This is a very simple How-To install of the belly pan from Kink of soap.
1[SUP]st[/SUP])you want to drill the holes with ¼ drill bit, you can see dimples where they go in the pan.
2[SUP]nd[/SUP])mount the bracket on the exhaust hanger but only get it finger tight.
3[SUP]rd[/SUP])get the long spacer and washer/bolt ready, then remove the bolt holding the sensor cover of the right side of the engine.
4[SUP]th[/SUP])then bolt up the right side of the bike first, just getting the bolts finger tight. but still pretty loose so the pan just hands there freely.
5[SUP]th[/SUP])then install the bracket on the left side of the engine where shown in the picture. again finger tight, but still loose.
6[SUP]th[/SUP])get the small spacer and bolt/washer ready. and then remove the bottom bolt on the left side cam cover as shown.
7[SUP]th[/SUP])then Slowly lift up on the belly pan, it will be stiff, but it will not break,Then install the spacer/bolt on the cam cover, finger tight and then instal lthe bracket bolt/washer.
8[SUP]th[/SUP])now tighten up the front right/left cam covers first and then both bracket bolts at the pan, then tight the brackets to the engine/exhaust.

Here are some tips.

the inside of the belly pan will rest agaisnt the exhuast pipe heat shield, about an inch of the shield will make contact. that's why it can seem hard to get in place.
So I lined the inside of the belly pan, on the exhaust side with this alum. tape.

Aluminum Foil Tape : Conductive Adhesive Tape: Foil Insulation Tape

That part will get hot, but not enough to melt it. that's probably why they made it out of fiberglass to with stand the heat of the exhaust and engine.
