1000rr Frame Sliders

I'm new to the web site here, but I was wondering if anyone knows the torque specs for installing frame sliders on the 04 1000rr?

I went with "tight" on the sliders on my 929
just don't tighten the crap out of them as I believe they are probably steel bolts going into aluminum holes so you can strip it easy.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: 1000rr Frame Sliders

I know that on my wifes 600rr it's 40ft/lb. I didn't know if it would be tighter or not.

Re: 1000rr Frame Sliders

Assuming that your frame sliders mount on the middle hanger bolt, the specified torque is 47ft-lbs (64 N-m).

Re: 1000rr Frame Sliders

Are you gonna cut holes in the lower, or are you using the bracket type?

I've got the manual at home, if you can let me know which engine bolt you are using I can check for you.

Re: 1000rr Frame Sliders

Don't worry all, I went with CBR929RE specifications of "tight". They are on now, with the bracket to hang down, they look pretty sweet! I took it out for a ride that took about 5 hours nothing happened, so I'm guessing they should be good, thanks for all the help. This place is a lot better than cbr600rr.com, all they do there is talk trash and never help anyone out!

haha cool my non-technical answer got the nod over all your foot/lb mumbo jumbo talk
now lets hope you don't have to use them, I'd rather have to use them for looks than function

Re: 1000rr Frame Sliders

I hope so too! I was going to put some on my 600rr, but never did and I laid that down twice. Let's just hope that it was all karma! I did put some on my wifes 600, but that was after she dropped it in the driveway!

I dropped my frist bike (86 ZX6R) so many times and that thing took a good beating, wish I had some on there for the concrete highway barrier incident as it might has helped keep more flesh on my knee. I dropped my 929 against my back stairs once and that was an expensive drop ($215 for the lower fairing and $480 for the tank, yeah I got the hook up) but the non-existant at the time frame sliders wouldn't have helped anyway but since then I've put on a set of Intuitives and I love how they look and haven't tested them yet, maybe the bike will just say "screw it I'm not going down out of spite for those sliders wanting to be used"
its weird to think that sliders are the one thing you buy and install but never want to use

Re: 1000rr Frame Sliders

My only thing about getting them was that everyone I know that has them and wrecked have bent their frame. But I went for a track day a couple of weeks ago and I wasn't really pushing myself because I didn't have any on and didn't want to lowside and totally tear the bike up. So when I go again this month hopefully I won't be so scared!

did they buy the metal ones which are more bling than function or did they have the good delrin ones which are meant to basically grind away while sliding on the pavement?

I never understood why people bought those metal ones and especially why those shows bike have big chrome ones, I woulda just chromed the frame and not have had this big thing sticking out of it that really just looks kind of akward

Re: 1000rr Frame Sliders

Mine are just straight plastic, to serve the purpose. But her's are the ones with metal ring on the end, like you said, for the bling!

I bet the ones with the metal ring are a little better than the all metal ones atleast.
