I used a dremel on mine and a friends and both turned out great. Just takes a lot of time to go little by little. Take your best guess at where the center is and drill a hole. I just worked my way out from there by cutting a little at a time.
Best sliders out there and as far as the cutting goes...here is all you need to do...
Put some duct tape on the bodywork covering the area that will be cut/grinded off...use a sand paper roll an you should be fine...
Did this to mine 1 1/2 years ago and no paint this or that issues...no black plastic trim or anything else.
Bodywork comes off and goes on regulary and NO ISSUES, i have about 4mm gap from the metal mounts versus the fairing.
If you need close ups let me know and i will post them up
Man... the bolt for the right side isn't quite long enough to grab the threading. It goes in fine without the lathed aluminum part but put it all together and it's too short. WTF? Surely they aren't *all* the wrong size are they?
Does anyone with yoyodynes recall if the bolts for the left and right sides are different lengths? Mine are the same length for left and right.
i went with motovation frame sliders. you could start with a 1 inch hole saw on a drill to get started and then do fine touches with a dremel. i used a carbide bit in an ingersole and shve the plastic really slow. turn out okay
