A customer walked into the shop the other day. I'd not seen him in six years since I left. I'd bought a Suzuki GS550 from him for a former girlfriend to ride. She didn't last but the li'l Soozook is still going on the mean streets of Seattle, last I'd heard.

Anyway, he says he's sold his K1100LT and bought a newer K1300GT, loves it, wonders why he took so long to move up. Then he mentioned some leftover older K parts in his shed he has no need for. One of them was a "three row radiator in good condition" that he'd "picked up along the way just in case", and, "by the way, you can have the new temp switch too". "But I don't know what years or models it'll fit." I told him don't worry about it as I can find a home for them both.

Two days later I had it my hands. It's in good condition, alright. It's been flushed and pressure tested. The switch is new in the bag. I'm not spilling how much I paid him for it. It'll go well in my K100RS in the wicked OZ Summer on some Outback road to nowhere...beyond the black stump.
