I have a set with bolts and threaded rod if you want them.

The drilling is really no big deal. I only had to enlarge the hole a bit at each end and didn't have to drill all the way thru.

I ordered them a while ago to make my own go throu the frame type (threaded rod) but decided to order GSG type because of the better double bolt mount.

Thanks

Hey Mike, I have two 9ers, both with the non-drill sliders. No problems. The one I have dropped and skidded at low and high speed. They work!

This.

Drilling is easy, unless you find a hard spot in the weld like I did.

Still, it is more annoying than difficult - drilling then takes 20 minutes vs. the normal 3 minutes.

Your other option is to mount the sliders to the engine case, and that will most likely get VERY expensive the first time you use the sliders (ie. a cracked engine case).

+1. If you have the right bit, drilling is not hard. One side of mine did take a lot longer than the other though, must have had a spot in the weld as TT mentioned.

Thanks for the info!
