Not a foolish question at all!
Judging by all the damage to the Belly Pan on my bike, mostly but not exclusively from parking lot speed bumps, I am very, Very, VERY glad I have it.
The last impact from a piece of truck tire, generously thrown my way by another vehicle, damaged the front section of my belly pan to the point that one of the two retaining screws will not work now. Maybe time to replace it? Attached picture was taken some time ago, before this latest insult to the Belly Pan.
That said, as others have mentioned; you definitely want one that has a removable panel for changing the oil and oil filter.
