Interested x2. How will these fit with Arrow evo full shorty systems? Shopping to Australia?

 At the time this project started the only bikes available to them were the pre-2017 models
I feel certain if this goes well sharkskins will be able to adapt this base model to future models
Having spent most of my life in manufacturing I know it takes longer than we want it too 🤗
everyone just be patient it takes a little while to get the mold to where you want it Im sure they will have something soon for us to look at

Take as long as you need and them some, just get it right :P 
 
Also, you should really offer this in regular black paint.  I know you can't support every color, but at least black goes with everything, grey does not.

It is true black goes with most every color the problem with that suggestion is for those that do want to color match to the bike it takes substantial more prep work
for example someone like me that has the alpine white trying to convert a black color to pure white is more difficult
Just my 0.02

I know we are all very anxious to see some progress pictures! But there is a proprietary process that sharkskinz uses in their manufacturing process when building molds and what not. So i respect the fact that they dont want any pictures of the process. But i will say the belly pan looks much better than the other options on the market. It is shaping up to look like a factory bmw option.  You wont be disappointed i can gaurentee that!

As far as the color. It comes primered so the the end user can paint what ever color
their heart desires.

After the belly pan is complete i will test fit a 2017 to see the differences so we can look into manufacturing it.

Cory will the belly pan be lined inside with that thin metallic heat absorbing shielding like full six carbon and ilmberger have?  Not sure if anyone asked that question.  But if the carbon fiber belly pans have it wouldnt it make sense to have in on plastic ones as well?  Or maybe Im wrong since some fairing parts are also close to the headers and dont melt.

Great question cycler.
That massive cat holds a heap of heat.

But the point is that he is asking for commitments to a group buy.  And showing a picture of a prototype does not show the process. 

At the time this thread started I may have been very interested, but would not have without pics.  But at this point my S1000r is about to be traded, so its now a mute point for me. 

I suspect its going to be a nice product and will sell like hot cakes.  Good luck!

Regarding the heat barrier for the belly pan. I guess for the sub $300 price of the belly pan we can always add it on our own. I would pay $30-$60 extra for the belly pan if it came with it concidering that the adhesive heat barriers sheets cost between $17-$26 depending on the brand and you would need to buy 2 anyway. And use maybe 1 1/2. I have an Austin racing shorty cat delete gpr1 on my 2016 S1000RR. But for some reason the 2015-16 RRs had such a small catalyst converter that you couldnt even tell it was a cat converter and I was running a yosh slip on on it before the austin racing. And even that cat ran and headers ran so hot that the heat barrier lining inside that belly pan is starting to scorch threw it. Im wondering how the austin racing shorty cat delete will heat up. Then again the can is carbon and titanium. But im going to be removing the stock heat barrier and either replacing it with Thermo tec which says its capable of with standing up to 2000f and adhesive withstands 300f. Or get the Designs Engineering which is stiffer and can be molder easily to any shape but withstands up to 1750f and the adhesive to 450f. Im thinking of getting the designs engineering because of the 450f the adhesive goes up to. And the heat barrier on my 1299 panigale is scorched even worse I noticed when I installed the rapid bike last month. So both bikes are getting their heat barriers replaced with a better quality in my opinon. I just sold the arrow competion evo full system on my 2015 s1000R so that bike hasnt had a cat since 2015 and i just installed the 2017 akra headers with the 2017 akra gp can. No cat but if I get the sharkskinz belly pan im going to line it with a heat barrier too.
