This purchase is for a complete protection kit for the above bike model that includes frame sliders, front & rear axle sliders, case covers, and free spools. 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 and the slider puck is bolted onto it. The brackets are designed to wrap around the frame preventing them from rotating in the event of a low side. The brackets are braced together by a crossbar in order to increase its strength. The material of the puck is 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 frame sliders 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. For the front axle sliders, the replacement nut is made of 304-grade stainless steel for strength and rust-resistance. The long bar is made of billet aluminum. 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.
