    Has anyone bought these from Ebay?

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224106521...26rkt%3D15%26s

    They do state that for the GT/ST, some modification is required. On the GT this is by drilling a hole in the black plastic upper fairing panel. HAs anyone done this and could give pointers on how to ensure the hole will line up with the bolt hole in the frame?

    thanks

    Andy.

    Personally, i would not go for those. The single bolt fitment will transmit all impact into the frame. So the bodywork might be ok, but the frame might be damaged.

    Look for a set up that uses multi mount points & has an adapter/spreader plate between the slider & the frame mount.

    I was debating about putting some TRex sliders on mine. Kinda pricey but no cutting into the fairing. You might check them out. They are local to me and I have put them on a couple other bikes I owned.

    I totally agree regarding T-Rex sliders. I have them on my F800GT and they seem to be the real deal with respect to sturdiness and fitment - plus they look really cool - like some sort of aero thing a la MotoGP (well I might be pushing my enthusiasm bit there!!!). Will post a picture when I get a chance.

    I contacted them, but the postage costs to the UK were prohibitively expensive.

    You may find this post from last year to be of interest -- https://f800riders.org/forum/showthr...ghlight=slider R&G, the manufacturer of the sliders described is U.K. based.
