2001 ZR 600 Front Heat Exchanger

Anyone know where is the best place to get a replacement front heat exchanger for a 2001 EFI ZR 600?

This one is riveted to the bottom, towards the front. It was welded by the previous owner and then still leaks. I just want to find a good replacement instead of messing with this one.

Look closer. It is welded to the bulkhead down the sides of the heat exchanger. At the top edge it attaches to the tunnel, but down the sides it is welded. It is also welded across the bottom to the frame assembly. That is unless your sled is a frankenstien that has been butchered by a previous owner. From the factory they were welded and you can't just buy the heat exchanger.

Not available unless you find another chassis and remove it from that chassis. Then you know how it comes out....then try the same with yours. Good luck

All I have left to remove is the engine. Got to give the whole thing a good wash. Figured it would be easiest to get at it if everything else was out of the way. It was welded by the previous owner, but the way it looks, it failed too. I'm a welder and a fabricator for life. So this isn't something I can't do. I wondered how much damage was done to the inside of the heat exchanger and how much restriction it had with the weld job on it. Beings you can't see all that with the ****** weld on it now, I wanted to just get a different one and swap it.

If you cut it out it has to go back in correctly and I advise helium for gas call some scrap yards and see if they will cut one out for you if you do it that way... might not be worth the efforts though

I figured I would check it out good tonight. If it won't come out easily, I will just grind out the weld in the damage area and reweld it myself. I will try to get some pics on here also. I was going to do that last night, but got busy drinking beer instead.
