Opinions on these frame sliders, 05 Katana?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...TQ:MOTORS:1123

Hey all,

I've been having trouble locating any frame sliders at all for my 05 Katana 600...starting to think no one makes any.

This guy is selling them on ebay for 80$+ and they are all I can find.

Opinions?

Maybe someone knows where I can get a quality set for my bike, if you have any ideas I'm all ears.


Thanks!

I have an 2000 and never installed any. I did have to replace the r/s from a nasty happening. The left side was damaged when someone rode my bike without permission into a curb at 35. In all honesty did't do alot of damage to the plastics.

Since the steel frame is visible, you could drill and tap directly into that through the vent hole. we're not talking about an aluminum frame that would require some support.

Barely see the damage on the l/s trim
Opinions on these frame sliders, 05 Katana?

Thanks Cal for the comments.

I went ahead and put a bid in since I can't seem to find anything else out there.


Let you guys know how well they hook up once I get them on, assuming I win the auction.

Oh I see... Its a clamp that goes around the frame....

But it says it uses stock handle bar ends for the sliders (not included.)

Interesting idea as mentioned for 'protection from dropping' but Im weary it may not protect during a lay down.... But some protection is better then none.

From what I gathered of the guy's description it is just the clamp yes and then you can mount any 6mm threaded bar to it, so that does seem to give you a lot more options.

Hope this is the shizzle, he offered to end the auction early so I went ahead and bought em
