lightech sliders UPDATED WITH PICS

I just ordered some lightech sliders for the 1000RR from OPP RACING I hope that they fit like the valtermoto ones I have seen on the net, they sure look the part. They were $200 canadain plus $14 for shipping and should be here by the end of the week if all goes well I will post up some pics and a fitment review, no crash tests, sorry

On another not any one want to donate some money so I can get some of the fancy carbon parts they have on their site? they sure would look purdy on there I have been thinking about a front fender and a rear hugger but, that stuff will have to wait for now

Re: Just ordered some lightech sliders

I would suggest running them in combination with another slider like a shogun. The no-cuts look pretty but can cause as much damage as they prevent. Trust me I'm speaking from experience.

And then there's this asshole...

I know what you are trying to get across but have a close look at the lightech sliders, they are a LOT different then most of the no cut ones out there, they are in a triangle shape and the bracket looks to rest/brace again the frame...Looks to be almost the same as the really expensive Valtermoto ones. I will see how they fit and if I am not pleased then I will be hacking into the plastic and installing some sato sliders.

As for the carbon...I wish I could but for now, I am just going to ignore that stuff before I do something stupid I will check them out though TGZ

Re: Just ordered some lightech sliders

Well they are here...in just over a two days big thumbs up for that...they look very nice, but the only problem is that I really wanted to go for a ride tonight and instead I have to spend it pulling apart and cleaning my bike could be worse I guess. I will be sure to post pics(now that I have my camera back ) and a fitment review when I get them on tonight or tomorrow.

Re: Just ordered some lightech sliders

Another quick question about these does any one know which side needs the bigger spacer...there are no instructions and I would hate to strip a bolt.

Mind you I maybe able to tell once I get the factory bolts out

Re: lightech sliders UPDATED WITH PICS

Ok I finally got my sliders installed tonight and my finding are as follows..they look as if they will hold up very well in a crash as they are VERY solid and fit quite well. They don't stick out very far from he fairing at all which means that in the event of a small get off there will need to be some plastic replaced but in the even of a larger mishap, things should be good(I am hoping that I NEVER need them)

for those of you who are looking at installing similar ones(valermoto's), I put the larger spacer on the left hand side of the bike it seemed to fit best there?

All in all, I am very happy with the looks and fit of the lightech sliders and as well as the level of service I received from OPP racing

now for the pics, enjoy

Also, I have an extra part after all of my installation is complete it is a little piece of plastic and I cannot figure out where it fits back on? I beleive that it came from the right hand side of the bike? it is the little piece of plastic that is pictured on the lawn chair...any ideas?

Re: lightech sliders UPDATED WITH PICS

They look good, not that noticeable which I like. Hopefully you'll never have to test them out. As for the part, can't help you as I don't have a 1000RR. Maybe if I get to ride one Saturday I will be able to help you out at that time!!

Look, lean, believe!!

Nice job with the pics.

Re: lightech sliders UPDATED WITH PICS

Look nice. I think I may end up getting them... Their web site says the large spacer goes on the left so looks like you figured that out for yourself.

Are you coming out for a ride with us on saturday? I am normally pretty good about others riding my bike, as long as they have a little "backing" ad are decent riders.
