I had a expensive set of Japanese made "BabyFace" sliders on my NC700X. When I hit an oil patch on a corner, lost the front and low sided at 50mph, the only damage was a nick in the front of the front fender, scratches on the bar end, brake lever and mirror, Light scratch on my peg, and very light scratches on end of my exhaust. The slider literally saved me a good $1000. I was able to order a single new slider, do a little filing and touch-up painting and was literally good to go.
Probably should have mentioned that I have the 2016 model with 2km on it. I'd like to have everything ready before the season starts, but sliders for the new model are hard to find without alteration to the fairings.
Frame sliders from the same eBay store in Hong Kong are available for my 2017 CBR500R ABS for $56 so I ordered them today and they already shipped. I'll post pics when they are installed by the end of May.
I'm a newbie.... always had custom bikes, but now I have a CBR500R 2016.
Let me ask something ? Sorry if it was already commented, but within 21 pages I couldn't find something about this doubt.
Frame sliders should protect the bikes absorbing the impact, right ? But there are a lot of sliders that are not well designed and on a crash it could even bend the engine or something crucial on our bike, since it may work like a lever.
I't want to put a slider on my bike, but didn't do it yet since I want to find the right one. The one that will protect the bike fairings and not damage any other thing than itself.
I personally prefer loose some fairings than have a bigger problem on a crash.
What to you think about these posted earlier ? The prices are somewhat good, comparing those here, in my country.
So my rear wheel is all the way to left. I'm assuming its frane damage since it's not lined up. I was wondering since it's the rear tire if I only have to replace the rear frame or also the main aswell or other things I can do I found the rear for $60 and the main for $300 . What are your guys...
Hey everyone, last fall I bought a 19’ 500R, rode it about 700 km’s (haven’t had the first service yet), then winterized it myself in December (put it on stands, stabilized the fuel, put the battery on a tender, cleaned and lubed the chain etc. I didn’t change the oil or get into the engine at...
Help!! I haven't used this forum before but I have tried and failed to get information on any device that will either turn off my turn signals automatically or give me a warning (buzzer). I tried the STS system but it didn't work (authorized mechanic attempted the install). I have a 2017...
I'm still having issues with this bike being so low to the ground. I gained about 1.5" doing the GSXR 750 rear shock swap and putting on a proper size rear tire (PO had a smaller rear tire on it for some reason), but I'm still dragging peg pretty regularly. I took the bolts off the bottom of...
