FYI .... the original SB8R/S bikes had only the 2 side radiators. The lower 3rd radiator was added to assure enough cooling for street use ( where stop & go adds temp )

I had 3 SB8RS bikes . 2 of them i used in the colorado mountains aggressively ( over 50k miles ) with the 3rd lower radiator removed . Not a single over heat even in stop & go ...

However , i added a manual override switch to turn fans on as needed

no problem

just something to ponder

by the way , KTM made the OEM rads for my 3 SB8RS bikes

good luck

When I was at the London bike show I saw a stand by West Mercia Radiators. He makes both radiators and oil coolers.

It might be easier to get something custom / bespoke for the bike than to waste to much time looking. They might be able to make a thicker rad with more capacity rather than bigger.

The third radiator was built by IRIA and not by KTM ( like the others..) ...but now the factory is closed.

So you have to contact the bimota classic to ask them a brand new...if they have!
I don't know but if you don't live in the middle of a big city the third radiator is not necessary.

Best regards

Alex
