R&G Aero Frame Sliders

Hi All,

Installing a set of R&G Aero Frame Sliders on an F3 would it be recommended to apply a little blue loctite to the threats? or just nip the bolts up tight?

Chris,

If they're replacing a frame bolt to fit just torque to spec. If not a little loctite wont do any harm if that's what you feel. Should be some sort of torque spec included anyway with the kit. Makes no difference if you road test them though. The bolt will bend and come loose. I know, I've done it. They do their job though. My frame sliders were Sato and the axle sliders R&G. Both top products. Well worth fitting.

Cheers

Thanks Deano,

Really hoping I don't road test them

R&G spec say 40mn for the bolt that attached to slider to the slider bracket,it fells like the bracket is flexing and I'm only at 25nm,

I just really don't want to do any damn fitting them

Worth their weight in gold thgese sliders.
i saw a mate drop his RC 800 outside the dealers on some gravel,only broke his mirror.
i bought some on strength of this and a couple of months ago while stopping for a piss i turned round to see my bike rolling forward.
i spun round with dick hanging out of leathers and still squirting just in time to help brake its fall but it still went down with a bang.
Sorting myself out i carefully picked it up and couldnt believe it.
No damage anywhere,except to the slider itself and it even bent the fixing arm.
Worth every penny of the £149.00

I know I shouldn't laugh, but that has just made me laugh . Glad the bike was OK.

Fitted them to my RC and took them off thought they spoilt the look of the bike , I also found that on the left side the bracket sat slightly behind fairing causing the puk to rub against it so I removed because there was a chance it would crack the fairing, shame though good quality item

Hope your bike never falls over but if it does you will be well pissed off.Dont expect to get fairing panels and tank quickly.

Bought a set for my TV, Christmas present from me to me. Will probably get some front axle sliders too. With parts availability the way it is, as well as the cost, I think they'll be worth their weight in gold should they ever be called into play.

I looked at the R&G Frame Sliders for my Brutale, but didn't like their logo taking up real-estate on my bike, and the overall shape was just okay. The choices are limited but I settled on the Puig Sliders, they fit fine, and their logo is more subtle. Hopefully I will never have to find out how good they perform.

On fitting them I though they stood out like swollen dogs testicle but now I hardly notice them

R&G Fork Sliders
R&G Barends
R&G Aero Sliders
GB Racing Case Savers - again didn't like the look after installing them but have grown on me
