    I have heard of a few of them that leaked, but they were salt water riders and didn't flush like they were supposed to. They can be fixed by a competent radiator shop.

    Elliott,

    Just find the right radiator guy. The stock one will work better in the shallow water we ride in anyway.

    Is the aftermarket IC sensetive to shallow waters?

    Boosted,

    They sure are. They get clogged and fill up with sand and weeds. Hi temp light goes off and you loose performance.
