is the mounting system specific to the Single R so that it requires no cutting?

1- I just realized this is R subforum.

2- I have not used them on R. But from R pics (2015+) looks like the frame slider could go on top of engine mount where the fairings end. Don't take any guesses, contact WC first, they respond fast and know their stuff.

The sliders are easy to mount, the toughest part of the job is getting the side fairings off. Take the opportunity to check your coolant level while the right side is off. If you have any questions pm me. Good product.

You don't need to take the fairing off to check coolant level as there is a window on the ride side of the bike to look through.

I don't think skapan meant this was the only way to check the coolant but merely made a point of saying while the fairing is already off to do the install its an opportunity to also very easily check the coolant level.

I should have been more clear about this - I like to check the rad as well as the bottle. You can't check the rad without taking off the side panel. The bottle, sure. There can be coolant in the bottle and the rad is low.

Maybe since there's a need to be more specific and this isn't something people would think about we should likely remind people that removing the cap with the system hot and under pressure is a bad idea.
