Did a coolant flush, gotta replace the intake tube as the top two nuts have broken the plastic so the tube sags. Ugh another 2-3 weeks waiting for parts

Putting the stock tire back on the bike - bozo I bought it from had a 190 on it, worn all the way in the center. Did not turn well.

Dropped my forks flush and put the rsr rear link. Not quite sure if I need to do anything to the stock r shock length or not yet. Anyone have pointers for the rsr link? I got it second hand, but it seems there's not many of out there since they are expensive new.

Sato Racing Sliders - Finally

Installed:
Sato Racing frame sliders



Sato Racing engine sliders




Sato Racing fork sliders


Sato racing swingarm spools


I got Sato Racing bar ends and inner weights. Will install once I figure out how to take out the stock ones
Any help??
By the way, has anyone tried the inner weights? Any difference?

Cheers & ride safe

What a coincidence! I was just debating whether or not I should get the R&G Aero sliders or the sato sliders.
Any reason you chose Sato?

Well first and foremost I like the way they look; So many opinions on sliders out there...
I like the Delrin plastic they use. Feels very slippery and that's what you want form a crash slider. Some manufacturers use hard rubbers and for some reason I always imagined these will catch on the pavement and flip the bike in a crash... But that's just my imagination and probably not very scientific...
So basically i chose these because they have an excellent finish and I liked the way they looked on the bike... and the fact that I fount the whole matching set

Hope this helps

Thanks for the input - The Sato sliders definitely look a bit better than the R&G
I think your logic is pretty sound regarding catching on pavement, but I don't track so I could be wrong.

I guess if I don't track either one of them will do just fine?

Finished the reflective red honeycomb printed vinyl wrap on my lower fairings...took about 2 hours per side since reflective vinyl is nearly impossible to wrap...
It's difficult to tell from the photo with the sun, but the base reflective vinyl color is a near perfect match to the red on the tail frame. It also has a matte laminated finish to match all of the other matte surfaces. Now on to the next mod!
