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.
I know this installation can seem very tough. I tried once and gave up on it, the side cover won't budge and the only solution I thought of was cutting V groves.
Today I gave it a second try, took out the two bolts on the side and the front cowl screw also, pulled the side cover out with a constant pressure and a few firm jerks, it slid of the bolts enough for me to slide the cover over the bolts. Did the same thing on the other side.
The trick is to pull the cover out giving constant jerks while pulling with firm pressure.
Very good product.
Look for pans that have slots in the mounting holes. You have to unpost the 4 cap screws holding the heat shields. Then pull the heat shields out about 3/4 in to get this thing under them. This pan pushed the heat shields out when I was Re assembling. I had to keep very firm pressure on the heat shields to get enough of the mounting bolt threads to get a hold on. This ten minute job took a very frustrating hour or so.
This pan was easy enough to install and it gives me piece of mind. I put it on my Wing before a 3000 mile trip to Canada and was very glad that I did. Not that I hit anything that may have screwed the engine up, but the potential was there. I had to ride more than a few miles on some dirt road with fairly large (1" +) pieces of gravel on road that were undergoing repaving and the odd dirt road or two.
I also like the fact that the pan is vented to allow air to circulate on the lower crankcase better than the unvented pans. I am sure this pan is not sturdier than the diamond plated pan, but again, I liked the venting. If the thing gets damaged by an debris, it will be replaced right away, diamond plate or not.
Seems well engineered and made. Install was straightforward and took all of 20 minutes. Fit is good. The front piece covering the oil filter and drain plug is good and snug. No rattles noted. Bike seems a little quieter at highway speed - could be my imagination! The pan should protect against most typical road hazards. Cheap insurance!
I purchased this pan for the protection it will provide to the items under the Wing. Installation was bit tricky, but not too difficult. It is not a plug and play piece of hardware, that's for certain. It was a challenge getting it to fit over all four studs. I am look forward to seeing how it performs in terms of protection. The one thing that really concerns me is that it is pressed against the exhaust on the left side of the bike. I don't think this is a good thing. I would like to see some space between the pan and the exhaust.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
