Installed New Style T-Rex Racing Sliders

Just got these in the mail today. Beefy sons-a-guns. They are solid with a big alloy piece that is threads on to. I also installed the '06 599 engine mount spacers while I had it apart as they are a little larger diameter than the '04 599 version.

Nice! I put T-Rex's on my Tuono, but my wife's 599 needs some sliders. Glad to know they make them for the 599! I was very impressed with the two sets on the T.

Question:
On the lovely 919, in a basic lay down, what parts of the bike are protected by these pegs? Does it keep the tank off the ground? Or just the engine?

Didn't do much for me, was less of a spark show than it could have been though. I can say that this time I didn't tear a hole in the tank (happened on my 02 w/o sliders) but I also didn't slide on a caliche shoulder this time around.

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Got them in the mail yesterday. Finally got them installed today. They are extremely easy to install and much bigger than the OES sliders that I removed. Solid looking product.

You ought to move those sliders to the frame and not on the engine. If you ever do lay it over you risk cracking you engine case.

What part on that bike requires the use of a pipe wrench?

They do look good though.

Kinda worried about drilling the holes to do that. Also, wouldn't I need a longer bolt? New to all of this.

The pipe wrench was to get leverage on the allen wrenches to remove my old sliders.

I think what some have done is to tap the frame hole and then bolt the slider to the frame, at least that is how I did mine.
Not trying to give you crap, my sliders are made of stainless steel, not exactly ideal.
