Hi
Any one know what donor bike the radiator for the YB9 Bellaria comes from? I had assumed the FZR600 but this does not seem to be the case.
Thanks

Hi, have you had a look at the Thudercat radiator. I believe the engine is from the YZF600 Thundercat. Either 3HE or 4JH designation.

Hi
The Bellaria was produced a full six years before the Thundercat appeared(Thundercat production code starts 4TV). The Bellaria used the FZR600 motor but if the 1990 FZR600 radiator is different then it's most likely to be an FZR400 radiator of that year.
Cheers
John

Hopefully found a solution.

Modified an FZR600 radiator. Had to remove the mounting points for the radiator grill, make an adapter strip to mount the rad onto so it could be secured to the bike, and reuse the old fan as the FZR600 fan would not fit.

Fair bit of fiddling, but seems to have done the job. Total cost is price of FZR600 second hand radiator Plus a trip of metal. Lot cheaper than 340 to get old radiator recored

Will post some pics
