    Carbonvice belly pan

    I've got a race version Carbonvice belly pan on the way & wondering if anyone who's got one installed has had any issues with them warping / melting etc. due to heat off the headers?
    My Wife raised this question to me, replied, "Supposedly comes with some insulation for protection". Damned if I know??   
    Looking at them anticipating a small amount of clearance. 
    Using a full Black Widow system, just have to see how it fits. 

    Info appreciated  :028:

    I put some aluminum heat reflective tape on the inside of my Puig replica bellypan, but I don't know if it is really useful  :008:

    Think it comes with that heat insulation that looks like tin foil, though donít know if itís pre installed or if you have to fit it yourself. Same stuff is used on the inside of fairings on sport bikes and they hold their shape. Friends bike has got an under tail exhaust that uses the same stuff too, so must work ok or his tail plastics would have melted.

    I do have a roll of silver foil tape for doing heat duct repairs, see what it comes with and maybe add more if it's the same + needed.

    My ZXR kit came with no heat shielding, and that would not have been good. Iíll take a pic of mine with it added when I think on, but safe to say you want some.

    You dont have to worry about insulation. I have CarbonVice on my 2020 Z900. Clearance on the header will be tight. You might have to shave alittle which I did on mine to avoid contact. Mine is approximately 3mm away and no heat issues at all. Carbonvice for the win!!

    Thanks for the info, last tracking update it was handed over at an airport & hopefully made it to the US, no further details.
