Question for those with OES Frame Sliders

Recommended Posts

xdr
I was washing/polishing my bike today, and noticed that the frame sliders could spin. I checked the bolt and it is still tight (loc-tited) in place. Didn't want to break the loc-tite free yet as I know they were properly torqued during install.
 
Can someone else who has these grab theirs and see if theirs spin as well? Both sides of mine did this.

I can't recall but there must be a spacer on there, but yes mine spin too. As long as the nut was torqued down ... no worries

Good to hear. I also can't remember if there was a spacer/washer.

Long bolt and the non-threaded part must be slightly longer than the slider. My guess is the slider spins freely so the bolt should never be able to un-thread without a wrench.

Ok, I used blue loc-tite on both sides of the frame sliders, and on the left side of the axle sliders. On the right side I used red loc-tite. This way the axle sliders can be removed still.

I've had my OES sliders on for about 9 months and yes they spin.

Yep, the bolt tightens on a metal bushing - not the plastic bit. Mine will turn as well and the bolt is good and tight.

Normal, the plastic slider is pressed onto an aluminum bushing. Only the bushing is clamped by the engine mounting bolt.
