I need frame sliders for my 636 and I want to get a good deal on them. Wheres the best place on line ot get them? And if possible I would like silver colored ones but I am not sure if they come in silver to match my bike.
I found some Lockhart carbon fiber frame sliders on the Parts411 website http://www.parts411.com/acb/showdetl.cfm?&DID=9&Product_ID=19587&CATID=22.
I was looking into ordering them but wanted to make sure that they are the ones that bolt into the engine. Is there anyone who has these that can tell me if they bolt in the engine? Even if you don't have they and you know for sure, let me know.
Apollo, is there a such thing as universal frame sliders? Because I looked at the picture on the site that i listed and it appears as if that slider is in the swingarm. However, on page 106 of the LP catalog, those same sliders are bolted through the faring of a Honda and a Yamaha. I have seen pictures of 6Rs on this site that have these same sliders in the faring. Unfortunately, I can't find any of them now. I verified that the part numbers of the same. http://www.lockhartphillipsusa.com/pages/product-sub3.asp?id=278
There arn't universal sliders, but those are probobly frame sliders and the picture is just wrong. If you look at the picture you can see they are in the swing arm.
I would go with the Vortex frame sliders though. Those LP ones have the slider plate screwed into the piece so that if you go down it will grind down the screws and you can't get it out. The vortex sliders don't have this problem.
Fedarrel, those are tight!! [:0] Nice find. I had been looking for some different ones. If you get them, let me know what you think. Post a picture if you can.
Apollo, I agree that the picture on the Parts411 is incorrect. That is a swingarm. The Vortex frame sliders are ok, but I just didn't like the color of any of the pucks. Besides black and white, all the other colors look flouresent.
