I installed the Skyking front sliders in the beginning of the summer without problem and bought a torque wrench to tighten them correctly. About a month later whilest on my way to the Nelson RAT Raid my head gasket started to leak a bit--not a significant amount but enough to wet the front of the crankcase and get a burning oil smell. The first thought that went through my head was that I tightened the front engine mounts incorrectly.
My dealer replaced the gasket under warantee and didn't say boo about the sliders so maybe it was just a coincidence.
