Re: Frame Sliders - Ay or Nay?

Saw a guy tip his bike over yeserday at a track day. No speed, he just spazzed. No damage to fairing or anything but maybe the tip of the slider and the footpeg. Sliders seem to have paid for themselves right there.

Let the rider who has never said "Doh!" cast the first stone.

Re: Frame Sliders - Ay or Nay?

Do any of you guys have those really long (maybe 6 inch) delrin frame sliders? I have intuitive sliders and my bike has seen 2 low speed drops on the left side. Both times it broke the case cover. I was wondering if the added leverage on these extended sliders would have the potential to break stuff? Could they possibly only break the bolt and nothing else?

Re: Frame Sliders - Ay or Nay?

Get your self some sliders....they are worth every penny.I got run off the road the other week and the sliders took most of the brunt. My frame is straight...got a few grazes on my stator cover and pegs, blinkers mirrors and fairing....but without them the whole left side would have been trash.

Re: Frame Sliders - Ay or Nay?

They were the first thing I put on my bike when I got it in 2000. Took me 4 years to actually use them, bike fell off the swingarm stand and landed on it's side. Only scratches on the fairing are minor.

The bike was fully on it's right side. Only places that touched down other than the slider was the very edge of the slipon flange and the lower fairing.

Best investment I've made on the bike, really paid off.

The also make great auxilliary handlebars so you can tuck right in for top speed runs.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: Frame Sliders - Ay or Nay?

The Intuitive and Protek sliders seem to be pretty well made.

Re: Frame Sliders - Ay or Nay?

I have the Intuitive sliders and can vouch for their effectiveness. I've seen them save other bikes as well as my own. Worth every penny...

Please tell me you don't grab your frame sliders instead of your handlebars going at speed

I always wondered how good they would work after I put mine on because they are so short but from everyone here that has "used" them I'm pretty confident in them to do the job if it happens.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Frame Sliders - Ay or Nay?

Get the sliders off www.kyleusa.com 54 dollars best investment ever. I tell you what I want down from a tank slapper at an estimated 80mph and I only rashed 1, that's right 1 fairing. The upper, and tail, and tank are in mint condition. So what would you rather have, 1 fairing damaged or a totaled bike?
