Bmxr,

Nice Pix.

I was wondering about your belly pan. Where did you come up with that? Is it a requirement for the roadracing scene?

I have been tempted to try a couple track days at some of the shorter local roadrace courses to see if I can improve my cornering speed a little. I have heard that some require those bellypans, but didn't know where to look, or if I could just strap on a rectangular plastic oil drain pan.

Thanks
Colin

If you are required to run a belly pan, you will probably not be allowed to use a cheap foil pan or a plastic one. Tech might pass you , but I figure that "if you're going to do something, might as well do it right". I use a heavy guage 9x13 baking pan, three hose clamps, and some hose wrapped around the frame on the sides and the motor mount in the front so the clamps aren't mounted metal-to-metal. It works better than those hokey carbon lids with maxi pads glued inside, costs about $10, and can be purchased almost anywhere. Side benefit is that you can then still use a conventional motocross type stand to get both wheels off the ground at the same time:

Great pic's man, looks like you are going pretty hard!
I'm hoping to do the same once I get the ol' girl running a bit better so I'll remember the baking pan trick, that's a good 'un.

Do you use maxi pads glued inside, or do the carbon ones come with the maxi's? If the second, do you use anything for absorption / is that usually required?

Thanks again.

There is no requirement for "absorbtion" in any rule book I have ever read, but I sure haven't read them all I understand that they may be required to "contain" a certain volume of liquid. Hell, I don't know, really, but in CCS, it says:
[i]"5.2.23 All 4-stroke machines must be equipped with a fluid catch pan of sufficient size
and heat-resistant material to contain the contents of the crankcases in the event of
an engine or crankcase failure. Minimum capacity of the fluid catch pan is to be 3
quarts.
A. Enlargement and/or modification of an OEM fairing lower is permitted to attain
the necessary fluid retention
B. Machines not equipped with a lower OEM fairing may install a fairing in order to
comply with this rule as long as it meets the minimum requirements in Section
5.2.11 of the rules.
C. A maximum of two holes, 1" or smaller in diameter, may be drilled in the fluid
catch pan. These holes are to be plugged during dry conditions, and may be opened
only when the event is declared “wetâ€
