Well they look real nice "black of course". One thing I would be carefull of is the right side factory bolt is very weak on the bike and was hard to get off the bike. I'm glad it came with new bolts because my 6mm ratchet ate the facotry bolt for lunch I ended up using vice grips on it. The end result is very nice though. The no cut extender plate is about 1/2 thick steel. Much better looking then the shogun. WWW.OESaccessories.com if anyone is intrested.

My kit looks like this but rounded ends instead of angle cut.

I got the OES because the metal extension piece that allows the right side to be no-cut is about twice as thick as the shoguns. They look pretty similiar other than that.

I got the same kit, I havent installed the right side yet..Once I saw it slightly strip the bolt I stopped. I am going to get a better allen socket and use a impact to get it out....I still want a useable bolt just incase I want to take the sliders off for some reason..

But you said you got them off with vice grips, was that pretty easy, I just ask incase I strip mine =)

I used a small pipe wrench on the right side to get it off once I stripped it (inevitable)..... Good luck with that

Yea I just installed mine and stripped the right side bolt. Luckily I had a craftsman bolt extractor kit on hand, though I still had to drill into the bolt a little to get a better bite... All-in-all the bast price and quality for sure

...OES ftw...!
