This purchase is for a set of engine guards for the above bike model. The sliders feature a new design of a complete solid puck without a hollowed-out center. This increases the strength and contact surface to about 30%. The pucks can be inexpensively replace without purchasing a new set of steel guards. The steel tubing is bolted to the engine mount of the bike and the slider puck is bolted onto it. The steel tubing has seven attachment points and braced together to prevent them from rotating in the event of a low side. The engine guards are braced together by crossbars in order to further increase its strength and ability to absorb damage. The material of the puck is made of UHMW-PE (ultra high molecular weight polyethylene), a tough plastic with good strength, wear resistance and dimensional stability. It is more dimensionally stable than Nylon and used in many industrial ball bearing and friction reducing applications. Compared to Delrin, it is softer but tougher. Delrin is harder but more brittle. It is an ideal material for engine guards / frame sliders since it can absorb more impact force onto itself and therefore reduce the impact on the bike. The slider pucks can be inexpensively replaced in case of a low-side. We use highest grade commercially available 12.9(177,000 psi in tensile strength) wherever possible. Rest assured that you are getting the best material commercially available.
