I’ve picked up a bellypan from another forum, it was described as rough and I could see from the pictures that it had cracks. I presumed that it was made from fibre glass. On I it arrived I was surprised to see it was plastic with an Aprilia stamp but it had been repaired in a big way using fibre glass, hence the cracking. I can’t find anything on the net relating to a genuine item so I’m wondering it it’s been a chopped up RSV fairing??

Cheers,
Mark

The Falco was never delivered with a bellypan, Pan.

Post up a photo and we can probably identify it for you.

This is how it looked before I started hacking all the fibre glass out.

Hmmm not sure ..... would hate to lead you up the garden path with a mis-identification.
Might be a son-of-frankenstein hybrid made from a couple of bellypans to fit a Falco and the glass-fibre being the stuff that holds it all together. It's not the Mille BP mod that is occasionally done - pioneered by Schlosser - and I think Paddy did one too. I've started one but never finished it!

To be honest its got me a bit confused, I had thought that the numbers below the Aprilia might be a part number but nothing shows up when googled. I'm going to crack on removing all the fibre glass and see what I'm left with, I was thinking of using modified RSV fairing lower as like the way they look being longer and finish closer to the back wheel.
