Re: What frame slider/fender eliminator for 09 Blade?

There's a bunch of no cut kits out there for frame sliders, but I have'nt heard of a single one performing well in a crash. Maybe I just don't look for them since i would never put a no cut on my baby. They cost more, and offer less protection than a cut in slider since they add lateral stress to the bolts that the sliders bracket attaches to. I only say this because more often than not, people who buy no cuts are under the impression that the crash protector is there to keep the shiny stuff shiny, which is just wrong. Crash protectors are intended to protect the frame and engine as much as possible and thats it, sure they can minimize damage to your fairing but in most cases your plastic will still get scratched even with no cuts.

If you dont have access to a drill I could understand not wanting cut in sliders, but thats about it.

I reccommend the R&G Aero crash protectors since they come with a spike to help center your bit, took me a whopping 30 minutes to do my last set, although I have done about 4 other R&G installs prior to that on my buddies' bikes so i had a little experience. I would say 1 hour tops, and thats only because learning how to take the plastic off the bike is harder than drilling the holes for the bobbins.

I understand drilling into your baby is scary, trust me I had reservations about it, but in the end the Aero bobbins look quite nice on the Fireblade, I've even had people comment that they look like they belong on the bike.

As for fender eliminators, I picked up a Bikelitez SS kit for my blade. Heres a link.

BikeLitez.Com - Tag Holders Turn Signals Halo Kits Angel Eyes Integrated Tail Lights!

It aint cheap compared to a few others out there but you get what you pay for in this case. I was actually surprised by the quality of the part, its fiber reinforced plastic, which basically means its a mix of fiber glass and plastic. Its very sturdy. The turn signal Led's are pretty standard fare electronic parts bin stuff, but they are bright and easily visible during the day. Only thing I dont like about it is the supplied tag bracket which compared to the actual undertail is pretty crappy, I cut mine down so its just enough to mount the plate to and thats it. Also people off to the side of you cant see the turn signals well during the day, but at night they are fine.

Ultimately its all about what you want your bike to look like, some fender eliminator kits require cutting, while others require you to keep your old turn signals (which imo are ugly). I like the look of the SS as it cleans up the entire rear end making the bike look even more like a MotoGP bike
