    Belly Pan Recommendation

    Afternoon,

    I was wondering whether anyone could recommend a belly pan for the CR please?

    I really want to keep the muck off the metal because I'm spending hours every week cleaning the bike at the moment.

    I've seen this;
    http://www.pyramid-plastics.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=3371

    It doesn't look too bad, but I have absolutely no idea if it'll help.

    Cheers,
    Mars Bar.

    Front fender extender.  Keeps the muck down.  Muck just gets behind plastics.
    Top tip
    Wash bike in wash n wax. Rinse.  Then using a plant sprayer trigger gun spray a strong solution of wash n wax and gently hose off again.
    Muck doesn't stick half as bad.

    Thats about the only belly pan on the market....I was thinking of purchasing one and painting it red as well as the rad guards....I have been looking for a pic of one already done but not seen one as yet.....
    I am in process of painting side wind deflectors and rear hugger the same colour as the bike. I will be fitting the new painted bits tomorrow...I shall take some pics once fitted....

    Cheers Paul.
    I have a fender extender and it helps a bit.

    Thanks for the tip regarding the sprayer. Sounds like it's worth a try.

    Does anyone use the winterising spray-on products? I keep meaning to research them to see what they're all about.

    Cheers,

    Regularly sprays with duck oil.  Ive tried the acf 50.  It works but is expensive.   You can get 5 litre of duck oil for 25 pound.  Needs regularly applying but you can then see where its come off.
    Spraying with wd40 regularly also works well.

    I have fitted the Puig belly pan...Looks good. I was going to paint it red but thought better of it in the end...Fitting takes ten minutes

    Yep.  I find it odd that Pyramid Plastics is selling it though, but it could well be the norm.

    I fitted the pyramid plastics hugger over Christmas.  I got it for £95 inv delivery from eBay.  Generally I'm happy with it, but it feels a little flimsy.  Hopefully it'll be OK on bumpy and/or fast roads.
