This seems like a good deal for the money, however the front portion of the pan fits even worse than it shows in the picture. It does not line up with main pan at all and is very noticible. I just left the fron portion off.....
As the description says the edges are very sharp.....By the time I finished the install I had two cuts on my fingers. Very easy to install. Just wear a pair of gloves. Cant say that I can tell a difference in handling, but I am sure it will protect the underside of the bike as advertised.
I received the belly pan this week and installed it. Doesn't seem to make much difference with wind buffeting but it will serve the purpose for which I bought it and that is to protect the underside of my bike. I read one review from a gentleman that said he was 150 lbs. and couldn't get his bike on the center stand. I am 141 and have no trouble. Go to youtube and type goldwing center stand. There is a very helpful video.
After a 9000 km round trip--Canada to Galveston & Texas Hill Country--this belly pan earned itself a 10 star rating!!!! Many rocks and other debris were heard pinging the belly pan, telling me the pan protected the fragile parts under the bike, including the plastic coolant tank. Well worth the 70 bucks and easy to install. Should be standard equipment from the factory, but big thanks to WingStuff for offering it after-market.
I am giving a second review after more than a year and a half and over 16,000 miles.
This product is a very good product and has protected the underneath of my bike many times. It allows easy access to the oil changes. *****
I purchased this product,about 3 Wks. ago..The shipping was fast,and product arrived in perfect condition..for two Wks.,after having the part,,I just wondered,if I would really have to put my 1800 goldwing/2010,up on the center kick stand,..The 1800 is a heavy bike..And I'm 155 Lbs..But anyway,besides it being impossiable,for me to get it on the center stand,without jacking it up to position..That was my hold up,of putting this part on...So I figured I would attempt it,just with the bike on it's side stand...And after a little manipulation,the pan went into position,really kinda simple..Remove the plastic coating/shipping coating from the product,before installing...Also,U wont find a grommet,the size to fit for the hole in the belly pan to accomadate the drain hoses..What I did was,,Got a kitchen sink stopper..The kind used in a reg.,dish washing sink..I took it off and it fits right into the hole on the belly pan,,and next,U JB WELD around both sides of the stopper,let dry over night,and then,next day,use a utility knife and cut the center out of the piece so both Ur hoses will fit right through it..Without some kind of protection,I think the hoses could be damaged..Just wanted to inform,evyone who has not purchased this product for Ur bike,,Man U really should..It's an EZ product to install,yourself and sure seems like a product that will protect the undercarriage of Ur BIKE or TRIKE..I've put mine on before I'm gonna trike it..So,NO,U dont have to put the bike on the center stand to install this product..
Evy1 PEACE UP AND STAY SAFE ON THE ROADS
Excellent item, but rattles at the front section. I replaced one that was there and it has kept the engine cooler, it has as did the last one saved damage to the under neath would not ride without one must have should be a standard item on every wing. This also gives better handling when side winds or truck hit the bike.
This is the second belly pan that I have installed on a wing. This one is a really good one. The hardware makes installation a breeze. There is no doubt that the material of construction will take the hits and save vulnerable parts. And the air venting is a good touch. I wonder why Honda has not closed this gap from the factory.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
