  • Frame & Swingarm sliders

    Picked these up from ebay last Monday and they rocked up yesterday. Polished alloy frame sliders and swingarm spools. Only cost me $62 AU all up delivered which was a bargain.

    Didnt fancy drilling my fairings or paying $300 for special ones with brackets, hence I just got fairing mounted sliders. They still bolt into a fairly beefy looking tab off the frame so it shouldnt be to bad, its not like they are attached to a flimsy bracket or anything. They seem to be bloody solid now they are bolted on but with any luck I wont ever have to test them out anyway

    Only problem with them was the frame slider bolts werent long enough but got some replacements for just a few dollars that work perfectly.

    Spent most of today giving her a clean and putting all the standard bodywork back on her just incase the worst happens tomorrow arvo (AHG rider tuning) or Sunday (PSB trackday duh!).

    Err that aint a swing arm slider... thats a pick up bobbin for a paddock stand.
    But i guess if you try hard enpough you could slide on it.
    Trying to think of a wise and sincere signature quote, but the only words that leap to mind are, "TITTY SPRINKLES"

          Looks the goods mate, I was wondering if they were going to show up in time or not.

          Did Mr Sheen give you a hand with making her nice and sparkly? Having her all clean and smooth should give you less drag coefficient (better aerodynamics) which "might" help you keep up with me on the trackday

          Now you have had some practice at cleaning bikes you can have a crack at mine on Saturday

          yep, they should do both jobs, make it easier for him to use the paddock stand and also provide some protection to the swingarm should she have a close encounter of the bitumen type
