This. I got really lucky once in a similar scenario... was in a bit of a group ride and decided to show my ass a bit and open up the turbo bike in sixth without the lower fairing on.... up near 190mph something felt funny, glanced down at my knees, and the bottom corners of the mid fairing were pulled out about 20" from the radiator (well past the bar ends and my knees). I got damn lucky they didn't just rip off and lacerate the shit outta me or one of my buddies.

A neat take away point from that stupidity was I could actually FEEL the drag it was creating at that speed... it felt nearly like the power loss from melting a piston.... absolute crazyness.

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

So a thread came up about A-Tech belly pans.

Here are some pictures of them on a stock fairing bike.

You guys think that would be beneficial for the mile/1.5? To me it seems like it would hel a bit but I'm a n00b and figured more experienced opinions would be nice to read.

Looks nice.... and it sure can't hurt. :) Though it would honestly be a very slight improvement over stock.

I think it would be more a aesthetic thing more than a performance...

Lets say marginal.

I would put thinner HG and degree the cams, put mr12 and a good tune...
