Default ER6n bellypan

I've seen a few Versys with different bellypans fitted (or exhaust covers, as Kawasaki call it) and quite fancied a change myself. I was never a big fan of the oe exhaust/engine shrouds and decided that probably the easiest (and cheapest) route was to buy the one fitted to the ER6n (naked) Kawasaki. So it arrived today and it is on, but does need a little bit of work with my Dremel as the gear change is fowling the top rear corner. The ER6 doesn't use the same linkage set-up, so I don't see any other way of altering it. Anyway, here's what it looks like.





Personally, I love how it looks.

Yeah that looks very smart. Is it and after market one? Do you need to get ER mounts? I really like that look.

Genuine Kawasaki parts. You need to buy both brackets that fit onto the sump and the bellypan. Here's a link for the part numbers.

It worked out cheaper to buy the Kawasaki parts compared to any of the aftermarket manufacturers I've seen.

I went with the twinshack bellypan. Little wider, little longer, I'm sure its a little more costly too but compliments the bottom nicely.

I actually like the way that the downpipes are more exposed now. Those bendy snakes of metal deserve to be shown off much more IMO.

I'd say more than a "dash" of OCD

Do these cowlings interfere with oil filter changes?

Mine does, 5 screws has to be removed ,but since the holes line up perfectly it's not that big of a deal.
