Angry '09 ER-6n Woodcraft frameslider install problem

Has anyone managed to successfully install the left side of the Woodcraft frame sliders on an 09 ER-6n? Can you share how you did it.

The left side came with an 8mm bolt and washer, but according to the spot to install it has a two welded bits around it, which narrow the diameter so the slider base doesn't fit.

Any help is appreciated.

Any instructions on how to properly install the Woodcraft Frame Sliders on a 09 would be greatly appreciated - am about to do the install on sunday.
Didn't know there would be any problems (apart from frame cutting which is a PITA).

The frame sliders are 2" in diameter but use a 2 1/4" hole saw or you will spend 30minutes dremmeling your fairings if you aren't exactly precise (my lesson learned). Also, make sure you lay your fairing on a blanket or something else soft while you are working. I had mine on a cardboard box which I thought was fine but when I pulled it back up it had a huge streak of tiny scratches in the clearcoat from where it was rubbing on the cardboard. Maybe I'm just retarded and these tips are obvious but I thought I'd share them anyway lest you repeat my mistakes.

I appreciate alle the help, brother.
I think it's better to listen to something twice than misheard it once.

Do you have any pictures of your install? They would help a lot for sure cause I have never installed sliders on a faired bike before..
Cheers
