Hi,
May be a dumb question but I just want to be 100%, before I order parts.
Here's my 2012. CA (I just need fairing)
Can someone please confirm which line is correct for my bike?
Thank you

Any of them if you're just ordering fairings. Once you click one, just make sure your getting the DPBMC as that is the Yamaha blue.

Shop around too... as many oem part websites have different prices. I prefer www.parkshark.com.

Hi,
Now I have an opinion question.

The radiator has been pushed back against the two cooling fans.
They cannot spin because they are now touching the radiator.
(No leaks)

In your opinion:
Is is worth removing the radiator and trying to bend the brackets back into place?
OR
Is it a lost cause for whatever reason and just buy a new radiator?

Thank you

are you sure it’s not the fans but the radiator? If the rad took damage I would replace it. Once it springs a hole you’re stranded

Hi,
The impact came from the front.
I'm sure it's pushed back.
And
I rode it down the canyon and home with no leaks. I think it's still solid, just bent brackets.

You'll have to evaluate that. If it is just bent brackets, maybe you lucked out.

Aluminum doesn’t bend without getting a weak spot and radiators are cheap. I personally wouldn’t risk it, but the choice is yours

I looked closer and the fins are tweaked up on one side pretty good.
I'm going to remove it and if I can bang it out.
But I'm almost positive that it will need to be replaced.

Any aftermarket Companies make a good one, that is cheaper than OEM or just buy the "real deal"?

Thank you

Buy the real deal unless you’re planning on upgrading
