Thread: Shogun frame sliders install

  1. #1

    Default Shogun frame sliders install

    I am installing my frame sliders tonight and I'm just curious on one thing. I bought some blue thread lock and need to know, 1 is it the right kind or should I have got red and 2 does it go on the engine bolts or only the bolts for the puck or both? Thanks a ton in advance!

    I don't think you have to, but if you do I think blue is what you need. I think the red is stronger. I don't have loctite on mine and they haven't come loose. Just checked them while I had my bike apart and they're tight.

    You probably know this, but DO NOT TAKE OUT BOTH ENGINE BOLTS AT THE SAME TIME! Sorry for the caps, but if you take out both sides there goes your engine support. Not everyone has common sense. Other than that the shoguns are super easy. Any questions, feel free to ask. Shoguns were my first mod.

    The ones I have only have one hole for the spacer. I'm guessing they only use one engine bolt

    I would suggest NOT using lock tight. Mainly because if you ever wanted to take those bolts out it would be difficult to break the seal without using a torch. You may need to take them out eventually if you drop the bike and they need repair or engine repairs, ect.

    Yup, but some people have pulled both bolts (both sides of the bike). Thinking that they'd pull both instead of pulling one, putting slider on, pulling other one, putting slider on.
