Belly pans

Postby Timma04 » Sat Oct 01, 2011 9:33 pm



Can anyone tell me how to get the bottom pans off so I can see where my coolant leak is coming from? I have a GL 1800 - 2004. :?:

ON my 93SE there are three screws on each side bottom and one clamp on the rear each side. Don't know if the 1800 is the same or similar.

As standard the 1800 doesn't have a belly pan, it's just got some plastic trim running around the sides (around the exhaust headers). If you have a belly pan, it has to be an after market item and they usually mount with 4 screws (usually screws that pass the rough the plastic side trims and into the belly pan. If you post a picture we can tell you who made the belly pan and give you more exact instructions on how to remove it.

Your belly pan is a after market add on. it is attached using the four lower acorn nuts that hold the bottom side panels. Take off the nuts. Pull the side panels off the studs and then the belly pan off the stud. do the same for the other side. Just reverse the proceedure to put it all back together.

Thanks - won't have to remove them after all. Found out the 'leak' was actually an overfill at the dealership. Still love my Wing. :D

Not all belly pans are (I guess) the same, since mine has two d'zus fasteners. Was on the bike when I bought it 8-)

Mine too. It is a Tulsa brand, and only the forward section has to be removed for oil and filter changes.

However, to remove it entirely, you only need to loosen the 4 acorn nuts......and wear gloves......those edges are sharp!
