I use that method all the time on my 929(NinerPilot taught me that trick and I think HondaGal(s) use it, too). I use soft ties around the engine bolts (where sliders attach) and than hook my tiedowns to them. It works great and keeps the load off the clipons like you get when using a Canyon Dancer.Chain : Those are pretty darned trick.
Now for a related question...
Has anyone with a 954 tied it down by hooking the two triangular engine mounts on either side of the bike (where the frame sliders go)? Or using 'soft hooks' to loop through the mount, then attaching the tie down to them?
Seems this would work.
Make sure if you order that you notice the one I posted the link for is for a F2 or F3 as the one for the 929/954 didn't have a picture. Just click on the link and then search for sliders and you should be able to find the ones for the 929/954.SuperDave : That was me RRWANTR, Thanks! I knew I had seen some product out there. Has anyone used them? Will they thread into the 929, and have the different thread lengths per side?
Edit: I see the length differences in the picture
Yea, I'm assuming you thread in the frame slider kit into frame, and then thread the nylon cap into the frame slider. When you want to transport, unscrew slider cap and screw in eye hook. That's the way I took it. Not repeatedly unthreading from the frame, but within the slider itself.ZX9RCAM : So how does the slider work.....when you transport, you screw
off the slider & screw on the loop...???
