Hey all, I know these have been hard to find for some people. Thought this would be helpful.
RnG has been out of stock for months, but I did find the RnG sliders at design corse for the same price. (166£ or 291usd). It took approximately 20 days to receive them but they have arrived. I just be aware that the sliders for the RC models are different.
I will update with a review of the product soon.
Stay up. :f4:

Can you take a picture of the sliders out of the box, or installed on your bike without the firings please? I am wondering how they are engineered. Let's say you have a lowside, what prevents the slider from rotating and scratching the frame?

I have inquired with R&G and they have sent me some info and installation instructions that were completely useless.

Sliders installation

Im having problems uploading photos of the installation. There is a spacer which fits between the trusses of the frame which prevents the mounting bracket from rotating. In my opinion the sliders will be effective so long at you sufficiently tighten all bolts. Hopefully I won't have to find out.:ahhh:

Installed pictures without the side fairings would tell a thousand words :)

I have tried another set of sliders before and the design would damage the frame if I was ever to test them. Took them off.

image upload no compression



Here are some pictures of the install. You can see the anti rotation spacer which sits in the frame truss. Also included is a picture of the lock washer which prevents the slider puck from rotating. (Theoretically speaking). Hope this is helpful

Thanks.
Interesting. Wish they'd been available few years ago and saved me cutting into my panels. Oh well at least they're available now.

Great! Thanks for the pictures!

So looks like the "rotation spacer" is a metal piece, which will hit the frame in an event of a crash. The main mounting plate will also hit the frame when the puck hits the asphalt. You are basically saving the fairing but scratching the frame.

R&G designs are normally pretty good and it looks like any no-cut slider is a big compromise.

Easier to touch up the frame than the fairing....provided doesn't dent the frame.
Is there any room to squeeze in some rubber type protection between rotation spacer and mounting plate and where they are likely to come into contact with the frame?

Yes the spacers are metal and probably would slightly scratch the frame in the event of a crash. However, there is space for some rubber shims. Good idea
