Thumbs up Motivation Accessories frame sliders

I have been looking for frame sliders for my new 919. After reading about them here, I noticed that Motivation Accessories was located here in Austin.

I decided to stop in and say Howdy. Since I arrived just after closing, the owner was the only one there and he invited me in. I was a bit chagrined to find out they don't really have a retail store - they do (almost) all their business on-line.

Anyway... he invited me in and we talked a bit and swapped a story or two. He also showed me some of their bikes - some very SWEET Italian hotties!
Ater drooling a bit I looked over the frame sliders (and some of their other inventory for future reference), paid my money and was on my way.

Nice folks there. I recommend them.

Sounds like you guys need to organize a group buy from them.

Nice sliders, too

I put some on my 919 after seeing those ugly pics in that threat titled "Do NOT use Sato frame sliders!". Changed my mind in seconds! Went with the Motovations and love them! Only b*tch was trying to drill through about 1/2" thick steel frame, even with a brand new titanium bit.
Problem was mostly that I was using a cordless 18v drill.

Love these badboys!

Shoot. My ryobi cordless drill and bits worked like a champ. I have the previous cordless model the dark blue one. Can't remember off hand how many volts it is.

Well, being the cheapskate that I am, and preferring to spend my money or my bike and my car audio stuff, I bought a cheap Black & Decker cordless from Walmart. That explains it all!

But seriously, the drill had no problem. It was the bits, and how far in I had to drill on each side of the frame. The first side went fine, but by the time I got to the other side, the bit was getting duller and I had to keep spraying it. I found out it's not that easy drilling through a half-inch of steel frame!

But I did it, they're in, and I love 'em!

I had to have a few beers before I could do it, drilling into the frame didn't seem like a great idea, but it all worked out and I had a good buzz by the time it was all over.

The Ryobi bits I used were spot on. Didn't dull at all. Grease really helped all the metal bits from going everywhere too.

glad to hear you had such a great experience with them. I ended up installing a cheap set off of ebay by going through the frame.

Motovations go through the frame too. However, not exactly cheap.
http://www.motovationusa.com/mvstore...?idproduct=201

Mine were $79 plus shipping, for a total of $92 and change. However, considering I paid $85 for the Sato sliders, I believe Motovation has the better item for a better price!

I do have a lot of people comment on them. Non-riders always ask what those black thingys are. Foot pegs? (Could easily be, man, but it's not a freakin chopper!).

What size bit did you all use to drill out the frame for the motovation sliders. Thinking or ordering a set.

If you can find a metric bit, use 10mm (~0.3937")

The proper SAE bit is 13/32", which is ~0.4063".

Drill Bit Size Chart

When I installed mine, drilling the left side hole took only a few moments.
The right side? I went through TWO new drill bits and about 30 minutes - there was a very hard spot caused by a weld in the frame. I strongly suggest using a standard (plug-in) drill, not a rechargeable. If you hit a hard spot like I did, you'll have to recharge the drill a couple times.

This does sound like a good group buy activity - any of you Austin boys interested in putting something together?

Guess I didn't use the "drill bit sizing chart. I just dug through my bits and the closest SAE size above the rod size was 7/16". It was very close, and no looseness. Did I f*ck up and drill too big of hole? Hey, it works and they haven't came loose. Maybe I should test them! Yeah, that's it! I'll do a power slide and jump off in a twisty at 60. I'll let you know how they hold up. NOT!

(NOT directed at you, directly, Texas. Just havin fun again. Actually I just want to state a point in a way that barton664 or MarylandMike would have... with a little humor/stupidity.)

Yup, you f*cked it up BAD.

You're better off just giving me the bike so I can dispose of it safely..... this is a service I'd do just for you, since you're such a nice guy

Don't do it...This is a SCAM.

According to USPS, 00919 is the zipcode for San Juan, PR, Not Bumf*ck, Washington. He is trying to get you to send the money to Puerto Rico!!! I am pretty sure that is a scam. Next money order will need to be sent to Nigeria!

Where's the Hairball smilie?

Can you tell me how much drilling is involved or why couldn't they have designed them to fit without drilling?
Thanks!

It's a no brainer, just open up the hole to accept a 10mm rod.

You can use a 8mm rod without drilling, Just don't come crying when something breaks if you have a accident!

When installed mine, I used regular Dewalt drill bits from a set and stepped up gradually in size until the hole was opened up enough. Went fairly easy.

BMiller, please let me know what kind of trouble you ran into. I am pretty nervous drilling into the frame.

Did you have black plastic caps over the holes originally? I want to make sure I'm drilling in the right place!!!

Also, does the shorter slider go on the right or left??

My drill is charging and I'm picking up two 13/32 cobalt bits tomorrow from ACE...

I will probably do as marylandmike suggested with a smaller (and cheaper) bit at first.

There are plastic caps over the holes (before). The shorter slider goes on the right side. Stand behind the bike and look down each side and it will be obvious. The alternator sticks out on the left side.

Good luck!

.
i bet $5 bucks the bit got stuck and it damn near broke his wrist...


do as marylandmike said and take and step it out bit by bit and use lots of lube on the bit and its easy as pie...

and for the record your not drilling a hole in the frame... the hole is there... you are just opening it up a bit....

Barton pretty much guessed it.........I only had a problem because the first bit I used was just slightly smaller then I needed to be using.......so, when I used the proper size, it bound and unfortunately with the switching of directions I kept doing, my hand bumped the "LOCK" button and it locked in the forward position..........ripped the drill outta my hand and spun it.........the handle was literally beating my knees/hands mercilessly until I grabbed the cord that was wrapping around the drill and ripped it from the extension.......it wasn't too much fun........but right after that I finished the other side too and mounted it

Be careful out there! haha

When I installed mine a couple of weeks ago, it was a two pass approach, lots of oil and about 20 minutes. Went like a charm. But I pulled them back off to add a couple of lock washers as I didn't have a thin wall socket that would fit into the opposite slider, so I couldn't get them tight enough. The washers did the trick. They also look pretty good.
