    Radiator for 2012 Explorer

    My friend recently damaged the radiator on his 2012 Explorer and wishes to source a used part as a replacement. Does anyone know if the same radiator is common throughout the range or if he needs one from a first generation bike.
    Many thanks

    It may be possible to get it repaired if you can find a local specialist, but obviously it does depend on how bad the damage is. Rad repairs aren't as difficult or expensive as you might expect and may be cheaper & quicker than finding a 2nd hand one in good condition.

    I would agree a repair would normally be the best way. Unfortunately, my friend caused quite extensive damage to the radiator when he went wide on a bend and collided with a stone wall. I don't think it is looking much like a radiator now.
    Fortunately that was the worst damage, so if he can't get a good secondhand one, he may have to go the  new part route.

    According to this link, the same part number (T2100854) is used for Explorer models from 2012 to 2018:

    There's some on ebay in UK too, and if you google triumph specialist breakers you might  find some more.

    I found a couple used ones by Googling the part number.
