Belly Pan cosmetic question

Post by alfowler7 » Mon Mar 21, 2016 2:18 pm

I'm about to order a belly pan for my 2015 F6B. Almost everything is matte black or blue. I'm looking at this belly pan that they offer on It's polished stainless, so probably a brighter finish than most of my bike. They offer aluminum black pans, that are not as heavy as this one, but I like the idea of more protection. I know it's on the bottom, so rarely visible. My question is, who has this particular belly pan and how shiny is it? Thoughts and comments welcome. ... -belly-pan

This is mine after many many miles so I wouldn't worry about how shinny it is. I like it so much that I'm on my second one. I know that it has saved my reserve tank and probably my oil filter at lest a couple of times when it was used as a skid plate.

I've had my stainless steel pan for several years. It too has taken a beating. I never see it except for when it is off the bike, so I don't care what it looks like. When you get it, grab yourself a file and beer, put on some good music, then go to town filing off the sharp edges. This will save your hands from being cut up when ya have to take it on and off in the future.
