Proud new owner of a 07 919... what about these frame sliders

Hello everyone been lurking around here for a month or so and decided to just buck up and go get me a 919. Actually good thing I did because I bought the last one Pete's Cycles had! Anywho, I want to put a set of frame sliders on this pony and am unfamiliar with them as I have been riding old UJM's. I definatly want frame mounted sliders, not case mounted. Is replacing the engine mount bolt with the frame slider mount bolt a frame mounted slider??? I found these things on ebay is this what i'm looking for? Any input is greatly appreciated.

919 Frame Sliders Honda 900 900F CB900F CB919 Hornet:eBay Motors (item 390140306674 end time Jan-13-10 17:32:31 PST)

Welcome Joe and congrats on your new bike. Great bike, you will love it.

These are the sliders I got.

Motivation Sliders

The ones you listed look like the ones that mount on the engine tab, which have cause the breakage of the engine tabs.

See Mr Mike's 919 Page and scroll all the way to the bottom

I also recommend the Motovation sliders for the 919. These are the units that go through the frame and are NOT bolted to the engine case.

Do a bit of searching and read previous threads on 919 frame sliders (you probably have already).

the above posters bring up great points but,imho the slider is not the problem. the mounting locating location is the issue. if you buy those, also go to hd/lowes/hardware store and buy a 10mm/3/8" piece of all thread. open the frame hole up to 3/8 like motovation says and bolt the sliders on.
total cost w/sliders should be less than $40 incl. slider,shipping,all thread, drill bit, 2 nuts.

Howdy, I can definately advise you to NOT mount the Ebay sliders going by what is written in the instruction sheet! They made a hole in my 9er's engine case by pulling the mount right off the block.
drewvir has given you great advice and the correct way to mount these sliders.

If you want to do it right, get GSG. They're a quality German made item, and little more money. They have 2 mounting points. All the cheap ones have 1.

Better yet is the GIVI "cage". If you're interested in what the GIVI looks like, ask Nemo or Murpy, I'll bet they'd post a pic for you.

If neither of those turn your crank, I'll make you a deal on a Circut One alt cover that I have for sale.

yeah... i need to genetically engineer stronger more resilient kittens....

but the testing is sooooo soul scarring.... you try standing there with a box full of kittens taking them one at a time and dropping cinderblocks on them to measure things like "spongyness and compression factor before bursting"....

i guess i could wrap them with electrical tape.....

duct tape is easier to work with

Thats a great idea at about half the price.

Nothing wrong with the Ebay Sliders, just the mounting location.

Welcome JJ. Where are you in MD? I live in Catonsville, just west of Baltimore.

So Pete's is all out of 919s? Back in September a salesman there told me they had 10 new 919s and one used one. Only 2 were in the showroom though. I think the used one was still there on Saturday.

I picked up a used '07 919 in September. We'll have to hook up sometime.

Yeah, I suspect they have a few left but no matter. You were happy to buy at whatever they were asking and you got a great, brand new(?) bike - with a warranty.

They did have a used one though - might be the one you saw.

I'm very happy with mine. I bought it back at the end of September so haven't had a lot of seat time yet.

Now we just need this crappy weather to take a break!

Awesome! Did you get it in Bel Air, or in Baltimore?

I bought mine from Pete's in Bel Air, let me know if you're in the area.

Just thought I'd chime in with a pic of my Hornet that also has the Givi crash cage on it. I'm much, much happier having his than sliders personally!

Will the GIVI crash bars protect the tank and rear exhaust from damage in a simple fall over or drop in the garage or driveway??? I've read a few posts that suggested the Motivation Sliders will provide this protection, but many they look awfully short. The crash bars *appear* to stick out a bit more. I'm extremely careful when I ride, but even then I've been known to accidentally drop the bike in the garage when I thought the kickstand was down and it wasn't....thankful I had engine case guards on that old bike...kept the bike from any harm.

if you want real protection get the bars...
