chinese replacement radiator - recommendations

Hi,
I have a CBR600RR 2008 and probably i need to replace my radiator.
a new OEM will cost me 360$ + shipping + taxes.
I saw on Ebay there are few known (Arashi, ) and unknown (TCMT) chinese brands, can someone recommend out of his own experience?
I saw also a US company by the name Maneki with good reviews.

You probably don't need to replace your radiator. Your other post doesn't indicate for a second that the radiator requires replacement.

I saw your other post and I see you mention 100*c as the high point of what you see. The fan doesn't even kick on until 220*F, so you're not anywhere close to overheating. I think that's 104-105c right?

IS there any other reason why you are looking for a new radiator? because your temps are fine.

Hi,
of course it heat up to 104 and then the fans start to kick and it is fine.
The problem is that on the highway when driving 100Km/h and more, the temperature goes to 85-95 and a i have this bike for 5 years and it was always at 77-78 .

so what exactly do you think is wrong with the radiator for this to happen? have you done any cooling system maintenance whatsoever to the bike?

I've done cooling system maintenance:
1. Replaced the water
2. Replaced the thermostat

I think some of the tubes inside are blocked.
How else can you explain that the bike not getting cool enough like before ?

Why not do a full flush with radiator cleaner first?

It might also be your water pump.

I've replaced a few radiators on these and I just buy OEM on eBay. Usually less than $100 delivered. May not be an option for you but I've never had any issues.
