Crash Protection Suggestions

Hi Guys, I'm picking up my new to me cbr600fs 2002 on Monday and would like some suggestions for crash bungs, frame sliders, bar ends etc that offer the best protection. I'd like to not cut the fairings if atall possible, i think the r&g bungs dont require any fairing cutting but im not sure? Any advice?

Re: Crash Protection Suggestions

to "blades. When I bought my RR8 the last thing I wanted to do was cut holes in the brand new plastics. While researching no cut sliders I came across multiple stories about broken frames were the slider mounts and broken engine pieces from these bending inward. Then came across a couple of articles explaining that the off set mount creates a considerably greater amount of force on the bolt. After reading that I bit the bullet and drilled holes. It wasn't as bad as I had imagined it. I used a hole saw to drill a slightly smaller hole then used a dremell tool with a sanding bit to expand to the ideal size. At first I really hated the idea of cutting plastics but now I can do it with out hesitation. In fact I am going to cut a couple in about a week. Just my two cents.


Frame Mounted Sliders - In-Direct
To address some of the concerns owners may have about modification of the
fairing, some manufacturers have opted for a design that allows for the slider to
mount onto an offset bracket that then mounts onto the frame. This offset
introduces a whole new set of variables into the mix. Depending on the degree of
the offset, impact forces now include amplified torque stresses which will be applied
to the frame mounting points. Offset brackets will need to be of beefier
construction, but not so beefy as to stay intact during an impact while severely
damaging the frame mounting points. This is often the most costly type of slider
configuration as most brackets require ingenious CNC work and design. In some
situations employment of a bracket is a calculated risk, in others it is just not
feasible. No cut sliders are attractive to most bikers so do your homework and ask
the manfacturer questions before you buy them.

Re: Crash Protection Suggestions

Got R&G Aero Frame sliders and Sato Engine Sliders ... i agree that should always go for a good brand the difference in price does not compare to the difference in quality; and there is little sense in skimping on your/your bike's safety.

Re: Crash Protection Suggestions

The shoes I normally wear.. come off and on really easily haha. Not the best for a crash but hey they were comfy!

Even my gloves, which are for motocross... wouldnt hold up to pavement.
This is why I will get some good gloves next spring. I already have full leathers with knee sliders
