With an hint of Gerhard i bought a Chainslider for an DUCATI MONSTER 696 (2009) for 20,-€.
Image

To fit the slider you have to grind the "nipples" down that holds the slider.
With an compressed air grinder it works fantastic. You have also to spare out the weld bead. Than it fits close to perfect.
Image

Image

Next you mark the point to mount the slider at the upper side with an crayon.
Image

Then you have to drill the holes and cut the thread (i did an DIN M6x1.0). One at the upper side and one below (no photo taken).
Image

To fix the slider perfectly you have to measure out a distance piece. In my case i use two washers (DIN M8) and pressed them a little. They fit exactly ! :thumbup:
Image

I used old lens head screws from the fairing, clean them up and use "Loctite" to hold them "tight" ! :evil:
Image

I hope if she is back on the road next year that i done my work right... :beer:

(If there`s an "incorrect" used words - please let me know !)

Best wishes for all of you, drive save !
Helge

Helge,

thanks for trying it out and the pictures! Wouldn`t it be better to use the lens head screw without the washers below just to increase the distance from the screw head to the chain ? You could use a very short metal tube to ensure the tightened screw doesn`t break out the plastic.
Are the centers of the chain sliders at the same position and how did you fixate the bottom part or did you shorten it like the original slider ?

G.

The part number btw is #44710731A and fits also other model years of the Monster 696.

The hint with the screwhead... hm, you might be right. As i was looking for the right type of screw this one doesn`t get into the "big hole". But maybe i doesn`t tried it enough. If i think about it - it have to fit. I try it tomorrow... :thumbup:
The hole below is at the end of the slider. I sink the screwhead down a bit. I placed it right in the middle. The chain wouldn`t hit the screwhead over there.
I`ll take photos...

Aunt EDIT : OF COURSE - the center of the sliders are the same ! That`s most important i know ! :thumbup:

Would it be an option to fit the plastic slider to the frame uring the hole in line with the hole on the aluminuim frame, fix it and heat up the plastic to remodel the shape to fit the aluminium?
It seams there is some length left in the chainslider and I hate to drill holes in the original parts, rather modify this slider.
However, nice done, good suggestion for a modification and thanks for sharing, think I buy a slider too as it would come handy some time in the future. . . .

No Olaf - no way ! This is NO - hm, in germany we say "THERMOPLAST" . You can`t form it by temperature. It`s a little like Polytetrafluorethylen (PTFE - Teflon).
You drill the holes in the upper side and below. No problem for stability.
My opinion.

Olaf, if the front part is stiff enough you could shorten it like the original part. Then you`d only need the hole in the mounting bracket.

I don`t think that the black one is stiff as the white one, but : who cares ?! The white one ends directly in front of the axle. So the constructors opinion was :"That is enough !"
The marks on MY swingarm brings me to that way of thinking :"Why shorten a long chainslider?" - It`s ok that way ! :thumbup:

Also no time for going down today (wife`s birthday)... Be patient please !

the swingarm chain slider of the early Aprilia RSV Mille might also be another option but it would require some modification as it becomes thicker in the middle.
Also it`s quite expensive.
However there might be others from other bikes that may be similar to ours.
