I bought my bike with these things bolted to each side and can't figure out what they're for. Doesn't look like frame sliders would fit in/on them. Can anyone identify what these are and what they're for?

Looks like a set of frame sliders. They're in the right spot, too. Someone had access to a lathe/ mill, is my guess. Aluminum?
Looks good.

They are aluminum, but if they are frame sliders, they are the strangest frame sliders I've seen. I thought maybe some type of attachment for an engine guard, but I can't find anything resembling this.

I've never seen anything like them, but what other purpose would they serve? Mebbe those cross-plane holes are deer whistles.... :whistle:
They look good, to me.
I'd roll with em. Dunno if any more frame sliders are currently available for the 919. Love the one you're with, imo.

Hello,

Yes, they are the original Honda Access Engine Guard for the CB919. P/N: 08P53-MEJ-800A & 08P53-MCZ-800A. The first part number is for CB1300, it includes more hardware, you can discard that hardware and use the rest to fit your CB900.

Are both sides the same length?
Is the frame on Euro bikes factory-threaded to accommodate?

Hello rufftup. Yes, both sides are the same lenght. Also, Honda (Canadian and American) did not offer that accessory in their catalogue. It was available in Europe and Australia only. I got mine from David Spare Parts in the UK when I bought my bike back in 2007.

Outstanding and impressive you knew about this. It's a neat setup, replaceable sliders without unbolting from the frame. I can see using this setup if I were doing track time but that's not my thing besides, that is a bit much for frame sliders. But I'll keep them on and use them to clamp my GoPro for the super-sexy tire-meets-road footage.

And for rufftup, I am planning an oil change but time and it's darn hot outside is a factor in my procrastination. K&N Filter with Valvoline motorcycle full synthetic oil should do the trick.

No, the frame need to be tap. If I remember well it was 10mm x 1.25. Everything was explained in the instructions manual (the drilling, tapping, etc..)

Odd. The alternator cover has more projection from the bike than the clutch basket. The Motovation sliders measure 3 1/2" on the right, while the left measures 4 1/4".
You currently have these Euro sliders on your bike??

With the lack of availability for other slider options, I'd prolly plunk down for the full set. $250 sounds like a lot, but it could get waay more expensive if the bike went down. I'd rank sliders as neck-in-neck with a center stand on the list of must-haves. Those pucks would get a coat of black paint, however.
