Thanks

Got these from Lockhart Phillips....



don't think they'd hold up at speed too well, but DEFINITELY would if you dropped it standing still.

A buddy dropped his brand new Triumph 995 yesterday (one day old... ALWAYS, ALWAYS make sure the guy in front of you actually pulled out before you pull out next, even if it's a Hardly you're following) and put a hole in the fairing exactly where these would have been mounted :(

snotrocket, I'm assuming those are fairing mounted sliders right? Do you still have to cut your fairing to mount 'em?

Im in the process of installing some that go to the engine mount and require cutting a hole in the fairings and coolant tank. I made the holes in fairing but not hte coolant tank, Im still looking for a way to seal it. Got em from megatron, a uk company for $66 shipped.

The bolts were too short and im gonna have to get some longer bolts(theyll send em) and find some spacers.

Snotrocket, those ones look great. I looked at them on the website, but they aren't showing listings for the '03 bike yet.

Just be careful. Some frame sliders are quite effective while others are just for show. I have seen two basic problems, so far. The first are mounting screws that are way to small to withstand any sort side impact, which is highly likely in a slide down the road situation without just snapping off the screw. The other, and even more unfortunate situation is when the slider is secured onto something completely unsuitable for task. I have actually seen situations where the slider greatly added to the severity of the damage. The fairing generally gets ruined anyway, but when the slider destroys the frame by directly transferring the impact into something that otherwise would have been unaffected and was not able to withstand the impact. So, give a little attention to the screw size and exactly where the thing is attached. There’s always somebody out there anxious the sell you something, but it’s up to you to consider the design merits and not just the desired ‘look’, but it’s function as well.

They simply replace the fairing screws in that location... no cutting needed on the '02's. They are tough plasric, have alum. collar at the connection point and aluminum end caps. Stick out about 1".

I'll admit that they are more for looks and damage control from a standstill drop than for any serious protection from a 40 MPH lowside.

These particular ones are designed to fit into the recess in the fairing (sorry DJ) and when tighted up there was a little play in the fairing... I wrapped some elect. tape around the slider base, JUST enough to snug it up... would hope that at a reasonable speed, that little bit of slack would help save the fairing too.....
