tough time pounding them on. should have fit better. i,m sure they will be hard to get off when worn. origanals came off easy. for all the trouble, i hope they wear well. also had to drill pilot hole bigger and ream out the hole so the bolt would sit flush. if you dont mind customizing, then buy em. they are a "will fit" not an exact OEM
I ordered the Black Hi performance slides for my 95 zr and could not be happier. Simply had to cut them to the desired length and slide them on! With the graphite additive they produce less friction, which in turn means better durability!!!
Put them on a 1995 touring e. Went right on, no cutting required and the hole for the bolt lined up correctly with the one in the rail. Using a spray bottle with soapy water to sray on slides inside and out makes it much easier
The garland slides are great. I bought a set for a 96 Vmax 600. Simply cut to length and install. Nice product, albeit there are cheaper slides on Shade Tree, I didn't notice until after I ordered from DK.
I bought them for an Excel III. They worked great! Later I went to a Yamaha dealer, because I needed slides for my other sled in the next hour. I came to find that the dealers slides were these garland, with the addition of a Yamaha sticker and a few dollars.
