Do you have to cut any of the plastics in order to install frame sliders on the 03? and what are some good companies of frame sliders?

Intuitive racing kits are probably my favorite. 150 for frame, clutch, bar ends, and swingarm sliders.

Gravesmotorsports.

The cox racing ones look alot like the graves sliders, and like penfold said, check them out. Us members here also get 10% off from cox :jump

If anybody finds about whether you have to drill holes in the bodywork of the 03 let me know. I would call and talk to them myself but work is hell.

Intuitive Sliders you'll need to cut out a 1 7/8" hole or 2" on the right side. With the smaller hole, you will need to be perfectly centered as the hole is just barely bigger than the slider. Also, you may want to spend extra $$$ on Intuitive rearset sliders. I have all the sliders on my bike and when I lo-sided the rearset and frame saved 98% of my plastics!!! :jump

Hey I just adde the frame sliders from Motorvation and they are pretty easy to do. I wanted something with no cutting and these are the ones. The only thing I notice was the one on the right side will spin unless you add locktight. When adding that one you have to remove the middle faring or just bend it enough to remove that engine mount screw.

doesnt cutting your fairing defeat the purpose of having frame sliders and Bravo I didnt know you had experience with that brand next time I have a question I'll ask you first since it seems like you know so much :stupic :stupic

03r6sbk, Motovation was one of my choices for the street sliders,
yeah i was very hesitant on slicin' up the fairings so i went with
Shoguns street @ ebay. It was hard for me to find the Motovation
at that time, especially the black w/ white lettering which looks trick.

For now the Shoguns will work for me, until that time (which i hope
will never happen) i drop the bike and we'll see if the one with the off-set
holds up and not end up being bent like everyone says about street sliders. But since i don't plan on taking my bike on the tracks or doing
some high speed riding on a country road yet, for now i will stick with
the street version.

:twisted:

03r6sbk,i woz trying to say because of my wieght i'v dropped the bike while standing still four times,if yamaha have designed the bike then designed sliders for that bike and allowed there tuning fork logo to go on the sliders,then the fact that yamaha say take abit out of the fairing to fit the best possible sliders is warranted,else they wouldn't put there name to it

I HAVE THE SHOGUNS ON MY R6 03' AND RECENTLY HAD A NICE SPILL. THEY WORKED BEAUTIFULLY. MY SIDES WERE PROTECTED AS SAID THEY WOULD. PLUS I HAD THE ONES THAT REQUIRED NO MODS OR CUTTING.
