Newb 2007 650r owner. Just had it for a few weeks and need some help. The previous owner installed the R&G no-cut sliders on the bike but at some point removed the sliders and left the brackets. I'd rather not pay $100 for new sliders that I can machine from Delrin at work. If anybody who has some on their bike could get some rough dimensions I would greatly appreciate it. I wasn't sure I would use them but after letting my friend ride it (and slide it on the right side) I'm inclined to put them on.

You can contact them directly and order just the pucks. Most companies do that. I did that with my Yoshimuras even thought it wasnt listed on the web page. Wodcraft, OES and a bunch f other companies all offer replacement pucks and brackets on their site.

R&G being European I'm not sure how shipping and costs would translate out. The ninja650shop.com has them listed at $49.99 PER SIDE, so $100 for just the pucks and bolts. I'm assuming it would be a similar cost getting them from R&G directly. I have access to a lathe and McMaster has Delrin and UHMW Polyetylene for pretty cheap.

You can get replacement aftermarket non-R&G frame slider pucks for fifteen bucks from the internet.

Add another five bucks for bolts and spacers, and you're done -- no fabrication required. Enjoy your twenty buck frame sliders! :)

Well I decided to just buy some UHMW Polyethylene from McMaster for $8.76/ft. I can get bolts and washers at work so I'll save a bit there as well. Found a blog that someone took pictures of their slider installation and traced the slider in SolidWorks to get dimensions. If any home machinists want to make their own R&G-knockoff replacement the print I'm using is below. Once I get the material and make the parts I'll take some pictures of them on the bike.

Got my UHMW PE a few days ago. Stayed late at work and turned it on the lathe to be similar to the print. I didn't get fancy and make the concave portion, just a 30* angle. The threads are M10-1.25 and I used an 80mm bolt with a washer. Loctite on all bolts and she's back together for a ride later.
