Not as bad as it looks
It is very easy to install frame sliders. I did mine last week and used this video to help with body removal.You did it yourself? all the fairing removal and stuff?
I have mine for 2 weeks now sitting in the box waiting to be installed..I dont want to mess with the bike so I just keep it for the break in service at the dealership for them to install.
Thanks for the pictures, will use them to show to the mechanics there.
I ended up going with the Shogun No Cut Carbon, they look really good!give it a shot. mine are arriving today (stoked).
the carbon ones were not in stock for a long time (STG or revzilla or even at Ebay infact). i just jumped on them right away once they were back in stock. Installing them over the weekend ("if you cant ride the bike, modify it" my motto).:devil:
i second this too. finger tightening initially gives a feel of whether the bolt is sitting in fine or not. i have messed up the threads on a bolt once when i directly went all hulk with the wrench directly. :grin:If possible try to start threading the bolt with finger tips so you can feel the threads mesh, then use a socket/wrench. My hands don't work so well anymore, and I loose too much feeling when starting bolts, etc., with a socket or other extensions, where I can usually feel my way if holding them directly. Just a thought.
the best part with these is the 2 point mount that they come with. the sliders will not rotate when it hits the ground there by protecting the engine mount.Has anyone gotten the T-Rex sliders ?, I installed mine about a week ago and was very easy to do Imo they seem a lot better product than The Kawasaki branded or the others that are out there
I ended up paying a painful $65 USD in postage, no further tax. I got to the point where I simply wasn't happy with the other options and nothing else would do. I figured in the scheme of fairing damage prices I'd stomach it. Beats paying for something less when itself fails, frame mounting point gets mangled and you still get fairing damage to boot.The T-Rex sliders look great and sturdy, but unfortunately I live in eastern EU and shipping to my country is another 100$+ and on top of that I have to pay 19% import tax ?. Does anyone know a company from the EU that is importing TRex, or for that matter TST, parts? Because I don't think there is any way to dodge the import taxes and those coupled with the shipping make any parts prohibitively expensive.
