Hi everyone, I have designed a spring assisted motorcycle slider. I have researched springs and have found that I am able to mount a 400 pound spring into the slider, which I feel is plenty. I am currently building a drop testing device and have built a prototype slider with a 200 pound spring. Soon I will upload pictures of the prototype and when I’m finished testing I will upload a video of the testing taking place. The prototyped slider diameter is 2 ¾ inches I think I can make the diameter closer to 2 inches. The design is “Patent Pending” but I would love to hear suggestions and comments about the design like the mounting base or the sliding puck holding device. It seems like depending on the bike it needs a spacer or something so the mounting base can be bolted to the frame. Is that correct? Thanks for your time and happy riding.

Welcome to the forum. I'm actually interested to see what you are talking about here. I am also curious as to what you see the benefits of a spring loaded slider are. To me it seems that it would add weight and the possibility of failure under the load of a crash. Please do post pics and if you don't mind, more details of your design. Is the purpose of the spring to reduce impact?
