WTB: Honda Factory Radiator for VX

My VX radiator has a slow leak. I purchased a used OEM one from Ebay and it was DOA with a crack in the end cap. It is getting returned.

Anyone have a stock radiator they would be willing to part with? I'd be willing to work with you on shipping or if you are in SoCal I might be able to pick it up.

Thanks in advance!

I bought a new non-OEM one on ebay last March which has worked fine so far after more than 10K miles. They are now available for a ridiculously low $33 shipped. You really can't go wrong with that. I believe the ebay seller was Radiator Connection. Autozone wanted $120 for essentially the same radiator - which was an aluminum core with plastic ends. Get them while they're "hot". Double pun intended!

$69 and free shipping for a brand new radiator.

otherwise it appears that $80-100 will get a brand new radiator from an auto parts store where you get to deal with a person face to face, and if it doesnt work they might remember who you are, and will make sure you have the right part the very next day.

If possible, I'd like to stay with a Honda radiator. Anyone have any thoughts on where to obtain a 100% OEM Honda radiator?

AutoZone radiators may have plastic end tanks, but so does the OEM and they are lifetime warrantied.

I found a slightly used OEM to the door for $80. So far it seems to be working great!
