Thanks for the replies..I spoke with T-rex today. The word from their design team believes the crash guards they have for the 2006-2012 will fit the Gen 1 bikes. They did offer if I ordered and found that I could not get them to fit, they would refund my purchase and pay for shipping back to them. With no cost to me I'll give it a try. Worst case I'll return and order the "no cut" sliders.

Well it turns out that TREX was wrong...their 2006-2012 gaurds do not fit Gen 1 bikes. after receiving the frame guards a few days ago.. I decided not to install. It seems that I would have to cut about a 2 inch hole in both sides of my fairings. More then I feel comfortable doing. I called TREX and will be returning the guards in exchange for their sliders. They said they have no plans in designing gaurds for our Gen 1 bikes. Bummer..I really wanted them to fit! They are very well built guards. I'm curious how R-GAZA guards mount up since both motor mount bolts, on both sides, are behind the fairings on Gen 1 bikes.

Here are a couple of pictures that show approx. where and how large the cut out would have to be.

Now that you've seen the T-rex mounts, they have a bracket that goes on the engine mount bolts and provide the additional mount points for Gen2/3. R-Gaza similar idea.

R-Gaza has a Gen1 set..... link to their stuff...

Thanks RaYzerman..yes I knew what I was going to get from Trex. They seemed sure their guards would fit gen 1 bikes without any modding. I knew I would at least have to remove fairings to install bracked..reinstall fairings and hoped the gaurd foot would clear the opening in the fairings. It was worth a try.
I have read the threads on the RGaza guards. I also see that MC Enterprises has a set for gen 1 but seem a bit steap in price though.

And here's a quick pic of my "cut" type of frame sliders on my '05.... they use the bottom main engine bolt.
My bike already had the holes when I bought it but no sliders so I was sorta stuck with going that way... no big deal.
