Frame sliders from AliExpress

I was spending some time looking at different options for engine/frame protection. I like the look of the SW-Motech bars, but didn't like the idea of adding more weight to the bike. Not to mention how expensive they are compared to sliders.

So I took a chance and for $48.00 ordered these "Ledishun" sliders off aliexpress.com"

https://m.aliexpress.com/item/330133...l.reviewList.0

It needed some modification on the right side. Used three washers so that there was enough space between the back of the bracket and the engine.

I'm pretty happy with them I think. Will see if I ever have to "use" them. Hopefully not.

I used blue thread lock on the mounting bolts.

Had to use zip ties to prevent the bracket from spinning on the left side as I tightened it down. And on the right side I used the rubber handle end of a wrench to prevent the bracket from swinging up while tightening.

I would feel more confident if there was not an "L" shape to the mounting bracket. I think the R&G ones are just straight, which is a much better idea. Those cost twice as much as these did, and I didn't really like the look of them.
