How to Install the Fullsix Carbon Fiber Belly Pan | Motomillion
Fullsix Carbon Fiber Belly Pan How-To
You’ve got your belly pan, that finishing piece that can bring an entire build together. Now you’ve got to install it. We are here to help.
First things first, we will be dealing with T25 bolts, so grab the necessary driver.
Removing the Side Panel
To start, you will notice that 7 bolts are what hold the OEM panel in place. 5 of them are easily seen and removed from the exterior, and the remaining 2 are behind the wheel, where your radiator guard should be.
Remove these and take note of which bolts go where.
Once you complete this on both sides, you can go ahead and remove the side panel. Before putting it away, make sure to grab the clips on the inner tabs and the grommets found on each side, and transfer them onto your new Fullsix carbon fiber belly pan. (Do not force the clips into the tabs, as this can break the tabs).
Installing the Fullsix Carbon Fiber Belly Pan
With the OEM side panel removed, and the clips & grommets transferred onto the carbon belly pan, we can start working on getting it on the bike. First, we will install the side-slats, not completely, but we have to put them in place so that we can properly mount the belly pan. In the rear of the side-slats you’ll see the part number that will let you know which is the left and right (the final letter in the part number will either be L or R).
Make sure that you’re using the correct bolts, there will be short-neck bolts, medium-neck bolts, and long-neck bolts. For the side-slats, you will be using the short-neck bolts. With the bolt in-hand, go ahead and install the side-slat. You can see the placement in the image below. Do not fully tighten them, as adjustments will need to be made once the carbon belly pan goes on.
Now, you’re ready to install the carbon fiber belly pan. For this part, a helping set of hands may help. Slide the belly pan under the bike and position it in place. The engine spoiler in front of the radiator guard needs to be behind the belly pan, and the upper belly pan should be in the correct positioning behind the spoiler.
Go ahead and make sure everything is fitting into place, and you can start bolting it on. Start by grabbing one of the long-neck bolts, and insert it through the back grommet. Do the same on both sides and leave them hand-tight. Now that the carbon fiber belly pan is being held on at one end, you can line up all the holes.
Long-necked bolts go wherever there is a grommet, medium-neck bolts are used for the top tabs of the belly pan (that go behind the front spoiler), and the short-neck bolts are used for the lower tab.
You’ll be bolting down the side-slats now. You can hold it with your hand to get the correct positioning of it. On the upper end of it, there will be a tab that needs to be in place so that it can line up correctly.
Now if you’d like, you can add your stickers to the Fullsix Carbon Fiber Belly Pan to finish it off. All that’s left is to wipe it down of any finger smudges, and admire the beautiful new addition to your bike!
