    Projekt D Sliders

    Here are some pics of the Projekt D sliders installed. One tip when installing them: in addition to removing the two 6mm hex key bolts that you're going to replace with the Projekt D ones, remove the other two 6mm bolts (in red) and the two 4mm bolt (upper green) on the other side of the engine guard and the 4mm bolt that holds that plastic side piece (lower green) and then loosen the 12mm bolt (blue); loosen them each a little at a time. Removing all of the bolts is the only way that you'll be able to re-align the engine guard so that all 6 hex bolts can be threaded. It's one of those "one bolt at-a-time" re-installs. Keep them all loose and then when they're all in after adjusting the guard, rotate through each one of them while tightening them progressively (like you do with lug bolts when changing a tire).

    why did you have to looosen all those bolts?When I installed mine I just took one out and started the new one then removed the other one and started the last bolt.I had no problems at all.

    Hmm...didn't think of that. I should've tried that first but stupid me, I just figured that I had to remove both of the bolts at the same time because of the stems on the base. You know, those bolt are long enough to allow one at-a-time bolting...d'oh!

    LOL! D'oh...again! Yeah, I spent like two minutes laying that dumb thing on the tank without peeling it first telling myself , "...put this thing on right because there's no second chance...and it's a stupid $30 CF sticker...get it right!..." And of course it still came out lop-sided. I'm no architect but it bugs me anyway--but not as much as the engine sticking out more to the right on the bike. I just can't get over that one...

    Thanks! I was reading your impressive list of mods and noticed that you have SS lines. I bought Galfer fr & rr lines back in early January but haven't bothered to get them installed because I bought the bike new back in early November. Do you think I'll be fine waiting until the 18k service to get them installed? I'm a casual rider who does the twisties on occasionally so I'm figuring that I can wait 'til then. I figure that I'll be putting about 8k on the odometer a year.
