Hi all,
new sv650s rider and new to svrider forums. I want to get a set of frame sliders for my 2005 sv650s and I was wondering which sliders you would recommend and which are the easiest to install? My bike only has the factory installed half fairing.
thanks

+1 for motosliders. Nate is a member of this board, and many of us have his sliders. They were so easy to install that I was able to do it - and I am useless.

Motoslider!

Only one bolt vs. Two when talking about others....

For the price, you won't find better.

A tip that I have yet to see one here for getting the "viking bolt" out is using your socket wrench: slip over the end a peice of pipe, two to three feet, and use the added leverage to get it to budge. By hand, I never would have been able to. With the pipe, there was nothing to it.

With that said, their really is nothing to installing any frame sliders on the SV. If you have lowers, then you will have to make a small hole, but again not hard.

I found it easy by hand w/ a normal torque wrench.  Just don't forget the 2nd socket to hold the other bolt...D'OH!

I needed a deep 19mm socket on the left side.

Also, make sure you use a good 6-point socket on the origina nuts. The locktite can be a bear to break, and you could easily strip the nut.

LOL me too.

I love nate's sliders. The only problem I had was getting the factory's engine bolt loose. Eat your wheaties before you undertake this, because it took me a TON of pushing and pulling to get those things loose! It's worth it though!

Very true. Motosliders are great but breaking that factory bolt is a bear. I bought the correct deep sockets (17mm and 19mm are needed) and still had to rent an electric impact wrench. If you have the right tools (impact wrench or long pipe for the end of socket wrench) it's a breeze. Thanks, Mike.

I just used my air tools and it came out with a few squirts of the trigger.
Used a large torque wrench to put it back on to spec.

They are very easy to install....just be aware of the fact that Suzuki has vikings put the factory bolt in and it can be very fun to get it out. 
that's funny because i didn't think the bolt was that tight, or maybe i'm a viking ;D, motosliders are the recommended slider of svrider 8)
