Frame Sliders that Require Body Modification

I got some Vortex frame sliders for my 06 CBR... and they require my fairings to be cut. I was just seeing who all has done this, what were the steps that you did, and how did it turn out? Any advice, tips, and pics are welcome. I want everything to look really clean and I dont want to cut any corners. Thanks in advance!

Isn't there a CBR forum? Probably the best place to ask.

buy a laser pointer and something to hold it steady.

1. remove fairings
2. keep laser on (use a rubber band or anything else)
3. point laser at center of frame bolt where slider is mounted (make sure bike/laser doesn't move
4. mount fairing securely
5. mark where laser is pointing (this is your center mark)
6. drill hole with appropriate size for slider
7.repeat

get creative.

On a serious note, sell me your bike so you don't have to do it

i've heard of people using a camera stand and "rigging" the laser to be mounted on there.

put the bike on a stand so it doesn't move.

Very smart. I'll try that next time with race plastics.

I just removed the original mounting bolt for the engine and partially screwed in the longer frame slider bolt so that the head touches the inside of the fairing. I marked the fairing on the inside and drilled a small hole from the inside. Then used that small hole as the center point for my hole saw. It is best to drill with the hole saw from the outside so that the rough edges from the saw are left on the inside of the fairing.

Use a torque wrench on the new bolts. This is a very important bolt to have torqued correctly. The manufacturer performs special torsional and vibration studies to determine the correct amount of torque value on the engine mount bolt.
