Frame Sliders - June 29, 2007, 05:08 AM

Now your all saying why would you need tech help on installing frame sliders? I just do... I bought some delrin ones off ebay. Seem to be nice quality and finish. Problem now is I have no instructions on installing these. Both sliders are the same size but one has a longer base to it and screw than the other does. I am not sure which side gos on which. Only way I really thought to figure it out is install them and see which side sticks out more and try both sides until it looks right from behind the bike. I have an R1 if anyone knows which slider gos on which side I'd really be appreciative. Thanks for your time and help

I don't see anything wrong with needing help installing frame sliders!!

I don't have an answer for you because I have a 600rr, but I must say that I was able to find all the information I needed to know on 600rr.net..... there may be a similar r1 forum??? might be good to check in to it anyway for future "how to's"... the bike specific forums tend to have really great info...

I hope they're not the nice shiny ones with rivets or small bolts on the ends. My buddy hutch always preaches about his friend in hawaii that had a set like that and when he went down, the bike skidded for a little, then the slider caught a groove in the road and kept spinning the bike around, completely anihilating the tail and some other stuff.

Did you email protek@protekk.com customer support? Otherwise...call anybody online that sells them - tell them you wanna see how difficult the install will be before you buy them and request they fax the directions.

Not a stupid question at all. What is stupid is thinking you know what you are doing, mounting them backwards and cracking your cylinder when the "too-long" bolt was over tightened into the side of the cylinder. Saw that results of that on a brand new R1 a few years ago at a bike shop.

Make sure you locktite the bolt and the slider (if u have no cut style ones). I have heard of a few guys in the r6-forum that come back from a ride and a slider is missing. It seems to be mostly just the plastic par.
