Re: Frame Sliders - Ay or Nay?

No these were generic. I bought some again because I rashed the right side slider. KyleUSA accidentally sent me a set of sato frame sliders that cost 20 dollars more.

the intuitives are pretty short too, around 4 inches maybe. as long as they work for what they're intended for they're good enough. and I trust intuitive and sato (I'm guessing yours are Sato's if you got them from Dan Kyle) for making a good product that will work as its suppose to.

Did not ride my 04 1000RR until I got a set of the no cut framesliders.

when I got my Intuitives I thought they were really small but from the people here that have crash tested them I'm confident with how they will work should I need to use them.

I went lowside on Jul 2nd '04 (just to test them out yeah right). est 60-50 mph. No damage to frame, or any other hard parts. Metal didn't catch & flip bike (unlikely IMO). Cases didn't bust. Left case minor scratches on bottom. Right side plastic (lower) cracked and replaced by Ron Ayers. After bike hit dirt beam, flipped side over side, resting on left side - which is still using "re-conditioned" and repainted plastic. Still using frame sliders with same caps (which you can order through Lp for replacement/ color customization). Since then, I've seen the delrin stype sliders wear down on a few bikes to where it really took a toll on the plastics (but still saved cases and frame).

Either way - Recommended (even the chrome jobbies)...

Any comments? Looking at the .org in general, sliders are highly rated here...... . Any one know of the damaged frame, as I tend to specialise in worst luck and worst case scenario's! Thx.

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?

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.

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