Hey guys, I ordered frame sliders and they came with a spacer, 6 washers, and an o-ring on each end on the inside of the bar. Is there some sort of "stop" on the inside of the frame hole that will keep these in place? Do they press against the engine or something? They seem like they will slide around in the frame and don't serve a purpose.

Have your sliders come with all this?

With so many views one of you has to have installed sliders...

Do I just take off everything on one half and then side it in replacing the stock mount then put everything back in place? What purpose do all the washers serve?

Did the sliders you bought have washers and the oring?

there s/b a washer between every piece. didn't this come with instructions?

it actually looks like 5 flat washers and 1 lock washer on a side.

also look slike you have double nuts, but IDK

perhaps it goes washer, nut, washer, spacer, washer, slider, washer, lock washer, nut.

It is 5 washers and a lock washer. One end has 2 nuts and the other end has 1 nylon lock nut. It came exactly like that in a tube with no instructions.

does "s/b" mean should be? Did yours come with instructions stating this? It makes sense.


Also, would you be able to tell me if there is something on the inside of the hole (near the center of the frame I guess) that seperates things? Maybe a lip?

Yes, s/b means should be.

If I had to guess (and this is a guess), I would start 1 side washer, nut, the other side, washer. My spacers were threaded so I didn't need the additional nut.

The nut side is used to fix the length of the threaded rod. Ultimately, you want the same amount of rod coming ount on each side (measured by a vernier caliper, or very thin ruler), then alternate parts as previously discussed.

Yes, I had a washer between each piece too.

I can't imagine you can't call who you got slider from for printed instructions, though.

Good luck.

Who makes these no-doc sliders anyway?

I want to get some too, and think it's thoughtless for the mfg. to not provide instructions.

For everyone's information, only 2 washers fit. I still have no idea why so many were on there, I couldn't get ahold of the company.
