A Must Have
Replaced an older aluminum belly pan with this stainless steel and was very impressed with the sturdiness of the SS. The old aluminum pan had a large hole in it from a large rock kicked up by the front wheel. Would recommend SS over the aluminum. If you don't file the edges, wear gloves when installing and be sure to take off ALL the protective covering on both sides. As mentioned earlier, these belly pans have slots (holes) rather than notches, so the installation bots must be removed to bolt them on. Removal and installation took less than 30 minutes. No problems with rattling, as earlier posters have noted.
Some say a belly pan helps with stabalization of the bike with cross winds on the highway. I can't address that issue, as I've always ridden with the pan installed.
