ec 300 radiators

Bike started sounding a bit ordinary, thought it was a pipe vibration. Im thinking now it may have been overheating detonation. Im thinking this issue it may have been going on a while but not have been as noticable because i generally only ride in cooler wet weather.
found coolant leaking from the left radiator, i removed the radiator thinking maybe there might be crash damage or the rad guards may have rubbed through. Nope no marks no damage core seems to have split or cracked. Just woundering if any one else has had this problem and has any one tried an aftermarket replacment?

Had it happen on both rads of wr300. Shitty alexon rads. No crash damage or guards rubbing through like yourself they just split a core. One on top & one on bottom from memory. Maybe got too hot & warped or maybe vibration-dunno. Either way was $50 fix at rad shop & came back looking like new(think they acid wash em). They just soldered up/blocked off the offending core. Been fine for past 200-250 hours & no difference to bike running temp.
