Can I help someone put them on. Intuitive has some for my bike, but, plastic needs to be cut.

I don't know nothing about no plastic cutting.:p

Thanks!
Brian

Usual payment: beer/soda, lunch, whatever

i could probably help you but dont blame me for fucking it up..never done it before but tis not that hard.

best advise i heard was to take off the flairing...put a bolt in it..put some silly putty behind the spot on the flairing and put it back on press on that spot and remove...you should have a nice spot showing where the bolt is..drill a pilot hole them use your hole saw of the right size for the slider..and your done;)

Name the day.....maybe it can be another suspension set-up day as well.

I doubt you could fuck it up....I am "tool illiterate" so, anything that requires more than putting in/out screws/nails/bolts I am lost.

Thanks Ken

Brian,

Why don't you bring 'em to the BBQ....

After we go through a few cases of beer, we can carve up your bike:cheers :laughing :cheers

Ken's got the right idea about the bolt and some putty. The most important thing is to START SMALL. Find the center of the bolt hole then work out from there. A hole saw works good, but I recommend some tape over the intended cutting target to reduce any paint chipping. Getting the hole a bit too big isn't even that bad aslong as it's even all the way around the slider. A dremel rotary tool works awesome for finishing it off.

I'd be happy to help you put them on if you can wait two weeks. Same for you, Tony.

I could definitely lend you a hand if needed. Here's a step by step that works real well. It worked for me. Keep in mind this is geared toward an R6, but the idea and technique is exactly the same.

Here's the link

Frame sliders are a breeze to install. I've done or helped on quite a few. The link Doc put up is a good walk thru.

I did it about a month ago....a little nerve racking at first, but no problems at all. Perfect cut. The puty way works the best.

I will be doing my sharskinz soon as well. I have both 2" and 2.125" holesaws if anyone wants to borrow them when Im done.

Sliders work!!! No question....saved my plastics.

:eek:t

Did anyone see Yates lowside at VIR? I was watching it last night and his bike slid almost exactly as I beleive mine did except for the very end where his flipped violently.

Now I see how my nose and left side touched down.

One BIG recommendation for the tutorial....

Start in reverse to score a line with the holesaw.....go slow.

If you start with the teeth in a cut position ] >>>>
you may crack/splinter the plastic.

I ran mine in reverse until it would not score anymore. Then I reversed to forward and puched through clean.

Too add to that Kruz, I would go with a light pressure and faster speed. That will allow the drill to remove the plastic without digging in.

If you're free during the day, I can put them on tomorrow if you want to drive your ass all the way down to the Kankakee area. It's your call. Or you can hold out for one of the other guys closer to you.

What about tomorrow .....i have until 2:00pm...if someone comes by me I can remove the fairings and probably install the sliders & re-assemble....it's the cutting part & I do not have anything to cut with.

Lemme know
