Crash damage: Radiators

Aprilia Futura – Radiators and coolant

The Aprilia RST1000 Futura is fitted with a pair of radiators, one each side of the bike, linked by a pipe across the top.

radiatorRadiators are common to all the 2000 RSV Mille-derived bikes, including the Falco and Caponord. You don’t need a Futura replacement part – just a left or a right one.

They are also vulnerable to crash damage, thanks to a mounting tab, which is glued in. If this happens to you don’t panic – it’s an easy fix and the details, thanks to Befbever, are linked below:

Of course, crash bungs and even panniers go a long way towards protecting the radiators in a spill.
