The Install:
 
 
Removed this bolt with a 17mm Socket.

Factory bolt on the left, and supplied Woodcraft bolt on the right.  Had to put a little bit of anti-sieze on the supplied bolt.

Installed the Slider base.  Made sure to install with the threaded hole up.

With the threaded hole on the upside, the Woodcraft engraving is leveled and parallel to the ground.

Now for just random shots of how far it sticks out and what not:

Hope this helps someone in choosing their sliders.

I like the idea of the replacement pucks. If I did not already have sliders these would probably be the ones I would get. Thanks for the photos.

Great post man. I've been eyeing the short puck option for a while now, would love to get an imperial measurement of how far they stand off from the bike to help me decide. (Looks about 3" from the frame to the face of the puck...)

I actually have the Standard sized pucks. The short pucks would look even better, but the protection I don't know. I have been down before on the right side, and the "only" damage I got was to my right fork (had I installed fork sliders they would have been fine), right intake duct, Rad Guard cover, water pump cover, bent handle bars, and rear sets.  I think if I had the frame slider installed, the only damage would have been bent handle bars and damaged rear sets.  Btw I was hit while lane splitting, but I was only going around 20-25 MPH.

@sorkyah the new R1 versions look really cool too, but I don't think they'd fit our slider mounts, but are the most low profile, if aesthetics, or form goes before function. Some people are like that haha.

They look amazing and are definitely the nicest ones out there IMO. Fork and rear axle sliders are also on the radar...just don't want them to take away from the 'cool' factor. 
PS - no more lane splitting, the Cager's don't give a damn

Short ones only in black is correct. 
So that's a solid aluminum puck instead of Delrin, eh? They do look good in red I have to admit :)
 
I think Jeff is right about 'function over fashion', and they don't stick out all that far after all.

Thanks a lot; been on the fence with which frame sliders; your post sealed the deal! The shortys are 1/4" shorter, I think. Kind of odd they fail to offer a recomended torque value . . . :|
But still really like them; the quality is fantastic!
 
KAPUYA!

Just so you guys know, Woodcraft has updated their slider base design.

Notice how the engine side of the Slider is tapered in. The Slider on the left is the old design. Notice the paint being rubbed off and metal showing. The redesign makes sense. It was a pain in the ass to get the old one off.
 
BTW, full disclosure, the reason for replacement is because I didn't fully torque the first set of sliders and the left one fell off. So...save yourself some money and remember to torque your sliders LOL.

If anyone wants to buy the full set, sportbiketrackgear.com sells the sliders as a set.

Do the bolts get torqued to 40 ft lbs? Thought I saw that somewhere.
