I know that Wild Hair Accessories sells a few. Here's a link to their Honda 599/Hornet specific parts:

Wild hair is decent but I have some other sites you might want to look into. I've been driving myself crazy looking for accessories, good luck finding stuff stateside though. Oh, and when you order, ask for instructions in English, unless you have a good handle on French and German instructions:

http://intobikes.co.uk/products?bk=3707&bf=1&gf=0

http://superbikestore.com/599_hornet.htm

I've used both and had no problems (other than the instructions which I ignored even after getting the English version). I'm sure you can find more, it just takes a lot of time and patience and playing around with your search words in google.

It originates from the Hornet Cup race series, which is a series of races for believe it or not the Hornet and the bellypan is to catch oil if you crack the sump the bikes also have a little bikini fairing and a snazzy tail section.

Great explanation. The bikes look nice, too!

Nil desperandum. To each their own I guess. I didn't want to get too wild with faring up the hornet, but I did like the sleek appearance the seat cowl and belly pan added. Kind of messes with people when they roll up next to me. I get crazy stares as people try to figure out just what the hell I'm riding. But I do hear you, dressing up a naked is a little... sacreligious. I guess that's why I'm a sinner. LOL.

I agree. Making alterations to the 599 to make it "your own" is a personal preference and should not be looked down on.

I always liked this one. The owner told me he got it on e-bay from a guy in Brazil. It wasn't listed, so I e-mailed the seller and he told me that he did have one, and to send him the money and he would get it to me. I said "no way" and never saw it listed again.

Love the army pants. And is it just me or is your oil pan filled with uranium? (Kind of has that radioactive glow about it... )

You sure do make that bike look smaller than i remember it being...

Ah...well...i still like the color-matched oil pan. Mine's color matched, too! (Of course black is a pretty common color for oil pans... )

That's the artfibras belly pan. I ordered a rear hugger and undertray from him and it was here from Brazil in like 8 days. His english sucks but the quality is pretty good. The only problem I think is that he constructs the pieces but doesn't drill any holes, he lets you do that which was fine for me.

Ermax. I think I ordered it from superbikestore.com but I can't remember for sure. I'll have to go dig for the paperwork later on tonight to let you know if that's where I picked it up from. Here's a pic of it on their website.

www.superbikestore.com/599BellypanErmax.jpg

Here's a pic of mine. I think they are selling a slighty newer version of it now, there seems to be a couple of tiny differences. Bad pic, I know. When I get a camera I'll hook up some nice pics for you guys. Oh, and that round canister thing in the back is that CA emissions whatsermajig, not part of the pan which I've had a few people wonder about.

PS - easy to install if you completely ignore the instructions that come with it and just kind of line the holes up. And look out for sharp edges up in there.

Default Artfibras

Found a website for them...not that I can understand it...

http://www.artfibras.com.br/honda-hornet/

Looks like funky stuff. They don't seem to sell off ebay anymore though?

If you email him he will sell it direct or he may post it on eBay for you. They are easy to deal with if you can get around the language barrier.
