NEW Motovation Sliders

All the threads on sliders that I could find on here were from 07 and such. So I got a set and installed them this morning. For the Record, there is now, one lock nut, one locking washer, then a hat style nut and washer(it has that lil brim on it with the grooves to help it lock to a washer better). The lock nut is a 17mm and the "hat" style nut is a 15mm. The rod is a stainless steel rod with threaded ends, and is 10mm. Installation went smoothly, it took under a minute to drill each hole and I put the right side on first with loctite and slid it through to the left side. Then I put the left slider on with the washer held inside by me holding a socket extension up against it to get it onto the threads. It took me about 15 minutes then to realize that this nut is a 15 and not a 17. It is possible to put these on with one person I just layed infront of the header with a socket on each nut and tightened. I don't understand the point of torquing these nuts as they are just going through the frame and do not replace any engine mount so I just tightened them with a half inch rachet.

For some reason the attachements won't let me attach pictures, I might have to take pictures again with my camera set up for taking smaller files. blah. Hope this isn't something already up on here, I couldn't find anything.

Actually, the "tie-bar" option has used that nut/washer combo for quite some time now. What you described is exactly what mine came with back in '06. It's a good system

Man, I wish my drilling went as easily as yours did. I ended up buying 2 25/64 bits, breaking one 3/8" drill bit, and it took me multiple tries over a couple days. They look really nice though. Hopefully I'll never get to test them.

One side was very quick & easy.
Drilling the other side was a stone bitch. I took me a couple hours and a couple drill bits.

wow i just grabbed a drill bit out of my pops gigantic snap on box and two minutes later i was putting the bit back in. I know that bit set wasn't cheap, as he was a machinist before he retired and brought his toolbox home.

The part the sliders bolt to is a casting that is welded to the square frame tubing. Sometimes the weld intrudes into the area that is drilled. This weld material id very hard and difficult to drill.

I have a small machine shop and a set up for anodizing aluminum. On my '04 919 I want to put on frame sliders like these. They are two different lengths, right and left. Could someone tell me their lengths. Now all I have to do is pick a colour.

Aluminum sliders are the last thing you'ed want. To high a drag coefficient. In fact, you would have to change the name from "sliders" to "augers"!

Honda 919 Frame Sliders
I'm confused on the size of the nuts on the 10mm threaded rod. When you go to Honda 919 Frame Slider the instructions say to use a 12mm socket to tighten the nuts. You canít put a 12mm nut on a 10mm threaded rod. But then Joe said that there was a 17mm on one end and a 15mm on the other. I think I'm going with a 3/8' S.S. threaded rod and 9/16 nut on the ends. Also, why is there a shoulder shown on the inside of the slider, that would just make it weak at that point? Honda 919 Frame Sliders
