1000rr frame slider question

ok, ive decided to wait on a pipe and get some protection for my bike first. i only ride on the street and my main concern is if the bike was to fall over or something was to happen going slow. i dont think i have the heart to cut my plastics but i dont want to put something that will damage the bike more if it fell. i was looking at the lightech no cut frame sliders but they are expensive and if they wont do the job i would rather suck it up and cut my plastic. so whats the verdict here? also, if i get frame sliders do i need to get swing arm sliders and bar end sliders also????

Re: 1000rr frame slider question

Cut the plastic, those are the strongest sliders with the least chance of snapping off.
swing arm sliders wouldn't be a bad idea but I don't have them. Bar end sliders... I would just buy new bar ends if needed after a fall

Re: 1000rr frame slider question

I know what you mean, just did it to mine, do a search on here and it will give some more insight on how to line up the plastic for the hole saw. make sure you tape it up very well (blue painters tape will work wonders) so that you don't chip the paint and you'll be good to go.

Re: 1000rr frame slider question

Ive had several friends have great luck with shogun no cut sliders even though everybody here seems to hate them. One was a full standup wheelie @ 90mph.. (closed course ) dropped it hard, bike slid for a long time almost totally ate one slider flipped to the other side and stopped on that one. Thats what I run and Im pretty happy with the look and build quality.

Re: 1000rr frame slider question

If you're worried about cutting your plastics, go with either Motovation or Lightech no-cut sliders. Cut sliders will give you the best protection but the Motovation/Lightech sliders have machined brackets and supports that snug up against the frame and prevent them from twisting in the case of a crash.

The reason everyone hates the Shogun sliders is because the bracket often bends and crushes the water elbow directly behind it because there is no support behind the bracket like with the Motovation or Lightech. And just a heads up, you have to drop the motor to replace that elbow - bad news.

And you should got the bar ends and swing arm sliders too - cheap protection

That's what I put on mine - the bar ends help reduce vibration in the clip-ons too.

Re: 1000rr frame slider question

You're only gonna f up the water elbow if you have an 04-05 the 06 its clear.

Bar end sliders are good to have because the will slide, the stock aluminum ones tend to grab and can cause the bike to flip.

Re: 1000rr frame slider question

I used LSL sliders to replace the junk shogun ones the previous owner has installed. The machining and design of the LSL's are far superior to most of the non-cut styles out there.

twisted and bent shogun slider after a parking lot low side at 15mph. Imagine if he dumped it on the road: side | top
new Spiegler LSL 2 piece puck style sliders: mounting bracket | installed
