Material:UHMW-PE (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene), aircraft grade aluminum
No cut or fairing modifications required
2009 - 2016 GSX-R1000
This purchase is for a set of frame sliders, engine case covers, front axle sliders, and rear axle sliders for the above bike model. The sliders feature a new design of a complete solid puck without a hollowed-out center. This increases the strength and contact surface to about 30%. The bracket is bolted to the engine mount. the spacer is then bolted to the brackets and the slider puck is screwed onto it. The brackets have two attachment points preventing them from rotating in the event of a low side. The left side brackets wraps around the frame not allowing the bracket to rotate. The puck material are made of UHMW-PE (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene), a tough plastic with good strength, wear resistance and dimensional stability. It is more dimensionally stable than Nylon and used in many industrial ball bearing and friction reducing applications. Compared to Delrin, it is softer but tougher. Delrin is harder but more brittle. It is an ideal material for slider since it can absorb more impact force onto itself and therefore reduce the impact on the frame and engine. The slider pucks can be inexpensively replaced in case of a low-side. We use highest grade commercially available 12.9(177,000 psi in tensile strength) wherever possible. Rest assured that you are getting the best material commercially available.
