I hit 263 Km/h

For me - no problem to ride 180 Km/h all day without the ugly small fairing when the wind within the standart.

according to 2 different GPS' I tried, no. At 120km/h it appears to be out by 6km/h.

I hope an after market co will come up with a decent small fairing , style like the S4R .
I'd love to create an attractive, functional small fairing for the 821/1200 Monsters and I have the wherewithal to do it, but after my sales experience with bellypans, I'm reluctant to invest the needed capital for tools.

How is the belly pan in regards to ground clearance? Does it touch down?

The 1200 bellypan is designed for the standard exhaust header and normal road riding. I have one on my 1200 and rode some 1000 miles last year in the SE Ohio twisties with no scraping. From some work I did last year with Ducati NA, it will scrape on the RH side if you get to a 46 degree lean angle, an amount usually only attainable at a track day, where we suggest you remove the pan.

Riding on the tail of an R1 to 145 mph_ he slowed down just when I was just about to shift to 4th...She's a 1200 and is really fast. She jumps up to 120 in flash so I'd say she could reach the governor at 186 pretty easily. 145 without a windshield is fast enough. Cuts through traffic in LA perfectly and the engine breaking keeps you in control. Wheelies if you want them, I like the 6" poor wheelies the best and can get those in the first three gears. Down shifting is music to year years - a little snap crackle pop. Get one!

FWIW, 186...downhill in a hurricane drafting a semi maybe.

Aerodynamic drag on a unfaired biked is...a drag. Reason fairings exist in the first place.

At 145km/h the wind feels like it's going to rip my head off! I can't imagine 145mph!

I should have listened and took mine off....
Then again, this was at a track (Grattan raceway here in Michigan) that has some off camber and slight crests on a few turns that caused the belly pan to scrape.

At another track, it comes close, but a knee or a peg was touching and it never did.

It's the white oval spot about middle of the belly pan
