Radiator Upgrade

I busted my radiator mounts on my Revolt (among other things) and was thinking sense it's broke should I upgrade it.

I ride dunes and have had issues with overheating.

Is there an aftermarket or Redline radiator with a larger fluid capacity or should I stay with stock?

OK you have my attention, what happened this weekend? Let's see some pictures. Sounds like you joined the roll over club.....

Re: Radiator Upgrade

I rolled 10 times according to the rescue party.

I remember 3.

I was on top of Sand Mountain Nevada and went over the top too fast, approx 350' later I was trying to get out of my Revolt wondering what hit me with people thinking how is he getting out under his own power.

20 stiches later and a concussion I'm working on getting her back on the hill.

I'll post up some pics when my wife stops bitching at me...she is unusually loud today... :-)

That radiator beat the crap out of me the whole way down. It WILL be beefed up.

Re: Radiator Upgrade

She took these this morning.

The machine held up surprisingly well with the exception of that radiator.

Re: Radiator Upgrade

WOW ! 350 ft? If you had been on a Quad, this story would end a lot differently.

Sorry to hear about the crash. Love that cage!

The stock radiator works quite well with a 12" fan, but does need more support.
Dune Monster came up with simple, yet strong way to support the radiator. He used a few Loop-type cushioned aluminum alloy clamps. These are a clamp used to hold tubing and hoses. He has them around the frame, bolted to the radiator. One or two on each side makes a big difference. I think he got them from Aircrafts Spruce, part number MS21919-WDG20. For 1.25" tube.

MS21919 DG & WDG CLAMPS from Aircraft Spruce

Re: Radiator Upgrade

Bear Foot,

Wow, what a simple and cheap fix!

I was thinking of having 4 strips of 3/16" x 1/2" stock welded in place then remounting the radiator. Over kill I know but it would never come into the cockpit again.

I like this idea better.

My old fan was never found-neither was my prized Rebel whip flag...

Re: Radiator Upgrade

If you look how I made my radiator guard, it supports the entire length of the radiator.
I'm still thinking of adding a few clamps. It looks good to.

As far as rolling is concerned, two catagories exist. " There are those that have, and those that will" I belong to the first!

Re: Radiator Upgrade

where else did you get hurt besides the stiches in the head?
did your legs get hit by the dashboard or the brake master cylinder?
