I need opinions,
I have an 08 Brute 750i
just bought the triple flow radiator, thinking of leaving my stock radiator
in it's place & running both radiators, sounds like a good idea..
Is it worth leaving the stock radiator on? What should I do? Thanks for any
opinions.

I'm not sure, but would that put too much strain on the water pump?? just an idea...

I'm thinking this would drematically slow the flow of coolant and work against you. Unless you were using some external pump to help with the flow, bypass it & cap it off if you don't want to pull it out, but IMO. your working against yourself

I have to agree with these guys, unless you plan on running some sort of inline electric water pump. Your stock pump cant move that much water fast enough through 2 radiators to cool. Besides your highlifter radiator is well more than enough!

I have to agree with everybody too, even if there wasn't an issue with the stock pump, and there might not be, the thermostat is going to do it's level best to keep the engine's temp in a certian range, even if the incoming coolant is cooler, it won't matter much. Besides the fact that the tripple-flow is more then enough in any situation, I sure wouldn't want all that extra plumbing and risk of issues way out in the middle of nowhere.

Yes , the stock pump is no more than a small impeller on the oil pump shaft. It runs the same speed as the crank.
