installing frame sliders/hole positioning?? - March 14, 2008, 09:52 AM

Anyone have an idea about hole placement. I dont want to end up with a ratty looking hole around the sliders. thought about lines/string intersecting @ the bolt spot. Open for suggestions, your experience will be greatly reduce my chance of wasting a $500.00 side faring. THANKS

No cut are always an option... you have 1000RR right? SATO.

I used a Q-Tip inserted into the mounting bracket for the slider. The exposed side of the Q-Tip toward the fairing was dabbed in paint - then I positioned the fairing. Once removed you will see dead center from the paint on the fairing. Drill a small pilot hole and double check positioning. Finish it up with a hole bit in your drill.

Good luck.

+1 Cam - and be sure to use masking tape to help protect paint while cutting.

I feel stupid now, thats a great idea man...Thank you ... cbr 1000 and busa both are gettin sliders and bracketed ones seem no to work too well. Busa has been dropped from rear stand by me (stupidest thing: forgot to put in first gear and side stand folded back enough to roll forward and boom) and knocked over from sidestand by some fawked up human/animal. I did the left side and someone else did the right side in the middle of the night.

Cams suggestion is pretty much how I did it, you're going to take out 1.5-2" of fairing so as long as your pilot hole is inside of that perimeter you won't jack up the fairing.

I just kinda eyeballed a pilot hole with a drill, got my center off of that (second hole was centered perfect with the bolt), taped the fairing with painters tape, and used one of those coring bits (Circle Cutters). Came out immaculate, no tearing on the stock decal or paint damage. Sand the edges of the hole and it looks stock.

Use a laser pointer. This is how I did it on my '05 600rr:
(1) Place bike up on stands.
(2) Remove left fairing.
(3) Find a chair or a stack of books. Tape a laser pointer on top of stack/chair.
(4) Adjust laser so it points directly dead center of the bolt.
(5) Place fairing back on.
(6) Mark with pen at the laser point position.
(7) Remove fairing again and drill.
( Repeat with right fairing.

If you don't already have a laser pointer on a tripod try this:

Get some silly-puddy or play doh.
Remove side plastics.
Install the slider bolts into each side. One side at a time don't do both are the engine will be lured by gravities pull.
Place silly-puddy or similar product onto the inside of each plastic fairing approximately where the bolts will be.
Replace the side plastics, put back on snug and and ensure the bolt heads get pressed into the play doh.
Remove plastics and inspect for the bolt depression locations.
Drill a starter guide hole (1/8") in the center of the depression.
Use a 1 3/4" or 2" hole drill bit using the guide hole as the center. (double check and measure sliders size here ).
Dont drill too fast or plastics can melt. I've hard using the drill in the reverse direction works better for making a smoother cut. (teeth move like a shark fin not a saw blade).
Use a fine file or sand paper to remove burs and rough areas.
Get a rubber grommet typically used to route computer cables through desk tops and press grommet around the hole for a cleaner look.

Need to balance the cut size. Too big and it looks like slop. Too small and the plastics crack if the slider should bend.

+1. That's exactly how I did mine and both sides turned out perfect.

this works with a tripod and a lazer level
mark horizontal line and vertical line
x marks the spot.
