Early this spring I debated for some time, and read the various threads of the advantages/usefullness of the tulsa belly pan for my "05 Wing. I did purchase one and Well, I can't say I've noticed any help in the wind, and it slightely makes the engine a little "tinney" but this week it more than payed for itself when something on the road flew up and struck the belly pan hard enough to break the clip and dent the shield all to heck. (came off a semi I was in process of passsing) Price to repair? One cheap clip and 2 minutes with a hammer. No damage to the bike (or me). Did not even have to repair it on the road. Checked it out and kept driving. Yup, gotta recommend it ! I have not noticed any other pros and cons, so it was well worth the $60 or so dollars, in my opinion. - just FYI to those interested.
