If you're such an expert and it is so easy, why haven't you just made your own?

Because it's not my business to make fiberglass parts for bikes.

I'm sorry, is asking a professional to do their job too much?

This post was made to stir up interest in a commercial product, which so far, is non-existent.  If they didn't want to entertain inquiries into quality/appearance of the product, they shouldn't have posted.

No it's not your business, yet you proclaim to know how to do it? Put fibreglass and resin in mould. Easy peasy, right! Pass the mould and I'll have a crack. Oh hang on, we need to produce a mould that will fit a range of bikes with different exhausts, rear sets, possibly even both variants of the model first.

You obviously have no appreciation for what goes into making a prototype to a high standard. Its not just asdd fibreglass and resin and click your fingers.
 
You also haven't considered that the business has 100 other things going on for different makes and models too.

And as you haven't paid these professionals anything, is it actually reasonable to expect them to lift a finger to appease you when you whinge and complain?

Talk about a first world problem! "My fibreglass doodad supplier wont jump when I ask them"! Pfft! The sky is not falling. Stop making a mountain out of a mole hill!

According to Cory S, he's already seen it... claiming it is BMW quality.

If he's seen it, they already made it.  If they already made it, why not show what it looks like so you can keep people's interest up instead of having interest die, as it clearly is.

Cory states in the OP "will have pictures soon", 2 months later no pictures... 

They already stated that this bellypan is unlikely to fit 2017 bikes, I've no vested interest in whether this product ever sees the light of day, but it doesn't take a genius to see that interest in this product is dying and even a teaser image would be a simple step to increasing interest.

Here you go

Nice, that looks great, you're going to have it painted white, I assume?

For how long they had your bike, I'm hoping you got that one for free? :)

Bummer that it definitely looks unlikely to fit a 2017 bike.
