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.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.

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.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?
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.
I had them on my bike for about 2300 miles. It was one of the first things I added. Never had any problems with the mounts loosening up.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?
Yeah, I'm not gonna lie - I simply like the look of them. My "plan" is to never drop it anyway. And were I to take it to the track, these wouldn't be the sliders I'd be shopping for....just don't put them on. But it is your bike, so I won't hate.

Good to hear these actually work, I just assumed they wouldn't because they looked flimsy.I had them on my bike for about 2300 miles. It was one of the first things I added. Never had any problems with the mounts loosening up.
As for protection: they actually do a very good job. I dropped the bike on the right side, from a stand still, and the fairing didn't take any damage at all. I also managed to low side at ~25 mph on the left side. The only damage to the fairing was at the top near the headlight assembly where some material was ground off; the rear fairing also took some damage in the same manner. Sliders aren't magic anti-gravity devices; another part of the bike will always be in contact with the road if you go down.
