I actually think the belly pan might hurt aero. It has a farly big lip on the back to contain fluids, which would trap the air coming through the headers.

Don't know for sure, but thats what i think.

When i ran the half mile i used my stock fairing, my race seat is also taller than stock, which is a no no.

I highly doubt it, but I would love to test it back to back. Every irregular surface exposed to moving air is a source of drag... the lower half of the bike has A LOT of irregular surfaces that are nicely smoothed out by the presence of a bellypan/lower fairing.

But I do know that without a lower to hold the upper fairing in place that the wind pulls the mid fairing back like a parachute at speeds nearing the double ton.... I've had the tips of my mid fairing pulled nearly 16" out of place before I noticed what was going on..... almost a really bad day.

Attack life... it's going to kill you anyway.

I thought the fairings seem like they'd help a little bit but that is an interesting idea bout it catching more drag on the back of the lip for fluids. If that lip in the back was cut off it seems like the belly pan would be worth it. Maybe?

Also looking around this weekend it seem for a little more than a set of race plastics would cost you can get some head work done from Iceman or another shop I saw had good reviews. Almost wondering if getting some head work and a thin headgasket would be a better 'investment' vs body work.


I'd love to do both but don't know if my soon to be married budget will allow both. Another what would more experienced people do question lol. Kind of leaning towards the head if I know I can afford it and maybe get some valve springs so I could spray it someday and not be as worried but not 100% sure which route to go.

What did you have to do to put the busa front fender on? Did it bolt on or did you have to make custom brackets to bolt it up?

Good luck out at the mile if you haven't raced it yet!

i would think the lower fairing would make a difference. dont have them on the 07, they were not there when purchased. i've seen side fairings with no lower fairing support bow out at high speed and rip off. could be dangerous. i drilled out the lower radiator support bolted to the block, ran a stainless threaded rod thu locked on both sides of radiator support by nut/washers and and right out thru the lower end of the side fairings. secured the fairings with a stainless button head bolt for stability. radiator and fairings secured. looks factory.
