Unfortunately I can relate to the 鈥渏ust works鈥 comment. I just came from a BMW that would have more than qualified for lemon law criteria if lemon laws applied to motorcycles in Florida.

beautiful new bike. Congrats
I had the same issues on my Triumph with the 1200 triple - 2nd gear **** the bed at 2k miles and it took the threat of a lemon law to get it the part in 30 days -vs- 3+ months they told me originally.

Yikes. The BMW dealer had my R9t for 2 months during attempts two and three to fix an oil leak. I only had the bike for one hour before bringing it back to them for the same issue. When I called for an update the following week the service manager had the nerve to say 鈥渋t only leaks when you ride it鈥. I wanted to say oh is that all 馃槀 I guess they didn鈥檛 bother to actually test ride the bike after having it for a month to make sure it was right. Then it took another month to actually fix it. Terrible ownership experience. Hoping for much better reliability out of the GSXS

Nice鈥. Reminds me when mine was all one colour 馃槀 Still a good looking bike. The solid colours are easier to play about with being a blank canvas鈥. View attachment 49742 View attachment 49743
Where did you get the belly cover. Looks nice.
Also. The carbon fibre exhaust protection, came with the SC. Think it's possible to but it separately..?
Nice mods man.
Got Scorpion slip on.. and the carbon engine covers so far, and rizoma corza led.

Waiting for the rear and front fender carbon.

Cheers dude鈥 The bellypan is an OE Suzuki item but from the earlier model, fits straight on as long as you use the same 4 brackets from the earlier bike to. You can use your original brackets if your willing to modify them slightly. Plus reroute coolant overflow pipe on the right hand side. Still shocked that Suzuki never used the earlier type rather than a half arsed beauty panel thats the same as the Katana! And really doesn鈥檛 even resemble a bellypan.

The SC project isn鈥檛 cheap and comes complete with the Carbon guard. Build quality is exceptional even if it is still a little on the quiet side. I鈥檝e removed the reducer and some of the packaging to give it some more pep without being obnoxious. And also flattened the carbon guard with 1200 wet and dry so it looks more like satin/matt carbon Was way to shiny for my liking. Its now the same finish as the end can. Not sure if the measurements would stack up if you just wanted the carbon guard. it would work if you were prepared to make some adjustments. I Still liked my old cobbled together Carbon shorty, even if it was a tad bit louder

If I used the earlier model bellypan and brackets. Would I still need to reroute the coolant lines or make any other modifications?

only routing the expansion tank overflow so it clips in to the new bellypan. Nothing major! I also used a cable tie lower down to make sure nothing comes into contact with the lower part of the headers. Hope that helps

brackets from the earlier bike were used, the later brackets will work but they would need to be modified to fit perfectly. I was lucky enough to get all the hardware still attached to my bellypan so it was a simple transition
