How many of you guys are using the Vortek sliders?

I just put them on this past weekend, and dont like the fack that the left one doesn't extend out as far as the right one.
I measured it and it has a 19mm diference, im thinking of having an extension made!
If i have the piece made would anybody else be interesed in one!

When I had mine on they were different. Its not too bad unless you tell someone. After my drop i took them backoff because i did not want to cut a new fairing like i did my original new fairing.

Someone else put a spacer in theirs when they put them on to make them even. I think they put it between the base and the puck. So wouldnt that make it look different any way?? If you put in under the base you need a longer bolt and how does that affect their performance (hopefully you never know).

we have the no cut ones if you still want to use frame sliders.
