Performance Series Louvered Black Powdercoated 2-piece Belly Pan sets the standard in style and protection for the Honda GL1800 Gold Wing. Powdercoated black steel design offers far more impact resistance than aluminum pans. Front section easily detaches with aircraft quality Dzus® Fasteners, allowing for easy removal when changing your oil.
Protects fragile exposed engine case and plastic coolant tank underneath from harmful road debris. Vented louvers provide more air flow to your powerful engine, while adding an impressive look underneath your bike.
Note: Belly Pans have Sharp Edges, PLEASE use protective gloves when installing.
This product is a black powder coated belly pan that comes to you in two pieces. The larger piece gets mounted to the rear and a smaller piece gets mounted towards the front and allows easy access (removable) to the oil filter. The front is held in place with (apparently) aircraft grade twist nuts that capture a wire after a half turn or so, which will make removal and re-installation simple.
I was dreading the installation of this pan as I read many stories on the net about how difficult it can be to get a belly pan on your GL1800. This one was E A S Y.
Put you bike on the center stand to make all areas accessible. Remove the two acorn nuts on the exhaust pipe cover plate (name? heat shield?), pull the cover away from the bolts that are (fixed) in place and slide the belly pan in over those bolts. Then get the acorn nuts started a bit to help hold the pan in position. The pan will flex a bit to allow placement over the bolts on the opposite side. Acorn nuts on that side and tighten all 4 acorns up.
All in all (including time to figure out how to install, this job took about 1/2 hour and was simple.
I just installed it, so I cannot report on its ability to protect the lower part of my engine, but it's there and WILL protect against most strikes IMHO.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
