This is just to gauge whether there is interest in a race style belly pan for the 1290. Make your choice.

Edit: I've made it a poll where you can change your mind in case we ever see a design idea for one.

I will get a 1290 at some point in he future and would definitely want a bello pan. Since fitting my 990 with a race one I'm still impressed with how much easier the engine is to keep clean. And I like the way it looks so it's important that it is styled well to be sympathetic with the overall bike styling.

I own a 1290 but a bellypan isn't the first thing I would buy. Sure like the have the option to order/mount a belly pan if I one day want to do it.

I plan on either modifying one from the 1190 ADV to fit or fabricate my own one, if I ever manage to make time...

Something similar to the prototype in high quality prepreg carbon and shit yeah, I'm in.

Edit: would be even better if we can choose weave, and finish (matte or gloss clear, raw etc).

Poll is looking pretty good so far. Most people fell in love with the prototype and the carbon belly pan and exhaust were part of what brought it together so naturally most would be keen on those things.

I really think someone needs to do one to work with the Austin Racing and Akrapovic EVO exhausts.

I would imagine it would be easier to make a actual fluid catching race bellypan for those that require it for track and then a version that doesn't have away of the underneath for those that don't require it to catch fluids. If you are riding just on the roads the last thing you need is a bellypan that fills up with water when its raining.

An important consideration when riding in the UK at the moment.

I'm using the garage for kitchen fitting at the moment so my bike is outside during the day. Wind is so strong the cover keeps blowing off and the belly pan fills up to the brim with rain in about ten minutes!!

First job when it has to come off next is to drill a drain hole and fit a rubber grommet. Not sure why all belly pans don't have this feature, surely they could be made oil tight?

Not sure why (aerodynamics?) but mine have all needed two, front and rear, as one only at the low point doesn't allow the bellypan to drain fully.

Probably not - the lugs that it bolts onto on the front of the oil tank have been machined off on the 1290's tank. You'd have to weld or epoxy some kind of mounting on to the tank.

Evotech seem to have a plan. There website has a listing for engine guard coming soon and if you look at the shot of the radiator guard it has a small bracket that would mount to bellypan nicely.

How the belly pan fits with the Austin Racing GP cans will be interesting. I assume the belly pan will be made to work with the original CAT because there exhaust retains the CAT from the pictures I've seen.

Not sure how to vote but I would say no. I think belly pans are hideous. Even the name is hideous! :)
