I'm after a picture of a naked black curvy with lowers fitted (not a bellypan but actual firing lowers). Considering it as i can get my hands on some cheap with the fitting kit and thought it may help keep crud off engine.

If some kind person could mock-up one on photoshop etc i'd be more than grateful .

How would you fit them without the upper fairing ? (they bolt together I beleive)...

Thats right.. I think a belly pan and a fender extender would be a better option...

Already have them both The casings are getting coated in gunk daily. If they HAVE to bolt to upper fairings then i spose i can't fit them anyways ....Unless i could get some brackets made up . Just curious what it would look like

The other problem is that they have a huge void at the front so the dirt would still get on your engine...

Just look at this pic:

Grinch is right, they cover the sides but not the top or bottom. What bellypan are you using? I found the Pyramids one gives a lot of protection. Not perfect, but pretty good.

Powerbronze

Saving for the roca ? one with lights in bottom now that the lowers sound like such a bad idea/loads of work.

Mm, the Powerbronze one mainly looks like a hole with some plastic wrapped around it IIRC, the Pyramids one's like a bath Quite like the Roca one.
