The SpeedyMoto frame slider kit includes an extremely durable 17-4 stainless steel engine stud. Precision-ground, thread-formed, quenched and tempered to an aircraft grade tensile strength of 185,000 psi, our stud far surpasses OEM specs (as well as other manufactures) in both strength and wear-ability.
We employ stainless steel for the integral engine nuts and slider support, not unlike the high-strength engine bolts used by Ducati race teams. Corrosion resistant and strain-hardened stainless steel is ideal for the crucial applications of holding your motor in, supporting the entire chassis, and providing a reliable platform for the actual slider.
SpeedyMoto uses Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) plastic for the slider puck. Unlike other plastics, the unbelievably low friction coefficient of this plastic makes it practically glide on the pavement. By using this material the risk of ‘grabbing’ is reduced, avoiding turning a smooth low side into the dreaded catastrophic high side.
This kit is design to retain the factory heat shield.
