Quick question:

So in the rule book it says the belly pan, if part of the fairing can only be fiberglass, plastic, or carbon fiber. I thought you could use a turkey pan (which is aluminum right?) wired on the bottom? I've partially crafted an aluminum pan on the bottom of my fairing, and I'm wondering if I should go ahead and finish it or make a fiberglass substitute.

I think you are combining two separate rules. Yes, fairings must be made out of what you mention, but there is a separate section on belly pans. And yes, you can use a turkey pan if it meets the requirements of section 5.2.20. I just don't want it flying off and hitting me in the face so make sure it's very securely mounted. :)

8 1/8th inch aircraft aluminum rivets with washers, shouldn't be going anywhere :)

Actually I would rather get hit in the face with a turkey pan than that! :)

Just glad to have my bike 90% done for this season, it's been two years getting it running and fabricated, here's a sneak peek, Yamaha tz250 fairings and a Moriwaki seat, since finished all the paint. Don't worry I plan on ruining all that hard work in the second corner. Image
