2019 R3 no cut frame sliders

Hello everyone! New rider just picked up a 2019 pearl white. I’ve been trying to find no cut frame sliders for this bike and Yamaha still is out of stock currently so I purchased these Chinese ones. I received them the other day and attempted to install but it seems the engine mounting bolts are the wrong thread as they do not turn in by hand. If that’s not bad enough I’m tring to figure out how exactly they assemble as no instructions come with it. Anyone else but these? Link included. Thanks!!

I’ve ordered a pair of Shogun no cut frame sliders - the kind that lack an offset bracket. They screw directly into the engine mount bolt holes and must be torqued to 49 foot pounds.

Tracking shows them arriving tomorrow. I’ll give a report. $55 w/ shipping.

There is an outfit located in Dallas, TX called T-Rex Racing that makes no-cut frame sliders for the 2019 Yamaha R3. If you search YouTube you will find videos detailing the installation and performance of these products. Link attached to the product page.

My Shogun frame sliders came today in a beautiful box. I received the two frame sliders, two stainless steel bolts w/ washers and a cool decal. I’ll put pics up soon when I am ready to tackle the project.

Those motor mount bolts are going to be tight and I need to have the right tools so as to not damage anything. Do Not try to force feed bolts into threads that do not match!!!

That’s why I bought a product from a name brand that has done their homework, providing parts that fit the specific machine. Man, if you order some cheapo Chinese generic product, the inferior motor mount screw could be the wrong size and/or fail without warning. Make sure the hardware is correct! The price savings is not worth the risk.

Look for an update this weekend.

Installed my Shogun Frame Sliders (no cut). Here’s my experience:

Box was lovely, filled with the two sliders, two long bolts, two washers and a cool decal. Everything was pristine and beautiful!

They attach directly to the engine mount bolt holes and, yes, they are the two obvious bolts to replace.

Each frame slider has a precision cut that allows them to snug up to the fairings without touching. The frame slider that has the fairing cut nearest the end is for the right side.

Engine mounts were tight but I was able to loosen them with a standard size ratchet. You are going to need an extension and a 8mm Allen wrench socket to do this. Remove the bolt and the washer.

Do one side at a time! Simply fit the stainless steel bolt into the bolt hole and snug it up. Specs call for 49 foot pounds. Funny story: a friend gave me a coupon for a torque wrench from Harbor Freight for $9.99! I bought the torque wrench and set it for 49 ft lbs. Never could get it to crack! Reset the torque wrench for 10 ft lbs and it still wouldn’t crack. Piece of junk. I just got them good and snug. I’ll try to find a real torque wrench and get it right.

Be sure to align the cuts in the sliders so they wrap around the fairings. Also, the washer goes between the slider and the frame. (Nobody really explains which side the washer goes!)Click image for larger version

These stick out farther than I expected but that doesn’t bother me. What does bother me a little is that the bolts are offset more than I want. If you are OCD this might drive you nuts.

I’m 5’11” and the sliders are out of knee range, but not by a lot. The right side is further back by about an inch. I was able to make contact with my shin while walking the bike. Still, I’m happy with them. Down the road I can foresee replacing them with something that will put the sliders in a more natural position.

My cost, with shipping, was $55. I am relieved to have protection.

@ Geddyruiz, is you bike a 2019 or a 2015-2018 model? I'm asking as, from the photos, it looks like a 2015-2018 model. The fairings are different for the 2019 model year and this affects how the frame sliders are mounted. T-Rex Racing makes two unique frame slider SKU's: one for the 2015-2018 models and one for the 2019 models (and I assume the 2020 models as well).



@ NJR3, make sure whatever you use is compatible with your 2019 R3. I was originally planning to use the Vagabond frame sliders. After a quick call to Vagabond customer support, I learned their frame sliders will not fit the 2019 model which is what I have as well.

Mine is a 2018. Yes, the 2019 fairings are completely different so I lack the knowledge of how a no cut slider set could work.

I have a link below for you.. They have no-cut frame sliders, axle sliders, and an exhaust sliders for the 2019 R3. It's on the no cut frame sliders. Just toggle back in the website to see all they have for the R3.
