Cooling...

A couple of quick questions, would an after market radiator void a warrenty?

Second question, would an after market radiator even make any kind of a difference as to keeping the operating temp lower? (I'm guessing not due to the fact the thermostat would still be opening at the same temp) although a larger radiator surely cools quicker. Any suggestions would be great as to stay stock or to upgrade

The reason I'm asking is, the nose of my rzr met the other side of a wash out before the front tires did resulting in a couple of punctures. Only two rows of fins were effected, which I fixed the next morning with a layer of jb weld covered by a layer of quick steel. Worked great and everything works as it should, but I don't want to have to rely on it as a permanent fix. So, I guess the main question at hand is do I have to stay stock to avoid any loss of warranty?

Legally, an aftermarket part isn't supposed to void a warranty unless they can prove it was directly related to the failure. That being said, some dealers and manufacturers will look for any reason not to cover a repair, and unless you have the resources to fight it, they get away with it.

A bigger radiator alone won't really help an engine stay cooler if the temperature is already running within factory specs with a good condition factory radiator. If you have added power or are experiencing high temperatures due to climate or other modifications, that's a different story and a bigger radiator could help.

Good to know. Because it seems that an aftermarket one is way cheaper than the one the dealer quoted me for
