Well feels like an age (1 week) but my X11 was delivered this morning :)  and the weather is crap.. :(

 

post-1939-0-98528000-1424262405_thumb.jpg

 

So had a good look round and it needs some additions.

 

Ive looked on the site but some of the links to other sites no longer work so.................

 

Can anyone recommend a rear hugger and bellyan. As  for the bellypan I prefer the longer look.

 

Also any preference on crash bobbins ?

 

Much appreciated

Hi Martin..Nice looking bike..I always use pyramid huggers.They are dead

easy to fit .Fit nice and close around the tyre(looks hard) and they fit beneath

the two brake pipe locating brackets on the right of the swingarm.They are also

of a decent size to deflect most of the crap off the rear shock.I think that they come

in black or carbon look £80. or £90 ish..

   Cant help with the bellypan.I had one on my bike ,but I managed to crack it riding down a kerb

so I removed it and threw it away.I prefer the look of the downpipes anyway.

 I can recommend a product called optiglanze to clean downpipes and bring them up to a silvery finish

check out some of my posts.

 Picture of one fitted to an old blackbird..

  

 

Cheers

Andy

Since changing my standard exhausts to Delkevic Stubbies, I have removed the belly pan shown here http://www.hondax11.com/ips/index.php?/gallery/image/1199-april-2005-x11-rebuilt-looking-good/ as one of the side fixings is to a bolt which is part of the standard exhaust.

 

It is fibreglass and painted black, but if you like it and want to make a sensible offer it could be yours.

Cheers Mick, The red is slightly darker (not much) than the rest of the bike but that just makes me want to spray the rest.  :)

^ True, decals are under the clear coat and if you dont use them your bike will look like someone has fixed smashed bike.

Hi,

 

Did you remove rear tire to fit the hugger?

Hugger installed finally.

I bit of work to align it so that it wont touch the rear tire and then do the drillings for screw holes.

Looks great, well done, and It will keep a lot of muck away from the rear shock. Win-win.

Thanks!

The distance between tire and hugger is minimal. I couldn't fit it any further away. I hope that tire wont catch up any bigger stones which could damage the hugger.
