Apologies if I've managed to post this twice !

Is there any alternative to the ludicrously priced MG belly pan ?  They are £400 in the UK.

I like the look of them, and presumably they would help keep the oil temp up were I ever mad enough to actually ride my bike in the winter rain, by deflecting water off the sump.

Cheers

If your talking about the ones designed for the GRiSO....... Nope, Shocked  their all kind of pricey.

I wonder if the LeMans chin scoop from Airtech could be adapted to work.  It's only $83.

Or maybe one of the generic, vintage belly pans...

Stucchi make one don't they? I have a customer who has a pan of some sort, I think it was from Stucchi? Personally I think they spoil the lines of the bike but each to their own.

As far as I know, Stucchi makes the only one, it was mis-attributed to MG. It IS spendy, and I agree with Pete regarding the looks. The GRiSO doesn't need to try to look like a Norge, in my opinion either...

I have used a bunch of airtech stuff and it is good, but most of what I got from them was RACE WEIGHT parts. these are thin and light. You used to have to ask them to make street weight parts, these are a little thicker and more durable. the big thing with glass body work is to use rubber mounts if possible and do not stress it much at the install.

Thanks for all the replies.

I think the 'MG' one is the Stucchi one. From the pictures I've seen it was quite unobstrusive, I certainly don't want to clutter the look, but thought I might also have some practical use. At £400 it's no going to happen anyway.

Cheers

No feelings need be hurt, beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

I've done a lot of weird/unique stuff to GRiSOs. Not everyone shared my visions, but I've liked what I did. There is nothing wrong with making a unique motorcycle more unique, except for that gawd awful monstrosity of a saddle that Roper bought. There is no justification in that...

Bite your arse Steve! Very Happy. Its about comfort, not looks. (But having ridden on the damned thing I think its worse than the stocker 99% of the time.)

Really I bought it because I thought it was an option for a future 'Round Oz' trip. I'm fully aware its as ugly as sin but if you are thinking of 18,000 Km in the saddle, which is what *my* sort of trip would involve 'Looks' are secondary.

I also want to do it to lay to rest the reliability reputation of the flat tappet engine! Very Happy I still can't get mine to break!
