Where we race, bikes WILL overheat without the fan (it has happened to me). Sometimes people drag ass on their warm-up lap and we sit on the grid too long, or they are delayed getting us out for our warm-up lap.

I have tried to get away without the fan in the past and it just isn't ideal. It sucks sitting there on the grid, waving your hands trying to get them to hurry up, and seeing the red light come on the dash.

I was going to remove my fan to fit the belly pan. I ride in upstate NY at Nyst. Any thoughts? I've had to spread the volcanic ash of whatever it's called to soak up oil after someone's bike puked. I don't want to be the guy to hold up everyone else from burning laps.

Upstate NY is about same latitude as Hungary, so climate should be similar (in fact, NY is very much like Budapest as far as temperatures go in my experience). The only time I have ever missed a fan was indeed when having to wait on grid or at pit exit. I just shot engine down as soon as I suspect longer wait. I am not removing starter.

Great input everyone.
I live in the US South and experience high-humidity days with ambient air temperature greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer track season.
Thus, I will do everything I can to keep the fan; but we shall see if I can figure this out.
Bottom line, if anybody has pics or other insight regarding how to accomplish having a bellypan and and fan, please post. Knowledge is power and right now, I feel meek! (But better than before I started this thread.) One step at a time.
More to come when the bodywork arrives and I try to figure this out in the real (physical) world of hardware, fiberglass, tools and grease.

I know it is a few weeks off, but try to remember to bump this thread (or send me a PM) sometime around Feb. 19th or so. I will see the bike that weekend when I get to the track and I will try to remember to take some pictures (if you haven't gotten it sorted by then).

Yeah, how in the hell did you keep the fan on the Panigale and install the oil retention pan? Chaotic

Are you guys using distilled water or are you allowed to use engine ice?

I dunno Leon, remind me at Tally.

I use water and water wetter. Engine ice is against the rules because it is glycol based.

I use distilled water + "Water Wetter" mixed according to the proportions specified on the WW bottle. It is an accepted coolant at tracks and with racing organizations.
My understanding is that "Engine Ice" is falling out of favour with some tracks and organizations.

EDIT: +1 on Chaotic's comment.
Here is an example of the dangers of glycol-based coolants (very slippery): Coolant Dump
