*New* Sato Frame Sliders

Just wanted you guys here on Wristtwisters to be the first to know about the new Sato Frame Sliders that will mount directly to the frame rather than the engine mount castings.

Should be installing the prototypes this week & figuring out which length of slider is best for which side of the bike etc.

It's good to hear that Sato has finally decided to change the mounting position. Photos like these have been circulating the internet for quite some time.

LOS has always offered a quality frame mounted slider(crash bobbin).

Motovation followed our recommendation and redesigned their 919 frame slider after seeing these photos.

I'm sure these new sliders will be of the same top quality as other products from Sato.

The pics look like an instant write off (assuming the owner had comp coverage).

I am looking to buy a pair of the frame mounted ones very soon. I have the ones the go through the engine right now. I am scared to hell of having it tip over let alone dump during a ride. Now I have three to choose from though. Thanks for the heads up LDH.

Anybody tried rizoma sliders? They look like they come with a plate for mounting? Just checking out all the choices.

I can vouch for these frame mounted Motovation sliders, just installed a set.

You have to drill the frame holes out slightly, but not too big a deal. Just make sure you have a serious drill and couple of quality bits.

I had the old style Satos and replaced them with the LOS ones that Mike mentioned. Fortunately, the Satos were never tested before their removal.

In time Ken, gotta take some new pics and get them posted. Until then, just imagine how great your old sliders look on my blacked out '02!

Slider installation gave me a reason to buy that new high speed 1/2" hammer drill that I've been wanting, my old single speed wasn't up to the task, nor were my worn out drill bits.
