In this instructable, I will go through the fabrication of frame sliders for a motorcycle. I have chosen, as an example, a Ducati Panigale.
In the event of a crash, frame sliders help to protect your bike against excessive damage. They space the body off of the pavement, thereby protecting portions of the bike from harm. We will fabricate these out of Delrin, a Polyoxymethylene plastic that takes abrasion very well. You may use any similar material. TOOLS:
- Bridgeport, Jet, or comparable metal lathe
- Fine grit sandpaper
- Duct tape
- Ducati Panigale
