Yah, I looked at those and although they probably work fine they just don't visually appeal to me. Not 'sexy' enough and kind of clunky. Funny because usually I go for practical, form and function instead of visual appeal (I.m very much a blue jeans kind of guy) but when it comes to my bike,,,
Thanks though.

Question to the Forum: Anybody in the Houston/Galveston area know a 'real' experienced motorcycle TIG welder/shop?

redline919 Plenty of people including myself have drilled and tapped the swing arm for spools with great success. I use them all of the time

I have seen a 919 that had dimples around a slider where the bike just fell over. Will have to research here and elsewhere on swing-arm alloy, heat treatment and if it will need to be jigged to prevent warp. Not committed to, just want to.

couldn't find them anymore on the website. might be worth calling them or emailing to see if they have a set laying around. not sure if they will make another run, I had to fight pretty hard to get this batch

BKRMON Yes, a 3/8" would be almost 47 thou smaller than a 27/64", but a 7/16" is only 15 thou larger.

How much wiggle in the rod after using the 27/64 drill bit?
12-21-2015 05:58 AM
AMerv Also, thank you to https://www.wristtwisters.com/forums/...l3it-3180.html for the installation video.

Thats pretty much how it went for me except one of the nuts had been locked onto the rod so I didnt mess with it. Maybe mototvation did it so you wouldnt have to fiddle with how far to screw it in and leave enough room for the other side. The trip to the store to get the 27/64s was a pain.

The instructions say to clamp and thread the left side locknut. It appears to be already done (and immovable).

Instructions say remove engine bolt. I dont see an existing bolt in this hole when I remove the covers unless its way down in there.

Says I need a 12mm socket. The left bolt is 17mm the right bolt is 16mm.

Since Im not seeing an existing bolt here, I somehow doubt that there is a torque setting required. Since the torque setting the dealer gave me was for the front engine mount.

Im going to "whatever" this and just put the thing on.

theboom Done. This is my entry in mod of the day club...

BTW I would throw out the directions. Need 16 mm socket (I used a deep one with an extension), 27/64s drill bit, no existing bolts in the hole, I wouldnt use a torque wrench since its only holding on the sliders.

theboom OK Stupid question #2, does anybody know what the torque setting should be? I dont even have a torque wrench. *sigh* -

I called my dealer - 37 foot lbs is the torque.

I believe its because the engine sticks on more on that side. That way in minimizes the width of the bike but still protects the engine cases

Jonstrocity Just put my order in as well! I'm glad I was able to get this going. especially for those of us who bought their 919s more recently and missed out on the original production run!!
12-02-2015 11:39 AM
ray.beard I ordered a set and got a tracking number within a few minutes. Hopefully they made enough sets to have a few floating around after the group buy.

I just checked my PMs and I didn't see one from you. I'll PM you with the email info so you can contact them and see if you can get the discount

11-23-2015 07:22 AM
Jonstrocity Not yet, but it has been 5 weeks since they told me that they are doing an additional run. They initially told me it would take around 6 weeks to get them made. So im going to try and not worry until end of next week
11-23-2015 06:15 AM
ray.beard Has anyone heard from Motovation on these sliders?
11-03-2015 08:10 PM
str8ghtjacket Great product and great company here in Austin have had quite few different purchases for numerous things and they have always been top notch. They sell a lot of different stuff other than the frame sliders. Good guys, and no I don't have any affiliation with them. Good Luck on the group buy
