If your getting a 600rr its gonna have to be cut. If your a novice/new rider then you'll be glad he put sliders on it in a few weeks. And just so you know, bikes are for riding and not looking pretty : ) , sliders are one of the first things you should put on a bike if your going to be doing anything more than cruising the strip.

Sliders won't destroy your frame - they're designed to save it. Now they might destroy your fairings if he cuts them wrong...

Put the sliders on there. Don't go out and get the non-cut ones, because they don't do what they're supposed to that well.

Yeah I'm thinking she meant fairings....



As long as he does a nice job cutting them ,it will look great!

Your husband has the right idea. Let him cut the plastic and put the sliders on. The should save your frame and may even save the plastic from some damage if you drop the bike.

I thought i would post here instead of making a whole new thread:
What brand of hole saw did you guys use? I work at a hardware store at the moment and can get all kinds of brands - which would do the best job? I think a lot of them are made out of carbon or something.

I am gonna tackle the frame slider installation in the very near future too, so if anyone in SF bay area wants to join me let me know and we can do it together.

basic hole saw is fine. use a fine tooth and mask the area it makes contact with the fairing so it doesnt rip the decal.

use the play-doh method for determining where to drill. try to search for it.

Any holesaw will work fine if you take your time.... I borrowed my neighbors and it was a little cheap holesaw kit that he had but it did a good job.

^ What she said. If you are worried about cutting the holes wrong have the dealer do it. If they f it up, have them buy you a replacement set. Before I even took the bike from the dealer, the day I bought it I had them installed.

trust me, cut that sucka.
done right, it looks good, and they will save plenty of plastic in a low side.
there is a thread with pics of frame sliders installed, see if you can find it.

and welcome to your new addiction... .net
