Hey guys,
I recently installed T-Rex Frame Sliders to my 2014 ZX6R and I am concerned about the space between the slider and the frame. The rubber is a cushion in case you do go down but it doesn't even touch the frame.

So the question basically is it supposed to be like that?

I wrote to the T-Rex customer support to ask that questions but it's obvious that the guys is a customer support guy and not a specialist. He replayed "if you feel if it is the puck so that I can just send you a replacement side" My only though to that was "How the [email protected] I know whether it is a puck or what!? I am not a T-Rex Engineer I have no clue how it's supposed to be." :coocoo :crazy

BTW only one slider has a puck but both sliders has a gap between frame. So obviously it is either by the construction or by the design. And you cannot install it visa versa it's out of the question.

Any thoughts or comments on that?

I had a similar problem, and sent this to them:

I just bought sliders for my 2013 Kawasaki ZX-6R. The right side slider is slightly loose with the bolt tightened. It's as if the bolt is a little too long.Everything else snugged up nicely.

I believe they sent me a shorter bolt, and everything snugged up fine.

I don't think it's similar. I don't have loose parts. Both sliders seat tight.
Do you have that gap between the slider and the frame? I can stick my finger into the wider part of the gap.

Do the sliders wiggle at all once installed?
No! Everything is really tight. I tightened the bolts by the spec 32 ft-pound.

hey small world, the white 2013 zx6r that T-rex uses on their website is my bike. I brought them the first white 2013 to get delivered in Dallas and they made the mold with my bike :)

sorry about the thread jack ;)

I ordered the frame sliders for a 07 and they shipped with ALL wrong bolts. I contacted them and they were nice and shipped out the right one no charge, but do keep that in mind if its not fitting right. My instructions had the bolt lengths on it so you could measure to see if they are correct.

Wow dude that's really cool! :bigthumb:

I have just received the replay from T-Rex:
I just spoke to my tech guy. he states yes that gap is meant to be there. It gives it some room to give if you ever go down on the bracket.

So we can close the topic! :done

It might be normal.

I have them on mine and the gap is normal. If they are torqued to spec, I wouldn't worry about it. I actually have used the sliders and the gap will go away with the weight of the bike on it once it's doing what it's intended to do. They really protected the bike btw.
