Anyone have one yet? If so which one did you buy? How do you like it? Fit and finish OK? Did it come with instructions and/or mounting hardware?

TIA

I bought one off of ebay from Thailand, i do not have my bike yet. in my opinion the paint finish is a 6/10 and there are some paint chips. the fiberglass is rough on the edges also. it is going to take some work to make it nice...some sanding and maybe a clear coat over the top of the paint. I might end up not using it. I am not that pleased with it. there are no cracks in the fiberglass so that is good some sanding and paint and it will be nice. I just need to get a can of color matched black paint once I can figure out the paint code for the black grom.

All of the hardware came with it but no instructions. I think it will be pretty self explanatory though once I get the bike in hand. I also ordered 2 identical sticker kits from shopitart in Thailand my thought is to use the extra sticker kit to cut and fit stickers for the belly pan to match the bike and also hide the poor paint job.

I will post a build thread once I get my bike - hopefully in the next week or two. I have some big things planned!!!

Well that is very good to hear - about the shipping and service and all. The way you described the belly pan would NOT prevent me from buying it as I figure any one I get will need to be painted.

I order the belly pan from that guy too, but I'm still waiting for it.

TerribleTarans How long did it take to get it? I've been waiting close to 3 weeks for my to come in.

Use caution with the kingkongsoap seller, me and some other members are having trouble getting our stuff.

I want a belly pan but I have to admit I want it just for looks. Does it serve any purpose besides keeping dirt off the engine?

It may push more air up on the cooling fins, but other than that it's just for looks. and I would not order from Kingkongsoap, I would wait for a US vender or tyga to sell one.

I hope somebody makes a belly pan like this for US market but with a tad more coverage. With honda lettering on bottom plez.

I have one coming from Thailand, not from kingkongsoap. I got a tracking number and it has left Thailand. I should see it within a week and he just shipped yesterday. Its a Honda OEM aftermarket part too. Curious to see if the paint matches my white panels. I think he even threw In a free Honda Msx T-shirt.

I think I'll roll my own. I have some sheet aluminum and a slip roll. I used to make aluminum parts (tanks, seat cowls, etc.) to pull molds from years ago. This time I think I'll polish the part and bolt it on

This stupid little bike has my braining turning quite a bit lately. Now I just gotta get off my ass and clean the shop so I can get at everything
