Belly pan

I wanted to put a CBR900 exhaust on my 9er but I want a bellypan to clean the look up. Anyone try this or know if it will work? Who makes a good bellypan?

a REAL pan, fit for a turkey. that's why the salesman said it's PERFECT for me. no problem with cbr900 exhaust clearance: slight grinding only.

Although I think the Tin Man is one of coolest 9ers on the planet I was really going for visual apeal on the bellypan. It does'nt matter if it works good so long as it looks good. Any word on the Tin Mans condition?

i was just kidding anyway. what kind of polack idiot would put a turkey pan under his engine? answer: the same kind that's typing right now.

waiting for a 45 degree mirror for the tip of my new boroscope: no great revelations visible looking straight down at my piston.

#1 & #4 plugs were melted. #4 currently getting oiled, but i found #1 is actually the one that's low on compression by about 30 psi compared to #3 & #4. i didn't bother checking #2 because that plug wasn't damaged and it's a pain to snake the compression tester down there. once i get pix of my bores and valves i'll be posting them here. i'm spending $75 at napa for a tiny little stainless mirror that clips on to the end of the boroscope, including shipping. it rates as one of the least "bang for the buck" purchases i've ever made, but i still don't want to embark on removal/disassembly of the motor until i complete the examination.

i sure hope my brand new tri metal 46 tooth rear sprocket and LOOONG 520 X ring race chain don't wind up on ebay anytime soon...i'd much rather put them to hard use and SOON !

gpz, i'm thinking of going big bore, but i want to just KNOW what's going on inside (by waiting for the borescope mirror attachment) before I commit.

945 or 970 cc?
TBD by the extent of cyl. wall damage

but IF i proceed, i'm going to rely more cautiously on all the experience i've gathered and make a very LARGE, but safely "wet", adjustment to my nitrous/fuel jets.

I got a Powerbronze bellypan off eBay for $135. Whichever bellypan you go with, be sure to torque the attaching bolts to the right torque values. In my case, it was 10 N.m for the oil pan bolts.

Check my earlier thread for more details and pics of my 919 with the Powerbronze bellypan: https://www.wristtwisters.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=12971 . Nowhere near as cool and functional as Bucky's T-giving leftovers, but I think it looks ok.

Ah, memories from the web past...I remember RoadRacing--drop-dead gorgeous, hand-crafted accessories out of Italy. RD is right--a moon rock ain't nuthin'. I was trying to get my hands on their 919 radiator covers (which I ogled on Alexa72's website) a couple years back. Skyking (their main US dealer) was having a heck of a time sourcing any more of their stuff so I even put in a Skype call to RoadRacing in Italy..."Buongiorno! Parla inglese?" Even then they wouldn't sell direct to me (don't tell me it was my feebly brief attempt at speaking Italiano!). It took an inquiry on my behalf by the incomparable Eraldo Ferracci himself to get a quote. $405 (not including shipping) for the rad covers. Yep, I was crazy enough to go for it. But 1-2 weeks got delayed to several months and after a while I knew it wasn't going to happen. I even thought about stopping by on my trip thru Italy this past fall, but their website was shut down by then. Sigh.

Anyhoo, I"m actually happy with my Powerbronze and the rougher look my 919 has taken on. Plus it's way easier on my pocketbook. Riquefied, good luck in your search, let us know what you end up getting and post pics!
