Frame slider installation help required
« on: 02 June, 2020, 08:07:03 PM »
Hi:

I just purchased the following frame sliders (crash bungs?) online, and need some advice installing them, as they came without instructions. I checked YouTube, and couldn't find anything:

https://www.amazon.ca/Sliders-Motorcycle-Fairing-Protectors-CBF1000/dp/B016E50STM

To wit:

- the kit came with 2 different length bolts, 1 spacer (???), two washers, two lock washers, and two frame sliders of unequal lengths (???)

- where does the spacer go?

- which side gets the longer slider?

- is the correct order slider, washer, lock washer, new bolt, with the spacer thrown in there somewhere for good measure?

Help!

With kind regards, and thanks,

Herb Kruschke

P.S. I really only want them for highway pegs, as crashing isn't an option.

Hi Herb
i have never fitted any crash bungs but
looking at the picture on the link
i would put the lock washer on first then
the flat washer then the short crash bung followed
by the spacer then fit to the bike and see which side
it  fits the best.
  Have you ever had the engine mounting bolts out as
i seem to remember reading on this forum that they can
be well sezied in and can snap or bring the threads out with the
bolt. on my bike i took them out at 2 years old  and they were
a bit tight due to corroded threads.

Hi, Malc:

Thanks for the prompt reply!

I got a new back tire installed a few days ago, and showed the guy at the desk the slider kit. He strongly suggested supporting the side I'm working on with a jack, which I thought a good idea, but the rusty bolt tip is even better. I will hit them with Liquid Wrench before starting, and take it nice and easy.

I'm hoping the clouds will part when I take off the first bolt; one's obviously shorter than the other on the bike, and I plan on stacking stuff on there (in the order you mention) until I get exactly the same length sticking out as the original bolt.

Thanks again,

Herb
