8 inches? Make sure you get some REALLY strong bolts, im sure someone else can maybe throw some more info in but if theyre going to be that long and bolt into your engine mounts then they will most likely bend :/

Sorry about the spelling, i was sleepy. But the part were the fairings stay attatched at, the hole you screw the bolt to hold the fairings in place.

Keep in mind the longer that slider is, the more leverage it has to snap off/bend that part of the frame. That's why cages work... they disperse the force out to many mounting points.

Also, you want something that'll slide easily on pavement, not dig into the ground causing the bike to flip around. That's why plastic is better, unless it's a gradual dome shaped piece of metal.

You're better off buying some slider pucks, or universal looking sliders.
Maybe one of these with your own hardware?

The T-Rex sliders on my 650r are obnoxiously long (but expensive because of the bracket), maybe these would work?

also, look up where your frame sliders actually can go.... my guess is, if theres a bolt hole that is just there to hold a fairing, then the metal behind it is not that strong, quick way to crack your frame, homeboy.

If you cant afford a crash cage dont get into stunting.

However if you insist find some bmx pegs and use grade 8 or higher bolts.
