I have a 1980 CX500 Custom that I’m doing a little cafe build on, and the radiator seems to be leaking. I was wondering if the radiators on the normal CX500 and Custom are the same?

The rads are the same between standard 500s, 500Cs and Ds IF the standard has a metal rad shroud.

Those with a plastic shroud have the shroud mounting holes lined up down the centre of the side of the rad, the metal shroud rads have them offset to the front.

Otherwise they interchange if you will not be running the shroud.

Before considering replacement.....

Is there a local radiator shop that could handle the repair? If so, they would probably clean it, repair and repaint it. It would be nearly like a new radiator. Then no concerns about fitment.

The replacement may or may not be plugged or leak or have other issues........
