 2 holes in the radiator by a rogue branch. Getting it fixed but looking for a replacement. Anyone know how far back they go or match another bike?

Welcome aboard. Mark's loss is your gain.

Which rad did you mangle?

Well I still have Mark's last bike that he hated and I love it . It was the rear brake side rad. Just had it fixed (epoxy) by a local shop. We'll see if it works. Ran into another problem, rear master cylinder is toast. I complained this bike has no rear brakes, maybe this was the problem. If I am looking for a rebuild kit what year Honda's fit this?

Thanks.

Welcome!!!
Another hearty endorsement for Mylers. They are reasonable, quick, and do outstanding work. They can repair even the most mangled rad. It will come back looking virtually new.
For a few bucks extra they will gusset up the weak points making your old rad better than new.

Great buy, you will enjoy. These bikes are hardy, I have 2in X 1in hole in my rad from a stick as well. I just repaired it and it still runs great and no heating issues.
