The moment when you get the sliders (no name brand) without instructions :(

Anybody an idea where they go?
I had a pair of those that came free with my bike in a plastic bag with no instructions. They're not hard to figure out how to put together, but be careful, the bolts are real weak and i snapped a few real easy and stripped one of the holes in the bracket . Mine ended up in the trash, it seemed the best place for them.

Okay, with your Guys help, I could figure out two of them ... two more to go :( I tried to stick the long rod through my back axle but it is not long enough. Also I received one screw nut but the rod has threads on both ends. The heck ... I should have went with a name brand!

No name frame sliders will more than likely snap off during a crash resulting in possibly more damage to your bike. I would invest in some quality brand name sliders. In some respects it's like entrusting your head in a no name helmet.

Eh, in most cases I agree, but these are just knock-offs of the original Shogun No-Cuts from a decade ago. :) Here's a link that has a few pictures installed Shogun Std. No Cut Frame Sliders for ZX10R 06-07 - SoloMotoParts.com . I have had a set of these on two different 2nd gens.

ANY frame slider can break off or bend in a crash... and they usually do.... I've tested quite a few honestly. :badteeth: The idea is to keep the frame off the ground in a minor crash or tip-over, and these do a pretty good job at that with that burly-ass bracket. Bad side is that tall guys are gonna bash their shins or knees on those fuckers at some point, guaranteed!

EDIT: Here is a .pdf link for the install instructions. :) https://moto911.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/750-4919.pdf

The long rod goes through the frame/engine mount (See circle in pic) remove the rod that's currently there. Those 2 cone looking things screw onto either end.
I wouldn't trust these in a crash though. Like i said before i snapped a couple of bolts installing the sliders and stripped the slider mounting hole. I'm betting even if the bike falls over the slider will just snap off. That's why i donated mine to a landfill.

Good luck

You are gonna have to figure out which side the long one goes on and which side is the short one. I had these from the PO on my G2 and changed em out for Woodcraft and cut my fairings - it looks dope btw and actually stock too. But just start assembling things and it should all go together. I noticed when i took mine off, that long bar was not nearly substantial enough for my liking, i could bend it over my knee if i wanted to. When i replaced it with a stock rod - because thats how Woodcraft goes together - the stock was much more sturdy. It was a little tricky taking it off just like im sure you're experiencing putting it on lol! Wish i could help more but cant remember exactly how they came apart but i thought that maybe you put the engine rod in place and just start piecing it together?? And yea, thats the engine mount rod, not sure why you tried putting it through where the axel is. Wish i could help more.

Edit - Yes! As Chris said, you will or should have to change out the rod thats currently in there for the one they supply with the sliders. A free maintenance manual should be on the forum somewhere**
