Short slider options

Is this the only company that offers the short style frame sliders? This is the type that I would like to run, but I wanted to look at all of the options similar to this style before making a decision. Thanks!

No, there's other Companies that offer sliders that will fit under the fairings.

Thanks Dons. I like the idea of saving the plastic a bit too. I'll be running vented sides so I'm not going to sweat drilling them

Hmmm is that Aussie sarcasm there? Haha.

Truth be told (here come the lightening bolts out of the sky)....I'm not crazy about the Senna graphic on the sides anyway. The aftermarket vented panels will retain the same livery colors and design...just minus the "Senna" part. Plus they just seem to make sense.

No Mate, I'm just trying to figure out why you bought a Senna and then strip almost everything that makes it a Senna off the bike.
It's your bike man, do as you please, I know the feeling.
I would have thought to buy a 1000R or a 312R would have been cheaper if you were going to strip it in any case.

Very cool. Talk about having your cake and eating it too. Having a great special edition bike without the extra attention and being able to convert it back whenever you might fancy it. Will also protect those panels from damage as well.

Have you considered picking up a second set of gauges so you have more options? Save the old face.

I can appreciate that perspective and I have the utmost respect for those who purchase the bikes as collector pieces. If we're being honest, I was offered the bike at a price for far under what local 1000s and 312 versions were selling for. So it was a too-good-to-pass-up scenario of sorts.

My intention all along was to get a bike that I could ride....a lot. I have no desire to keep her on stands as a show piece. I want to ride her and make memories on her.

I'd like to think I'm making tasteful changes to her and just really making her my own. The main Senna colors will stay but the graphics will not. I have the Arrow comp system on the R1 and will be fitting the same to the MV. After that, a tune, some general upkeep, and some PP foot rests and it will be a wrap.

Precisely.

The tach needle had the "jumping" issue and I wanted to get that resolved. I will still have the old face plate.

That would drive me crazy too.... As long as you keep the original there's nothing wrong with making the bike your own..... In the future if you ever decide to let someone else enjoy her keeping the original parts and returning it back to stock will get you better resale value and make a happy buyer who hopefully will do the same thing....

As much as I love the Senna's the side panel graphics are a bit loud for my taste.... There's also a side benefit of making it slightly less attention grabbing for thieves as well....
