Hello to all .... wonderful to be back ... and with some great news ... yesterday I bought my second bike, a beautiful red and silver 2002 F41 - only 1,000 kms on it and real steal. I'm selling my 2001 Ninja 250 and am looking forward to moving up (well in class anyway) the Bike has now been lowered as low as it can (including the installation of a lowering kit) and the balls of my feet are on the now just on the ground. My big concern and what I'm hoping to get some advice on is Frame Sliders and the pros and cons of modifying the fairing to install same.
I've looked into and have investigated the types of sliders available for this bike and the type which simply screws into one of the fairing holes seems to be weak. The only other option is the type which is bolted to frame but requires a hole to be cut into the fairing itself.
Is this common? Does it reduce the actual value of the bike? Will it really help save bike? Is it worth it?
Any recommendations on which kind, what brand? Who should install them?
Any comments would be great .... I'm just so excited.....
