919 Sliders moved,vibration Stopped!

The 1st thing I did to Lil Red was put the extra long Sliders on as instructed. Then I noticed some vibration in my bars from 4000 on up. After I read the posts about the sliders knocking a chunk out of a $6000 motor, well I tapped and installed them in the frame hole. Ergo, my 1st ride revealed, the vibration was gone, plus they are better suited now for moving feet to stretch legs.
I guess the delrin was not solid enough to act as part of the motor mount.
I may mill out some plates to tie into both bolt holes, and push the sliders out 3/8" farther.

Hmmm... I have noticed that my hands don't go numb like they used to. I don't know exactly when, but I did replace my Sato sliders with the GSG Motechs no too long ago.

Check out these sliders! http://www.motovationusa.com/mvstore...?idproduct=201
The best idea I've seen yet. They're cheap and right here in Austin TX you'd probably get them in 2 days and they ship out like right now. I ordered mine UPS ground this past Friday and I installed them on yesterday.

Can you post (or send me) a pic of the installation. ([email protected]) I am interested in a slider of some sort and do not want to mount it to the engine, but rather the frame. Thanks, David

I did not use sliders instead I got some cheap BMX pegs and drilled them out to fit. I put them on the frame mount bolts in place of the washers and they worked really well when some kids pushed my bike over while I was at work.
They would not work as well for a crash at speed but I seem to knock my bikes over in the driveway the most anyway. They also make good highway pegs.
Cheap steel BMX pegs seem better than the higher quality and lighter aluminium ones ,at least for my purpose.

I like the concept and look of those frame mounted sliders, a bit apprehensive about drilling the holes larger in the frame though. Anyone have some input on that?

I'd like to see some pics of them installed as well, please post when you have a chance.

Not a big deal at all. The hole you need to drill out is nearly big enough to take the rod, so it's really not much you are taking out. Here's a pic, not a close-up, but you get the idea.

So you must be the Ken from NY who placed the review on their website huh?

Yup, that was me. The installation took all of about 15 minutes. I was impressed. Hope I never need to test them though!
