How do I install frame sliders?

I know the basics - take the engine mount bolts off and put the slider on, one side at a time. I also know which bolts I am supposed to be removing.

How do I get the bolt off and get the slider on?

What tools do I need? (pics please thx)

Sliders are 10mm x 1.25 pitch x 80mm.

I'm sitting here staring at the bike and can't figure out how to get the bolt off. I don't want to damage or strip anything. I have some tools but not sure if the right ones. Do I need a torque wrench?

Clearly I am not the handy-woman I thought I was.

Assistance please appreciated thx.

Yamaha FZ6, no cutting involved. Just don't know how to get the bolts off and sliders back on. I'm sure its extremely basic and I am having a brain fart.

What is anti-seize?

I know the specs call for 40lb but I don't have a torque wrench. Hoping a friend has one I can borrow.

I would imagine it's pretty similar to when I installed mine on the R6. Just need a socket set and maybe a torque wrench and your good to go. Those bolts might require a bit of force thought to get off. If your on the northside and need some help just let us know.

yes you are correct, I was thinking of a hex key. I believe mine is a h8 size for the slider bolts.

ya, i dunno about the fz6 for sure, but i know my r6 was just a large hex bolt, i would think thats pretty standard across the yamaha models though.

Sorry for the bad quality pics.

My friends just stopped by and said I don't have the right tools. At least I don't feel dumb now thinking I just couldn't put the shapes together like a 2 year old.

A hex key, yeah, that's what I think it is that I need and the set I have is too small.

I need a bigger hex key and a torque wrench. And then how do I get the sliders on? the torque wrench?

Almost full 750ml bottle of Canadian Club whiskey to first person to respond that wants to come put them on for me please thanks. Near Pearland.

Hmm. From the looks of it the stock bolt there needs a hex key to take off, the one that goes in the slider and then the same place where the bolt was removed, looks like it just needs just a hex socket, maybe an extension, and a torque wrench.

I'm sure you tube would have something, but you are correct thusfar on bolt removal and replacement. Antiseize agent is a compound to prevent thread damage in the future from rust or oxidation build up.
