Ebay Frame Sliders?

Anybody ever checked these out? If so, what's the verdict. The price is right...

Look very similar to the ones I got some years back. I changed out the bolts and frame mounted them (not engine mounted as they are set up in the images). Nothing wrong with the slider material but they are untried in respect to a crash!

Hold up fine to jack the front end of your bike off the ground too!

^^ Agree with Allan. Do NOT mount these to the engine motor mount. Instead, you may need to get some hardware and mount them to your frame.

I know there are more threads with better pictures, but this should give you a better idea why not to mount them as suggested by the Ebay ad.

i have em mounted to my bike, and for what they do, they work well. the price indeed is right. in fact, they were cheap enough that i was willing to mount the givi crash bars and then mount these in the engine mount area. the price was so cheap i was very willing to grind the sides down to make them fit with the givi crash bars. their purpose: foot rests and they work well.

i bought the trex? sliders after my last deployment. they looked great. easy install. but then i had to test them...they wore out after maybe 40 ft of sliding? the gas tank was dented and shaved down pretty good as well as the alternator cover and rear seat cowl. i guess they did the job...idk...i upgraded this time to the givi crash bars...hope i never have to find out if they work...

i can assure you, they will work great as i've tested them, both sides. right side collided with an f150 and the left side met pavement and slide 30-40 feet before being dragged another 20 ft or so.

I put a set of them on my bike today. I bought them mostly to use for a helmet lock. They seem to be good quality and installed easily. I was initially worried it would be a pain because of some of the issues some people had installing the motovation sliders. I got out the trusty Craftsmen cordless and my Harbor Freight bits and tap&die set and went to work. I had them installed in under 20min counting the time it took to drill and tap the frame. The sliders came with bolts to install on the motor mounts, but obviously I didn't go that route. I bought 2-10X1.5mm bolts with about 20mm of threads protruding from the slider to go into the frame. Here's a few pics of the install. I am just waiting on the lock from Amazon to finish it off.
