    Default Radiator Wanted for 1993 888 Strada

    Was in the process of trying to straighten the cooling fins of the radiator, but the core looks a little too beaten up to be worth saving, and the fins are brittle and falling apart. Anyone with a refurbished one that they might part with, or any recommendations on who to take it to (based on previous threads, I would like to go to a proven refurb shop).

    Not sure where you are based but this place in Ipswich has a good reputation for rad repairs:
    http://www.sheldrakeandwells.co.uk/
    Having said that, they weren't able to fix the rad from my 1198S...

    This place (in Haverhill) might be worth a call (i was going to take my leaky rad there, but eventually decided to break open the piggy bank and buy a new Ducati one - don't ask the price...):
    http://www.paceproducts.co.uk/
    Finally, I just came across this site, no idea if it's the sort of thing they could do:

    Apologies if you're nowhere near East Anglia!

    Thanks Andrew. I am in Surrey and Pete has highlighted a company near me to explore the options with.

    Thanks Pete. Have you any experience of them or know anyone who has?

    I saw their site and looks pretty decent.
