I that 1300 in the Japanese Bōsōzoku style? That "chin spoiler" is called a belly pan here in the UK


The first thing that came to min mind was - bosozoku! That's exactly what they do. I guess the headlight raised a couple feet wouldn't pass the MOT, but the striping suggest the theme.

I've never heard of a 'chin spoiler' before, even talking to the guys in the USA. Just did a quick search and on Canadian sites they sell a 'belly pan'. But hey, Canada is British, and I live in British Columbia. I'm surprised people don't drive lorries here and take out rubbish. And British Columbia is sort of California wanna bee, the Hollywood North, so it's kind of like one food in the UK and the other in the USA, and I live in the middle.

Building an engine from random parts. This will eventually morph into building a bike from random parts - if it ever happens. Need a frame to begin with.

Just did a quick search again for 'motorcycle belly pan canada' and 'motorcycle chin spoiler canada'.

For belly pan lots of images for Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha etc. For chin spoiler mostly Harley Davidson. Belly pans mostly triangular at the bottom in front of the engine. Chin spoilers many extending up to the top, hence the word 'chin'? Perhaps the names come with a territory? That's my superficial impression. I've never owned a Harley so perhaps that's why I'm not familiar. Maybe it's the California bike scene.

Been out in the shop all day/evening the last several days so just catching up...

Sorry for starting the Chin Spoiler/Belly Pan debate!

What I really like about this "Belly Pan" is that it appears to be one piece that also wraps the radiator. Looks a lot more factory than an other that I have seen.

Would that be this fairing? I love this one, but the bars are probably a bit low for this old body I'm toting around.

Being Texan, I can't help adding add fuel to the fire...

A belly pan is a pan that goes under the engine. Some racing requires them to contain oil from a frag'd motor.

A chin spoiler is an aerodynamic item that goes on the chin.

Air Tech www.airtech-streamlining.com shows it clearly....
