Frame Sliders

Anyone out there know of some frame sliders for a 900RR that do not require you to cut the fairings to put them on? What is the point of cutting a fairing to put something on to protect a fairing you just cut?

I take it you're not a big fan of sliders?

Re: Frame Sliders

No really, I have seen a 95 Blade frame twisted and engine mount busted off the motor because of them... Even if its just a fall off the stand, the slider bolted through the frame into the engine will take all the weight of the bike.

Re: Frame Sliders

they helped prevent about $600 (or more) in damage on a friend of mines brand spanking new 2007 bike when she dropped it the first time she rode it......better to have them,than to not in ,my opinion

Re: Frame Sliders

I think it depends on the impact. A direct fall can result in more harm than good.

I have them and it didn't take a whole lot to install them. (I had to cut)

Re: Frame Sliders

See I like the idea of them, but it really just doesnt make sense to cut a perfectly good beautiful fairing. I have heard there are sliders out there for the 954 that don't require cutting but I can't find anything for the 900.

Re: Frame Sliders

Some bikes require cutting the fairing to mount sliders, others don't. It's usually good insurance for protecting your bike if you go down as they can reduce damage not only to the fairings, but the engine covers, subframe, pegs, etc. Well worth it, IMO...

Re: Frame Sliders

the ones you are looking for are called no cut sliders.... you should read reviews online, most people say they can do more damage than good... try motovation.com... they make no cut and race sliders...

Re: Frame Sliders

The problem with a no cut is that they are offset by design. Part of how a frame slider works is that it is in an engine mount that is a strong location by moving it off center you apply a torque to the mount (a bad thing)

Bring your bike to a local welding shop, tell them what you want and i'm sure they can fabricate a bracket for both sides for around $50 or so.And "confidence" in your riding may not be the problem,but what about if you contact a patch of sand or oil coming to a stop ? Sh*t does happen. I was working on my bike over the winter, parked it in my driveway, started walking away into my garage, and BAMM, the bastard fell over as the kick stand dug into the gravel.The slider did it's job,it's stupid sh*t like that where they come in handy also....go to a welding/machine shop,and check it out, won't cost you anything to have them give you an estimate
