Frame Sliders for 2010 c14
« on: October 16, 2010, 12:27:11 pm »
New to the Sport Touring world so bear with me.  I am looking for frame sliders that will fit the 2010 c14 and does not ruin the look of the bike.  Does anyone know if the GSG-Moto's fit with the new style fairing on the 2010?
Switched from a Nomad to a Concours this week and loving it so far!

A couple weeks ago I installed frame sliders on my 2010 C14.
http://projektd.com
1 x GTR1400 / Concours 14 '10 Full Slider Kit (103-10) = $239.00
I am very please with how they look.  All black and they blend into bike well.
Installation was very easy for the front and rear wheel sliders.  Taking the plastic body panels off was the hardest part.  Very pleased with the results.  Wish I would of put them on before dropping my Connie twice, once on each side!

I put the GSG-Moto Framesliders from twisted throttle on last spring. 15 Minutes to install no fairing mods required. Whoops! high sided the bike in September, NO DAMAGE except for scratches on the bags. They worked great for me. Ping me if you need additional.

To what do they attach?  Is it a bar that goes all the way through or does each side attach to something?

Anyone have experience with the R&G Adventure Bars?  I'm trying to decide between those and the Projekt D slider kit.  If anyone has the Adventure Bars, pics would be great.  I'd like to see a better view of how far they extend from the fairing.

I'm real impressed with the Top Block tip over protection. It isn't cheap, but I think its the best solution currently out there.

I agree Fred! And by far the best looking. Although, they won't double as handicap bathroom bars like some of the others!  :))

In this photo, you can see the hidden front supports that connect to the engine and how the whole system is connected. It really is extremely robust.

You do have to make a 1 inch hole in the lower black panel to connect the front of the sliders to the engine braces. That is the only real drawback I have found to them. But I think a simple 1 inch black plug would easily cover the holes if I ever decided to remove them for any reason.

They look great! But, how much do they cost and how long did it take to install them?  Drilling the hole seems to be the only scary part. :-\

Did you go with the other tip over protection pieces that are made by Top Block?

Yeah, Fred, how much did they run to get here to the US?  That hole scares the bejeezus out of me to think about drilling, I'll be totally honest.

They look good from the pic.  I wish you could show us some more from some other angles.  Could you realistically put a foot up on them to give you another riding position for few minutes.  Something to give your knees a break?

You can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.

I have a whole bunch more photos of them from all angles in a gallery here if you want to see them. I even layed the bike down and shot photos of it resting on them.

They sell for about $560, plus shipping from France, which takes about 10 days and cost another $50 or so.

If you are interested, the best way to contact them is to  email Tatiana at:

I don't fear the holes, I fear the misplacement thereof.  :)  A misbroken egg is easy to fix.  A misdrilled hole - not so much.  LOL  Thanks for the info, Fred.  You rock.

Tatiana said she would do a 10% discount on orders of 10 or more, so if someone wants to put together a group buy, they will support that. You might also be able to save some on shipping if you got them all shipped to one location and then shipped them back out from there. You'd have to check with her and see how they wanted to handle shipping.

One thing I did when I drilled the hole to make sure it was in the right spot was I first mounted the engine brace, and then drilled a smaller pilot hole and made sure it was lined up correct before I drilled the bigger hole. The instructions give you exact measurements on where to drill it, and I followed them to the letter, and it positioned my holes perfectly.

Cool.  Here's my next question.  I'm looking at the picture below and I'm wondering, if you go down with momentum, how likely is it that the bike would go "over" the slider and end up on the mirror, top of the side fairing and tank?

In a crash, all bets are off. These are designed for no-speed/low-speed drops. No one in the world makes protection for bikes that are crashed at speed.

I added a set of the gsg sliders today.  Twisted Throttle was awesome to deal with.  The sliders fit well and look good.

I dont see how they can be as strong as the set from France, but the cost is half as much and no holes.   At this point a picture would be nice.  If I had the intelligence to post one, I would. Here is a link.  http://www.twistedthrottle.com/trade/productview/3931/602/

The fit against the frame is very snug.

409 ... can you show us a photo of the bike on the side with the sliders in place?  I know you said you aren't that savvy with tech stuff ... neither am I.  But, folks here will help you if you try to post the photos.  I'd like to see the bike on it's side with the sliders.  I think these look better than the one's above.  Just my opinion, tho.

Bagger, I have a strong friend coming over this weekend, so I'll see if he can be near as I tip it over.  I've never leaned this bike over that far, so I dont want to attempt it alone.  I do want to see it.....

ZG,

What are the sliders in your picture? They look different than Fred's. I like the visible support better on your pics, less like a tube and more like a casting.
