frame sliders ?

http://www.kneedraggers.com/list/5.9


http://www.cyclestuffusa.com/framesliders.html

these companies dont have sliders listed for Kats, but if you email them, they may just be out of stock..

try a search in ebay or google for katana frame sliders too.

Update..tried both of those searches..didnt turn up much for katana's though..hhmm

I tried polishing the paint off and did a good job. So I thought. Now they start to rust. If anyone has a solution for that I would try it.

Polish off the rust and get them powder coated! I have MY bike and MY WIFES bike done that way.. It wont EVER rust again once they are powder coated.. Its VERY inexpensive and can be powder coated to match your bike!

I don't know. I just consolitated all my bills and own my bike. So if I sell the bike that another 3500 or so dollars I can put towards debt. I don't ride that often and love the bike, but a backyard and my own house is more a realistic dream to me.

when you're talking about buying a house, thats something everybody dreams of in their life until they are able to achieve it. Great accomplishment!!

Unless you can really pay off something significant, be very very sure before you sell it..u know the old saying..Dont know whatcha got, till its gone. Riding can be some of the best medicine after a long day at work, or dealing with bills and the other daily grinds of life..not to mention the great days when you can just get out and ride.

Like I said I own it, so i'm in no hurry to sell her. I would love to find someone who is just starting out on a bike. I would sell it to them, for cheap. Just because I know what it is like to want a bike and not be able to afford it.
I do LOVE to ride and it is good medicine, but I would feel a ***** lot better being debt free.
If ya know anyone who would be interested(above mentioned) in the cycle let me know. I would be able to take a road trip to deliver. 2001 GSX750F Metallic Olive Silver(don't ask). If it's someone deserving I'd sell her for $3800.
Plus i'd still have the wifey to ride....LOL
