SOLD - Gen 2 Frame Sliders/Fairing Protectors

The previous owner of a 2008 FJR1300 AE had these frame sliders mounted. I removed them to install some police bars.

It looks like he dropped the bike at least once on the left side. The damage to the slider protected the fairings and is pretty minimal to the slider. It doesn't look like it was a slide at any speed at all because it doesn't look "scraped".

NOTICE: The bolt on the side that was dropped appears to have sheared off the aluminum threads in the frame's pinch bolt. Probably due to the shock of the fall and may have not been properly torqued. I included a close up picture of the bolt. I don't have anything that large to chase the threads, but the bolt is still good if you wanted to clean the threads. Otherwise, plan on purchasing a new bolt.

It is what it is, partially used/damaged. But, it will still keep your bike protected. If you have nothing... this is definitely better.

I have no idea of brand or original cost or if there are any differences between the generations. My Gen2 is the first FJR I've owned and it has only been a few weeks. I'm not well versed enough to answer application questions.

FREE, just pay shipping, which is $15.05 USPS Priority. I just don't want to throw them away.

The frame pinch bolt is on the right side and the aluminum in the bolt from the left side, came out of the engine block.
Thread pitch is 12 x 1.25.

To be honest, I couldn't tell you I didn't I didn't switch the bolts/sliders when I removed them. I do remember looking at and cleaning threads out of the pinch bolt, so I probably just got the wrong bolt with the wrong slider.

Thanks for the heads up!

I'm not well versed in the FJR yet. I couldn't even tell you which side the shorter slider came off!

Doesn't matter which side the bolt came out of, that aluminum shown is from the threads in the block. The bushing pinch bolt in the RH frame is a lot smaller.
I'm new to the FJR myself but just had my sliders off which are similar, and I remember.

Likely aluminum came with the thread because of bi-metal corrosion. Lube those with some anti-seize and lower the torque 20%.

The bolt with the bars was just a tad longer inserting into the block than the bolt removed. The replacement bolt was also zinced. I used copper anti-sieze and torqued per spec because I hadn't realized what had happened yet. I'm concerned about messing with it now since it is in a stable state and changing that only invites issues.

Seems to be holding without issue so far anyway. If the need arises to remove the bolt in the future I'll throw an insert into the block before replacing the bolt.
