How difficult is it to get frame sliders installed on the RC? I assume you have to cut plastic. Is that the extent of it or do you have to do anything else?

I replaced all the bodywork on mine last year and pondered frame sliders or not.
I just couldn't bring myself to drill holes in those expensive new lower cowls, so I pulled my sliders off.
If I crashed it, the sliders wouldn't make much difference in the outcome anyways.
Maybe on the track, but not on the streets I ride.

Great write up and pics. The Play Dough idea is ingenious! Too bad the sliders don't stick out from the plastics a bit further though.

The Sato sliders stick out about 1 to 1.5" on either side (at least they did on mine).
These are the ones that use the lower front engine mount.
