Re: Slipon Questions for the 1krr

Does anyone know if the oggy knob brand of frame sliders are any good . I am refering to the no cutting model.Im told a cross bar needs to be fitted through the engine area from one slider to the other.Could this be a problem? Any advice would be great.
ps, do they look any good once fitted?

Yes there is a cross bar. Evidently it can cause issues but I think that Matt232 just crash tested some - and I think they were oggies.... From what my shaky memory tells me i think his opinion was they helped reduce the damage. Look up some of his recent threads.
As for oggy knobs in general, the set that went on my 929 did their job in an off at Sandown - but the mount of course was completely different. Quality looks about the same though.
On the 1KRR they kinda look like the following. Oh the 3rd pic is of the crashed 929 about 30 mins after the off. If you look closely at the right knob (yes I was a right know to crash but I don't mean me) you can see where it has ground down. Yes the left mirror left a bruise, yes I wish bikes were a bit roomier....

Re: oggy knobs

They weigh a tonne too (for the 600 and 1000RR's) with all the brackets, but they are good if you don't wanna cut holes. Incidently, the last importer here wouldn't sell the "bracket" models for "other" bikes coz they said they did more damage than good. But they weren't supoprted by the brackets that these are so......

But they are no longer distributed by Raven Racing but rather Kenma

If you are in Melbourne you can check out where they are made and have a chat to Liam, he's your man. He's always looking for new models to design more brackets.

Since I got my no cut oggys the cross bar design has been strengthen but mine seemed to hold up well and I'd say that they aided in limiting the damage to my bike.
