Installed a belly pan, now "bring on the heat". The heat coming radiator is atrocious. I think I will disassemble belly pan. Willing to put up maintenance bill due to rock.
I have a belly pan on my '06. I just returned from a 2300 mile trip to GA, TN, NC, SC and never noticed a difference in heat.Installed a belly pan, now "bring on the heat". The heat coming radiator is atrocious. I think I will disassemble belly pan. Willing to put up maintenance bill due to rock.
It never made a difference on my temp gague.Is the heat effecting the temp gauge?
probably not...(06 and up)Is the heat effecting the temp gauge?
:thumbup::agree:Difference strokes for different folks.....but I recently returned from an 8,200 mile run from Maine to California and back and it didn't affect the radiator heat one bit. And travelling thru high winds on this and other long distance trips I feel the belly pan added to the stability of the Wing.opcorn:
Just my experience for what it's worth. :shrug:
That's an accurate asessment of the Temp Gauge, an idiot light in disguise.probably not...(06 and up)
The GL1800 Temp gauge is not really a gauge
.. don't count on it to move if the bike is merely running
hotter than "normal"..
.. it will not move until the bike is about to boil over
then it will go up suddenly.
It works more like an idiot light disguised as a gauge.
Murphskits.comFor protection for the oil filter, I saw a post by Fred for a heavy duty aluminum cover for the filter.
I ordered it and installed it last night.
It appears that it could stop any rock damage to the filter, and for $24.00, you cant beat it for protection.
Obviously it doesnt do anything for the rest of the undercarrage.
I dont remember where I ordered it, but Freds link was on one of these posts recently.
Maybe Murphs something.....
