Armor bodies and woodcraft slider questions

Hey, two quick questions for you guys. I just put on some armor bodies race fairings on my 2007 R6. I also bought some woodcraft frame sliders. It looks like I will have to do quite a lot of cutting to install the sliders. I also have gbracing case covers and eti tank covers.

1) Should I cut the fairings and install the sliders or just go without frame sliders? I could always sell the woodcraft sliders.

2) My tail still moves around (up and down) a lot after the install. I think I need a bolt on the top side of it to keep it stationary and not flapping in the wind. Any idea how to mark and drill this properly. Its not pre marked at all.

Thanks for your time and suggestions.

-Matt

here is my bike - 2006 with ab fairings and wc sliders. not much cutting. Only about a 2" diameter hole saw needed. And tail will move still. Not completely stable but it won't go anywhere

Re: Armor bodies and woodcraft slider questions

As for your tail section, mine did the same thing... What I did was use the mounting hole on the subframe used for OEM fairings and I drilled a hole in the top of the tail and put a DZUS fastener through that hole. Works like a charm! I can post a picture later today if you want.

Re: Armor bodies and woodcraft slider questions

How do you mount a tail cam if the tail flops around? An oversight during design to leave out a bolt spot at the end of the subframe so it dont flop around?

I'm not sure, but my sharkskinz did the same thing.. I just kinda eyeballed it, then drilled the right size.. then put on a DZUS clip, then put the fastener in position, boom. 15 minutes.

I've seen buddahson's ETI sliders and they seem legit, better than the Traxxion stick on types.

I might get a set if I get my Z-Fi TC/QS sold along with some nice tires.
