SW Motech Engine Guards w/ Yamaha Bellypan

I just installed the SW Motech engine guards with the Yamaha bellypan. A decent bit of cutting was required, but in the end I think it looks great. I've since gotten longer bolts and mounted the Uncaged frame sliders to the guards.

I could have gotten the Givi guards and mounted them without cutting but they don't connect the left/right halves together like the Motechs and did not look as stout.

Damn nice cut job! That looks great and as if it were intended to fit like that!

I'd say that's a one off. Not sure you could ask for a better look and fit!

Thanks guys! I used a dremel and a dry erase. With the bars mounted it was easy to use the dry erase to trace on the bellypan.

The next step will be to sand down any rough edges and put on some touch up paint. The bellyplan plastic is white and the bars hide most of the cuts but you can see a little bit from certain angles.

SManz I like the way the crash bar looks with the bellypan. I just received that very same crash bar. Can you give me any advice on how to start this install?

SManZ,

Looks nice. What's the hydraulic looking line on the right side of your bike?

Just like frame sliders, install one side at a time so that both engine mount bolts are not removed. Once both sides are in, install the clamp that holds both halves together across the headers. Follow the diagrams that come with the bars exactly and you'll be fine.

It helps to have two people for the long bolt that runs through the rear for the right side bar so that you can tighten the nut while your buddy holds the bolt from the other side of the bike.

It goes down to the oil galley and is connected to a mechanical oil pressure gauge on the handlebar.

The side scoops are not stock. They are an aftermarket part available from Yamaha in the European/Canadian market. I ordered mine through a dealer in Canada and had them ship to me.
