Frame Sliders on 2006 GSXR 600

Has anybody installed frame sliders on a 2006 GSXR yet? I am going to be getting mine soon and was wondering if I am going to have to cut my fairings in order to install them.

Looks like the left you'll have to drill.


You should be OK on the right side.

Im going to tape it with masking tape first and depending on how big of a hole I need either dremel or drill with circular bit. But I am going to tape it so I don't put any unnecessary scrapes in the paint. And other ideas please post.

I used the tape at first just to find it got in the way. I was worried the paint would chip, that's why I used it. It didn't. What kind of slider did you buy, or gonna buy. I'd start by drilling a small hole (1/2 inch or so) as close to the center of the engine mount screw and working from there. i did my circle free hand and it didn't come out bad at all. I was very proud.

That's what I have now. With those you may actually be able to mount the metal base and then drill and find the center of that and work your way out. Since the slider is as wide as the metal base, you should have no problem making a perfect circle.
