motovation frame slider installation

Hello folks,
I just bought the motovation frame slider, but I don't have the tools to ream the frame...and I don't really want to buy those tools...
Does anyone of you recommend any place in LA that I can bring my bike and the frame slider and let them install it for me?
Thanks!

Similar except there is no need to tap & thread. Just drill a clearance hole for a #10 threaded rod.

Finally I got a drill and follow the instructions to ream the frame. I can now insert the rod into the frame, and it is nicely penetrate to the other side of the frame.
It's not the end of the story...yet...
However, when I follow the instruction (http://www.motovationusa.com/Install_900Hornet.html) to "Clamp the threaded rod and thread one of the locknuts till approximately 5mm of thread is protruding.", the rod is nowhere protrude the locknut since there is a blue plastic thing on the locknut which block the rod (I attached the photo).

Do I need to do anything to remove the blue thing? As you can see in the photo, I try to remove it, but it seems attach to the locknut pretty well.

Thanks for any answer guys!

BTW, I got the drill and bit from local COSTCO (LA), a set of kawasaki powerdrill, quite handy.

Okay I'm going to recommend first that any time you need work done on your bike that you go seek out someone who knows mechanic work. Preferrably a bike shop.

That blue thing is what makes the lock nut a lock nut do not remove it!
Put it back on the all thread, take some pliers and grab the allthread in the middle and screw the nut on as per instructions. Then continue with intructions.

Thanks, I really know nothing about the mechanic work

I'll try again and definitely go to a shop if I failed...

I did it!
I had a friend hold the use the 17mm socket on one side and use the power drill on the other side to screw the locknut.
Thanks XRCajun and folks!

Wrenching

You gotta start some where. I got my start when I dropped the set screw for the points down inside the distributor on my beat up 1955 210 sedan.
