I am still a newbie. I just picked up my first bike a couple of months ago; used 02-R6. I was wondering if this was normal. For some reason, I have 2 frame sliders on the right side of my bike and one on the left? I showed a guy that works at the dealership and his response was; "What kind of Mickey Mouse $#^t is that"? He said that one slider was mounted into the swing arm something and that it might cause problems. What do you think?

I bought one on Ebay a year ago for my '04, but was too lazy to install it (plus, I didn't have the right socket to fit the large a$$ nut...)

one question: why is it called a clutch slider if it's NOT on the clutch side?

Is there a way to install one on the left side in the hole just above my shift lever so that my bike feels even (in my head)?

That is where the clutch is...you're thinking about the SHIFTER, which is located on the left side.

that is where the clutch is. follow the cable from your handlebars and you will see.

Just to clarify, when I said "shift lever", I was refering to the lever above your left toes; not the one on the handle bars.

Maybe I'm getting my terminology wrong...

Shifter: Left foot
Rear Brake: Right foot
Clutch: Left Hand
Throttle: right hand

Are those correct? it's too dark to go outside and follow the clutch cable down to the engine. maybe tomorrow.

Your mistaken bro. The slider is for the clutch casing not the cluth lever or shifter. That weird though I've never seen it, but these guys say its normal so hey.

There are many different types of sliders. Some people even put cages on their bikes. If it's something you don't want or need just remove it.

Just to clarify since this seems to be a problem:

The Clutch Lever is on the left handlebar.
The Clutch (as in clutch plate and other working components) is down low by your right foot. There are no clutch controls in this area.

Hope this helps. This is what it looks like under my clutch slider. It seems to have some sort of huge socket-looking bolt on there with a drilled hole for the attachment bolt. Hope this helps.
