Actually we do not really recommend these sliders on the F4 unless you are using race plastics.

Good luck with that and hope it works out for you.

Hi Cazadore

I will use racing fairings

the theory is that in a slide the fairing should better protect the bike's frame because it allows the bike to slide and dissipates the energy slowly (although expensive with MV fairings at around au$1500 a pop!)

where as the knob is a risk of catching and twisting the frame/engine mounting bolts.

i've seen two different approaches with this, one with a smaller bolt for the knob that threads into the engine mount bolt and
the other solution used down here was on a set of after-market fairings is fibreglass a strip of aluminium into the fairing.

i guess its a question of risk - cost or replacing the fairing VS chance or writing-off the bike
if you still intend to put the sliders on it looks like you might need to support the engine (lift it) so the holes align better
(is that a stand in the first picture?)
Hi Snohman,

I am coverting my R312 into a track bike and I want it fully protected. Maybe I should go for the one with a smaller bolt for the knob that threads into the engine mount bolt
Do you know any after market frame protector that those it ?

Thanks

Hi Fazer6

Nothing is missing here, I have the positioning washer and I didn't unbolt both of the bolts a the same time and the engine has not moved.
