prototype frame sliders

after searching everywhere for these and coming up with few results, and the cheapest i found them is over 450$, i decided to make my own. here are the prototype pics, they're only machined out of plastic and wood just to see how they're gonna come out. i'll post more pics when the aluminum finished version comes out.

here is the main bracket that mounts to the frame, the holes are going to be bigger and the spacers aren't finished yet,



and here is the puck and the piece that the puck mounts to


i was thinking of making a few sets, let me know what you guys think positive or negative, this is just the first step and after these i wanna make some for the 3rd gens and for other bikes as well. all pieces are cnc machined.



here is the logo i made to be machined into the bracket that mounts to the frame,

Those look great. Best of luck with the fab. I got a 3rd gen and would be interested in these.

i'd be very interested as well in a set for a second gen once done

At its core, the Ninja ZX-10R is a motorcycle built for the accomplished rider who can fully appreciate its capabilities--whether put to the test at a racetrack, or merely the focus of bench-racing conversation. It is, by all standards, the embodiment of the ultimate superbike.

First off I give you mad props! They look REALLY good. But I do have one concern/observation. You have them set with the point pointing forward. Would that make it more susceptible to catching by digging in while sliding and make the bike flip?

I saw those WAYYYY back when the '06 came out and they were crazy expensive and not available in the States. You did an awesome job on making them yourself! They look just like the OEM ones I saw.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

are you making these on a CNC machine?? If so you should sell them on Ebay. I would buy them for my bike.

the face of the puck is shaped like the bottom of a boat, so it wont dig in, at least not as much as a mushroom style slider. hopefully....

Hell, when you have some pm me the price shipped to 28303. They look awesome. Maybe they would be less likely to catch if the point pointng forward was a bit rounded off at the top where the slider would make contact first when it hits the ground. I'm just talking about the top of the point. I wish you luck.
