I am warming to the looks of the Dragster belly pan as it should be an easy add-on to my B800. I know Ackers is thinking along these lines as well.

Anybody able to cost the MV Dragster belly pan yet, or are there any other after market alternatives I have not heard of yey?

My dealer told me they should have part prices soon for the Dragster so they'll let me know.

Heard the belly pan screws onto a fitment that is on the manifold so some fabrication may be needed to make it fit ours? (Although I'd think a jubilee clip with a flat headed bolt facing outward through it and a nut should suffice?)

Seen a few aftermarket ones but they either look too big or a bit "Bandit Streetfighter" to me, the best I've seen is the Dragster one?

Right hand side of the bike. Looks like a clamp on the exhaust.
I can't imagine these parts to be expensive

It's just what I read here:

I would expect it to be some sort of clamp too as that keeps all the common parts......well common and universal? ;)
I'll hear soon from the dealer when the breakdown service diagrams and parts lists are available and I'll let you all know (probably won't be cheap though?)

Some good pics there guys, still leaning towards the Dragster one, the others see a little bulky or clumsy. As for price I am sure the Dragster one will not be cheap but at least it being pressed aluminium it should not have heat/paint issues.

Carbon

Dragster in carbon fibre me thinks.
Functional and discrete.:popcorn:

I like a bit of carbon but as a belly pan? I am afraid it is a non-starter for me for two main reasons.

Heat from the down pipes and cat would soon discolour the gloss finish even with heat reflective pads and wraps, and second the belly pan would be in line for pebble dashing from road muck and end up looking like it had been shot with a twelve bore.

It will look a bit like this. :bawling:


But you can put plastic over it. I'm going to put plastic underneath my bike to. They like to discourage motorcycle riding here once in a while by throwing gravel all over the road. :thewife:

Don't worry the dragster belly pan is in two parts with a nice big gap down the middle so your engine and down pipes will still take the brunt of the crap thrown up :laughing:

JimboF4, mate had a carbon fibre belly pan on a Honda VTR naked.
Even dirty the thing looked good.
No issues being that close to the exhaust.
I would like the functionality of it in keeping the muck off the bottom of the engine and pipes.

That's not so bad at all. The original front two clips would be handy though. Maybe get some fasteners for the collector since i'm no welder. :)

Thanks for that Chrisj, the rear connections are as the Brutale and at the front those brackets obviously clamp to the down pipes some how?

Lacsap - those on the collector are already there on the Brutale, currently used to hold on a small polished aluminium cover :)

Great pics Chrisj.
While the standard colour doesn't float my boat, I could be tempted by carbon fibre. Sure hope the extra mounting brackets will be included.
:yo:
