Only tools you need is a hole saw bit.

No cut sliders are on a flange and will bend on impact, pending how hard of a hit it is.

look at woodcraft sliders.

no cuts have a reputation of failing if they get worked hard.

cutting fairings is not hard....just precise and nerve wracking.

drill from inside out.

I just drilled my fairings, never did it before, and it wasnt that bad. Just take ur time and make sure u find the center of the mounting bolt when drilling. Watch a few youtube videos and u will be fine. Yea only tool u need is a drill, and a hole saw... Size of hole saw depends on ur slider.

Haha, I use to do that with my oldest brother. I had him do stuff for me sometimes so if he damaged it I'd blame it on him. :crackup:

Not to hijack but what do ya guys think of the lsl sliders?? Also what do ya guys also think of the woodcraft side cover sliders?

One more question peeps.

Which style of slider is better,

the style that goes over the covers like the lsl

vs

the style that requires a hole cut like the woodcraft

I just ordered a pair of Woodcrafts from STG to replace the crappy trex sliders i have now. I keep reading the no cuts are garbage because of the excessive leverage they create which apparently snaps bolts easily and/or can cause more damage then they can save. Cut install should be simple using the laser technique.

I still think I might go with no cuts. I just want something that will not let my fairings get hit if I drop it in the garage. Are they ok for that?

Yea no cuts are fine for that. My bike was knocked over by a van when it was parked and they saved alot of plastic damage.. The frame sliders did not get bent at all, only got a few scratches on the slider.. No bolts got snapped either..

Get R&G, that's all I say. Call superbikesupply.com, they can order one for you.

Im thinking about picking some up for that...what exactly happens in a worst case senerio of no cut failure? It breaks at the mounting position right? Im trying to see if ill just buy some sliders I have to cut or not, im not worried about making cuts because im pretty handy with tools but I don't know if I want to cut the fairings or not haha.

And I can't decide between OES and woodcraft!

Worst case probably would be something gets bent or cracked in the frame maybe. Like where u put in the engine mount bolts. Whatever that is... I may be wrong..

Ill do that. Maybe I should just get cut ones for piece of mind that nothing will get bent or break. It says on STGs website that not cuts aren't for blunt impacts like kick stand falls and they could break. If it says it right on the website I guess ill stay away from them haha.

Yea its probably a good idea just in case. I think the frame sliders actually look better when u cut the fairings. Just my opinion tho. Plus u will know how to do it when its done so u can help other people..
