Motovation 919 frame sliders discontinued - any other thru-frame options?

I need to replace my Motovation frame sliders on my 919 (long story - don't ask...). I just called Motovation and they discontinued them for the 919 about a month ago - which seems odd because he said they get 1-2 calls per week for them...

Are there any other options for frame sliders that go through the frame, instead of bolting to the engine?

Thanks!

Not sure, but my 919 maybe on the chopping block in exchange for a bmw S1000r. If so, I'll pull my sliders for you before I trade it in.

Or you could buy my vfr800 which is currently listed in the classifieds....

T-Rex sliders are really good. I've used mine in a slide and a tip over and they've worked perfectly. You could buy the T-Rex sliders and just use the rod from your motovation sliders. I bought T-Rex and cut a rod to length and threaded both ends.

Keep me posted - if you get rid of it I'll be interested in buying your sliders.

The VFR would be a nice, but pricey, alternative to new sliders!

The T-Rex pucks are definitely priced right. What did you use for the rod? One side of mine is bent, so I'll either need to get a full slider set, or do the same thing you did.

Thanks! I just called them - they plan to do a run of about 20 kits for the 919, sometime in the next few weeks.
I only need the bolt and the right side slider puck - it turns out the only replacement parts they have left is 1 bolt and a couple right side slider pucks. I just ordered the parts! Thanks again!
