My sliders came in today. Great customer service & really fast shipping from these guys!!
Installation was fairly easy. Seems like a good product, though I'm not sure how well they'll hold up in a slide with any kind of speed. They're made of some kind of plastic-rubber stuff. I was expecting something a little harder. I hope I never have to test them!
Here's a couple of pictures:
This is where it mounts. Its a very solid place for mounting:
How it mounts, pretty much the same for both sides, other than the number of spacers used (3 on one side, 2 on the other):
As you can see from a couple of the pictures above, removing the lower screw from the radiator guard on both side makes this job quite a bit easier. The mounting instructions say you may have to trim the radiator guard, but I didn't have to. They touch, but not bad.
Finished with the cool "Versys" logo installed:
View from the seat:
Interestingly, the right one seems to stick out a little further from the bike, but being on the kickstand might have skewed the measurement a bit, even though I tried to compensate for the lean:
Overall I'm happy with them. I guess there isn't much out there that'll protect the two plastic side panels that go from the tank to the head light. They kind of stick out there, mockingly, as if to say, "Go ahead, lay it down. I'm the first to go... And I'm pricey!!"
