Sato Racing frame sliders
on: September 10, 2021, 01:02:59 AM
Hi all,
Thought Iíd give a heads up to everyone. Sato Racing now has frame sliders available for the M2. These have shown ďComing SoonĒ for quite some time, and then briefly appeared only to go out of stock again.  I just bought a set of these and can attest that they are really solid.  Wonít be able to get them installed for a couple weeks, so Iíll update on fit when I get a chance.

Price is $250, and apparently there IS a difference between these and the sliders for the Ď13-17 675 (according to a Sato rep I spoke with).

They're horrible, and I think they do more damage in a fall than if there was nothing.

The Sato frame sliders look like the standard style from the likes of R&G and others so although not as nice looking as the original and no longer available Triumph versions for anyone looking to protect the Carbon fairing during a a bit of track day action they would be a good investment.

Looking at the Sato site their Moto2 rear sets seem to address the use with our ABS system where other makes don't.
All looks well made.  :028:

They seem to have world wide distributors as well, although the UK agent seems to be a Harley specialist and don't list the Sato parts on their web site that I can see  :027:

I might need to dust off the Credit Card  :002:

So Iíve had the Sato rear sets on my 765Moto2 for about 2 months now, just turned 1000 miles.

The Satos require you to readjust the shift linkage out of the OEM position which runs thru the frame,  and you have to install them so that the linkage is vertical to the gear arm clamp that has a spacer with a bolt that screws the linkage into the clamp.  (Different from OEM).

Anyway - this past Sunday on my ride the bolt that connected the linkage thru the spacer into the gear clamp broke off between the spacer and the clamp.  Leaving the clamp with about 1/4 inch of the bolt screwed into the clamp.   Thankfully I was at a stop light when it happened and I didnít lose a bunch of pieces.   Long story short the $54 clamp is back ordered.   So I ordered the OEM and also a replacement from the 765 Street Triple.  But that one was $84.... 

Now I need to find a titanium bolt that will withstand the force of shifting without breaking every 500-600 miles....
