Frame sliders - does this look like a problem to you?

So I have the Shogun frame sliders. I was looking at my bike from the back recently and noticed the sliders aren't in the same position - the left one is straight but the right one is at an angle.



She's gone down on both sides a few times since I had them installed, but I only just noticed this. I've heard bad things about frame sliders bending the frame and I'm worrying some permanent damage may have been caused. She runs just fine... Should I be concerned?

Can you just swap them from one side to the other? If the bend also switched sides, you know it's the slider that's bent and not something else.

The slider itself can be bent, or the bracket the slider attaches to could be bent. Neither is likely a permanent, end of the bike, kinda deal. Both can be fixed pretty easily.

Likely; they did their job and saved you money: the sliders absorbed the damage! Take the fairings off and examine what is bent. You may have to bend the bracket back or replace the bolt(s) or perhaps even repair or replace the bracket. It's unlikely you've damaged the frame or motor.

The flat metal part of the bracket is the weakest section to bending loads: the bent is located by the weld.

Please, see this:

Most likely it's the slider. They should be straight. If you take it and the fairings off you should be able to see if there is any stress fractures on the slider or frame...

You should drop the bike on the left side a couple times until both sliders are bent at the same angle.
