Sliders for my 919

What's the hot setup for sliders for a 919? Votes please....

I was running a set of Rizoma engine sliders that I converted to frame sliders. Loved 'em... Tore one off in a crash but it did the job. Would love to go back with them but apparently they're no longer available.


Thanks in advance...
Rob

I'm on my second set of frame sliders from Sato Racing. Did their job well the first time so I went with them again. I like the look of them as well... a very simple design that I think goes well with the 919. They come in black or white.

Heck no to these, they are mounted to the engine, not the frame. Asking for a busted engine in a spill.

If they can be retrofitted to install to the frame, then that would be better, especially if you could attach the two with a single rod like the Motovations.

I like the looks of the Satos... But can't justify the work to retrofit them to frame mounts. When I retrofitted the Rizomas, I had a friend spin up some aluminum spacers and then had to source extra long SS SHCS's.

Thanks for the input !!!

I thought some members has retrofitted them to frame mounts. I'll have to check into it as I still don't have any sliders on my bike!

Another suggestion for the motovation.

https://www.motovationusa.com/mvstor...?idproduct=201

The instructions will say that reaming the frame holes will be needed. This is very easy. I just ran a slightly oversized drill bit into the holes on both sides. Piece of cake.

Just order up the Motovation Sliders. Thanks for all of the input. I don't expect any problems with installation. I had tapped those holes in the past when I modified the Rizomas to frame mount... I may install these the same way. Will just have to look at it when they get here.

If you already drilled the holes out it should be an easy fit. Good luck. May you never need them.

He tapped, not drilled. It takes a 10mm hole to fit the motovations. You can find an SAE bit pretty darn close to it. 3/8 isn't far off, but a 39/64 is closer IIRC.

+1 for Motovation. 2 lowsides and a 0mph drop, and barely any damage (strawberry on rear fairing and small scrape on the crankcase cover).

When I ordered mine, they sent me back a note that they were on backorder and asked if I still wanted them. I said yes... I'll wait. It took about 3 weeks but I did get them within the last couple of weeks.

Might want to try again or give them a call. Good Luck !

Called Motivation - Permanently out of stock and discontinued.

I have a feeling this trend is going to continue as the 919 gets older.

Scroll down to the section "replacement sliders"

Honda CB900F 919 Hornet Frame Sliders

Order 2 left side sliders. Then go to home depot & get a threaded rod. Drill into the your frame just enough to expand the holes & let the threaded rod through. Tighten & you are done.

You can also drill & tap & install the sliders with M10 size screws. Search on the forums, someone has done that before.

I tried OES sliders and returned them, they are too short period. They came even with the case covers, didn't extend beyond them. AND they were dicks about it...

Strange, I have had OES sliders on 4 different bikes now & I have crash tested them at the track & can say that they work rather well. With the 9er I did have to use a spacer to push one of the sides further out, don't recall which.

As for customer service, I have called them a no. of times & each time I have had to remind one of the brothers (OES is owned & operated by twin brothers) that I have to hang up as they wouldn't shut up

OES are terrible, Clorox had them and they warped from a short stand still. Very cheaply made compared to T-Rex sliders. I went down on TRex sliders at 50mph and slid for 10-12 yards. Picked it up and kept riding through southern Mexico.

Get T-Rex for a cheaper high quality option.

T-Rex save my T at the track, no doubt about it. Bought a single left slider unit from them for a cheap $30 and they had it to me in 2-3 days.

For the T-Rex sliders, since they were made for the engine mount, anyone know know how much of a spacer is needed to relocate them to the frame?

Hmm perhaps for the 919 they are terrible.

For my GSXR I have personally crash tested their frame sliders & spool sliders at NJMP Thunderbolt. I low sided at 50 mph & both of them saved my frame & swingarm from ruin.

To each his own i guess.

I used a 1/4 inch spacer & worked fine.

I have T-Rex on mine mounted to the frame, no problems, plenty long enough unlike the OES.

Hi. New here. But I think there is an answer to have frame-mounted sliders. Above and just forward of the engine hangers (engine mount) there is the frame point that has a plastic cover in it. Take out that cover, drill, tap and you are set. I'd use M10 x 1.25. The length bolt is ???? will be different between the sides as the right slider is shorter than the left.

Hope this is of some help.
Best

Yup, those are the exact holes to which I was referring. Nice catch.

Same here. When I ordered it, I asked for two long ones and they had no issues accommodating it

Just in case they take this off their site (motovation) soon, as it is a limited run.


So these are the bees knees eh? Hearing quite a few of ya's giving it the thumbs up. What is the difference between these motovations and the T-Rex ones other than the T-Rex ones are two bolts and the motovations are one bolt. Why the major price difference? Motovation: $120, T-Rex $40.

This'll be the first purchase of 2015 for my 9'er - also gotta track down that little kick-stand dealio that props up the back wheel. I liked that - time to hunt the forum for it, and then maybe I'll make purchaso numero duece-o - Ok I think I'm done here.

And the Ugliest Seat Award goes to....

no tapping needed with the motivations. You need to buy other bolts to properly mount the t-rex to the frame.
