Radiator relocation cons?

I know of the benefits to put my 05 brutes radiator on the rack. Any cons other than loss of cargo space? Would I get a lot if heating blowing back on me?

I have not heard anyone complain of a heat issue. Other than loss of front rack space, I see no con's to this mod.

When in waders putting through the woods or out on a bog and the fan turns on you will notice it for sure(when fan's off you dont really notice anything), I usually stop asap and drop the waders around my ankles so I can stop sweating lol. Great in the winter though.

only thing i can think of is if you needed to remove your front plastic, you will have to disconnect hoses and loose coolant.
