Definitely, I figure what's the difference between drilling and sliding? IMO, it doesn't make sense to drill holes in them to protect them. I'll wait until I need the sliders to damage the plastic... the only advantage to drilling is that the slider sticks out a farther and protects more of the bike; cases, pump housing, etc...Thanks, the underbody rather than drilling holes in fairing ?
These work great locked onto the nut...just finished putting on the puig windscreen dark smoke on my black 848evo looks great. for those doing this yourself , start with the front two bolts they are a pita getting your fingers in there to hold the rubber nut. Worth it looks great.
