YZ450F Radiators… Out-Cool & Outlast

After a victorious debut of the radical, new 2010 Yamaha YZ450F, James Stewart’s early-season injury proved that he is not the Man of Steel. And just like the world’s best riders, even the most revolutionary motorcycles have chinks in their armor.

In the heat of battle, a motocrosser’s lightweight, perilously located radiators can suffer from boiling over and succumb to crash damage. While racing or in trail-attack mode, this can lead to overheating, short-term power loss, premature oil breakdown or worse.

That’s why FLUIDYNE Powersports developed stronger, more efficient radiators for the latest-generation YZ450F. This performance and durability upgrade keeps its forward-tilted motor at optimum temperature in low-air-flow riding conditions and provides consistent cooling in high-speed situations.

Handcrafted in California, these beefy radiators utilize a highly efficient, 28mm wide, 18-tube core with 5mm tall air fins. Compared to the stock radiators, the FLUIDYNE Powersports units boast 25 percent more fluid capacity to lower coolant temperatures significantly.

FLUIDYNE radiators are also built more rugged to fend off damage. Constructed from aircraft-quality aluminum, structural highlights include thicker materials throughout, a CNC-machined billet filler neck, beaded hose connections for leak-proof sealing and a stainless-steel radiator cap rated at 16 lbs. These components are held together with substantial TIG welds to withstand extreme conditions and produce a crash survival rate far exceeding the OEM parts.

Not only do FLUIDYNE Powersports’ new YZ450F radiators out-cool and outlast the stock units, they come with a one-year warranty and install easily (even with aftermarket fuel tanks), utilizing the factory mounts and hardware.

Multi-time winners in the 2009 SCORE and Best in the Desert series, including the grueling Baja 1000 and 1000-mile Vegas-to-Reno race, FLUIDYNE Powersports radiators have been proven around the world. Developed and manufactured in the United States, they are built upon 50 years of experience in vehicular fluid dynamics.

Available for Yamaha’s entire lineup of off-road bikes and other late-model motorcycles, ATVs and side-by-side vehicles, FLUIDYNE Powersports radiators are distributed by Parts Unlimited, Tucker-Rocky, WPS, KK Motorcycle Supply, MTA, Southern Motorcycle Supply, CV-4 and IMS Products-making them readily available through thousands of dealers nationwide.

When the heat is on, FLUIDYNE Powersports radiators keep things cool. For more information, log on to FluidynePowersports.com.
