    Melted radiator ‘02 TL1000r

    So recently while stuck in traffic I noticed my bike started “smoking”. Upon closer inspection I found that coolant had blown all over the fairings and was causing the smoke from the front of the bike. I took the front fairing panel off and noticed that my radiator was touching the header and had melted. What would cause the radiator to shift far enough back for this to happen? The bike has been garage kept and only has 4K miles with no damage. -06aa8bca-6cbb-4de3-aa18-17623349ab54.jpeg

    Sorry for the bad pic but it’s hard to get a good angle on it.
