On the right side of my 08 R6 the frame slider is in place but the bolt that holds it in place keeps spinning. It is tight but the thing keeps spinning. Did I screw something up?

Take it out & check the threads.You may have stripped it!Is it mounted directly to the block or is there a bracket between the two.There may be a nut thats turning & keeping the bolt from tightening, that or its stripped.

Mine wouldnt thread yesterday after having to reinstalling them. Check the threads, try threading the bolt without the slider to make sure everything works.

It does do that. I have R+G sliders on mine and they have a spacer in them so the bolt is tight but the crash bung will turn around. Normal stuff mate. Check it out and don't overtighten it.
