T-Rex Racing KICKS !

Ok. So, a year and a half ago, on a ride out around racers road, I lost one of my frame sliders that came with the bike when I bought it. I started searching for a set that I really wanted and came across the T-Rex Racing sliders. They had the new R1 logo cut into the sliders, looked sick and solid. (They did this for other bikes as well with the logo) I called to order and they said that because they were given a cease and desist from several manufactures, they could not sell them anymore with the logo, they now had “T-Rex claw marks instead of the logo” I didn’t really dig the look, so I kept looking for something else.
I didn’t really find anything else that I liked. Last week I decided to go ahead and order them along with their new GP spool adapters for the R1/MT-10 which use a larger/stronger bolt for the strapless tie down system I bought from them 2 years ago.
I spoke with a guy named “Duke?”. During the phone call I joked and said, “Hey and if you have any of those logo sliders in the back somewhere, I’d rather have those.” He paused, and said “Let me go check, we may have ONE set back there somewhere. He didn’t call back, so I called back the next day (Friday). “GREAT NEWS! We have ONE set left and we can paint the logo which ever color you prefer, just let us know in the comment section when ordering and be sure to let us know that you want the LOGO pucks, not the claw marks.” I said, “DEAL!” And ordered the sliders and the GP spool adapters.
Monday, I get an email that they have been shipped. I call up there to confirm they sent the right ones and a different person answered. I explained about the LOGO pucks and he stopped me and said, “Sir, I apologize, but Duke misspoke. We cannot sell those. We haven’t shipped them yet, so let me know if you would like to cancel.” I was crushed but understood. I said go ahead with the order and send me the claw marks.
The package came into day. TO MY HELLA AWESOME SURPRISE……………

Correct torque specs, because I'm not a heathen.....
(Don't mind the dirty bike, I haven't cleaned it yet from the 2 trips to the Hill Country I recently completed.)









Now for the New GP Spool adapters..

Dude, they are the . I would recommend them to anyone. adjust your chain by turning a with your fingers!

A few of my buddies had them before me and turned me on to them. Nothing but good reviews!

Connection for the 12v charger/USBC charger up front. I disconnect it when the bike sits for a period of time and I plug in the battery tender.

Keen eye.
