Custom Bellypan Exhaust

Just sent away all metal parts to welder to be joined. Will be getting it back next week to test fit before more welding getting done to it.

Will upload pics when I get it back, currently have bike apart ready to fit DHC airbox and snorkel.

Need to buy some fairings to modify and carbon fibre cover the sides of scilencer when fitted. How does CF behave when in direct contact with hot exhaust?

Direct contact? ouch! I would think carbon be better than plastic or fiberglass but not good enough, Ill bet someone that really knows chimes in, exciting idea, been kicking that idea around in my head but not ready to act. Not even enough to study these belly pan oem pieces. To many other priorities.Think you are going to see flames shoot out of it? I have a 2-1 with a short can and when its cold I have to clear the area to the rear. way to go trying something new, awesome

put some thermotec silver or DEI gold heat reflectant tape on the CF to guard it....I use this on my TT Z and my bike....You can ceramic coat the exhaust too to keep the heat down as well...I highly recommend swain tech in NY....they invented ceramic coating for cars/motorcycles.

Man that is one big hole

I like the heat film. I may have to pick some up, but not a fan of gold.

I was meaning of the belly exhaust. I've see some pretty bad hack jobs done before and hoping to see one finally cleanly done. Not that I want one, but I like to see people trying to do things different. Sometimes they give me ideas to try.

@extrapolator I live in New Plymouth. Only two other RC51 riders within 300+ kms.

@avionicstech direct contact was an idea but looking for alternatives. Just the fact that this is the first prototype. Once basic system is complete and running I can fine tune further exhausts. Smooth em out. Probably try and maintain the noise........

@ogiehooker heat reflective tape is good idea. Should be able to source some from work but sending stuff to the US from New Zealand takes too long to be worth it. May take a few prototypes to get where I want. That heat film looks amazing definitely on my wishlist.

Currently mk1 is running a stock header and pipes into a collecter in front of rear wheel. Very tight spaces ( thanks Honda)
WILL TAKE PICTURES over weekend of first models that I made to scale, too busy this week at work so bikes asleep on lift in garage.

I would love to see how other people did bellypans for the RC51. There is so many things already crammed in that area that my version is "picasso" style. I'll see if I can dig up my first model made of cardboard.
