OEM frame sliders

Has anyone been able to locate an installation video for the OEM frame sliders?

I haven't come across an install video

Reviews on those are hit or miss. They don't offer too much protection if the bike falls over, they attach directly to the fairing (and require a hole be drilled) and they're just hollow plastic

There's better options out there for around the same price.

I didnt find any vidoes when installed them. If you follow the instructions, they are more than enough. All you need to do is remove the fairings and used a drill or plastic reamer. There is an X where the holes need to go.

I dont think theyll do much, but i still bought them anyway. I liked how they looked compared to other sliders.

I purchased them for the unique look also , I just wanted some basic protection in case I lapsed in judgement one day and forget to put the kickstand down. Anyway , as far as those holes go , I'm not seeing any X's on the right faring , I haven't checked the left yet but I'm guessing they should be present on both. My main concern is drilling the correct spot , can you provide some insight where exactly those X's are? The diagram isn't to " pinpoint " , especially when you can't even locate the X's.

OEM frame sliders

When was ur bike made. Mines from 1/15. Newer ones may not have have the X.

If the fairings are still off, can u post a picture? The X isnt huge or very noticeable. Its just a slightly raised molding in the inside if the fairing.

One X will be about 3 inches below the yamaha sticker. The other will be on the black piece in front of the blinker. It should be in line with the other X

Not sure if itll help, but heres an up close shot

So i managed to locate them after taking off the original faring , seems like they weren't present on the replacement which might make your conclusion of them not being on the newer bikes. Anyway , should be good from here.

Guys - just wondering if these secure solidly? They look like they protrude a bit from the fairing - do they vibrate, buzz, or move around at highway speed?

I haven't noticed any problems with them. I don't feel any vibrations or wobble. When i installed them, i made sure everything was tight, but not so tight it would crack the fairing.

Ive only had them installed for 200 miles though, so nothing long term.

If you don't hit the track you don't need sliders. People put them on because it looks "trick." So instead of worrying about your sliders vibrating on the highway, just don't put them on. But it is your bike, so I won't hate. Buuuut, if I were you I'd spend my coin on something else, like stainless steel brake lines.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast.

my bike came with these already installed, 8 months and 600 miles later I can report no buzzing, wobbling or loosening. I think these may offer a little (very little) protection at low speed slide or bike tipping over in parking lot. But, don't kid yourself, these are in no way the equivalent to the sliders TST, Graves or even "no-cut" Shogun sliders.

BTW, it's a well known fact that the red/white R3s are the fastest
