SV question

I'm finally buying a new radiator for my 2003 SV 650 and the place I'm buying from (prosourceoutlet) has 2 radiators listed for 2003, K3 and K4. I was told this means 2003 and 2004, but my father says the radiators might be different because they have different numbers somewhere or something(which confuses me because they're both listed for 2003 SV), so I was wondering if any of you could clear this up for me a little. Thanks

I wouldn't think there would be any difference between the two. Motor companies tend to keep parts like that the same for several years to maximize the profit return insted of retooling every year. Theres 2 pennis for ya.

It could be a mid year model change that doesn't reflect a change in the radiator but instead a different part of the bile. It could also indicate a vendor supply change at the factory that doesn't effect the radiator, but only effects who was subcontracted to make it.

IMO, buy one and slap it on.

ok the first generation (99-02)sv radiotor is different than 03+ the only differences in in k3 and up are the where the radiator cap goes, on the o3 there was a hoes that came from the top of the radiator that a plastic piece fit on to, the radiator cap would go on the plastic piece. on 04 and up the cap actually goes on the radiator

The basic difference are between the naked and S models, but either will work on your bike.
