Can anyone recommend a radiator for a zx9r powered striker.
Am I right in thinking early polo/micra might fit the bill.
Would this work (ebay item number 281632515387)
Cheers
Chris

As long as you have the correct size & space to mount it in & inlet/outlet are in the right place then that should be fine, very similar to what we use with the ZZR1400 - that's a good price too!

Hi pal I had Martin keenan of mk engineering make my last two rads for previous builds tell him what size you require and he will make it to suit and I think he's very reasonable with his prices.pics of my rad in archive hope this helps

I've got an early micra rad on my blade engine. Seems to be sufficient for everything I've done so far, but it's not massively light and quite expensive compared to a polo rad. I'd change to polo if I needed to do any replumbing/broke it.

I have just upgraded my Striker to an all allow radiator (2lt Duratec is going to produce a little more heat I think) and now have a spare Polo radiator in very good condition. I guess its seen only a few hundred miles on the car, 20 including delivery and it has some angle brackets that may or may not suit your Striker chassis (they seem to change rad mounts every other build!) and the fan switch?

U2U me your email address is you are interested and I will send some pictures to show the condition

I use one of these on my ZX10R Mac1, my mate used the same radiator on his CBR1000R engined Mac1 too.

I used a Clio rad, inlet and outlet in just the correct place, no problems in 3000 miles.
