Sliders for GTR
« on: April 13, 2018, 10:44:08 AM »

Fitted the sliders but not to happy with the way they fit .
The one side is OK but the LHS is pants , it catches on the lower fairing .It hits the caphead and I am thinking of putting a countersunk in it's place .
Has anybody else fitted these ?
They weren't cheap at $174 ?
Also put up a pic of the bike back to bare red . Hope upside down likes this one better than that monstrosity with all the decals which did look bad , I have to admit  :o

I'm sure I read a thread on here spit by someone else who fitted them and they also hit the fairing. If i remember correctly they trimmed the fairing to allow them to fit. I'm with you, I'd find another way of modifying the slider/bracket than trim the fairing.

I did send them an email telling them they did not fit and they just told me they had no complaints and they were fine  >:(
I just sent them a link to this thread so hopefully they get back to me and suggest a solution.
If it was cheap Chinese shit , all well and good and you get what you pay for but these were expensive and they said they WOULD fit a Hyosung GTR .
When you pay $174 for sliders , you shouldn't have to modify them to fit especially when they were sold as Hyosung GTR sliders .

Did you get a photo of them on the bike without the fairings on?

It might be worthwhile checking the fairing brackets to see if they are lined up properly or "tweaking" them slightly to give you a few mm clearance.

The fairing would have to move almost 1/2" forward to clear the bolt and bracket and there is no room to move it .
The side fairings screw onto the top left and right fairings which are screwed to the headlight bracket on the frame . There is no movement in that .
the measurements are out for the slider bracket , simple as .
It's already distorting the left lower fairing as it is .
If I can't modify it , I'll remove the sliders .
Edit. Just checked again and it's not just the cap head , it's the whole bracket that's pushing the fairing out .You would have to die grind a lot of fairing off to get it to fit . I think I'll take them off , sliders that is .

Well bit the bullet and chopped over half inch off the LHS lower fairing  :o
Shouldn'y really have to do that with sliders costing so much but what can you do .
Any , pissed off I had to take them off again for a 2 minute job with my weapons of choice . 2 grinders , one with a grinding disc and other with a cutting disc . Lazy or what  ;D
Doesn't really notice so no big deal really but you see how much out it was from the pic so no amount of 'tweaking" would have done it .

oh i remember you were asking about these, i think these are the ones you want.
have to double check the bracket but the caliper i know is right.
I dont know why the australian website doesn't list them no more, i got one from them on special new for $100 including bracket and my other one i got 2nd hand on fleabay for $25 complete bracket, line, etc...

That certainly is a lot to remove your right.

I'd rather weld the sliders to the frame than cut the fairing. The whole point of the slider is you do not damage the fairings... You've just done that.

Welding anything to a motorcycle frame/tubes is a no no in my books . If I saw a bike for sale with ANY after market welding on it , I would run a mile .
Anyway , just seen these  sliders on Fleabay and they are about $100 cheaper than the ones I got even though they are exactly the same  :o .
It's not ideal cutting the fairing but if you are careful , you wont even notice .
I would fit these and cut the fairing again if need be .
They are good sliders and I can vouch that they do in fact work very well .
