Sliders

Searched a bit for a thread on frame sliders, but came up pretty empty. I ordered a set off E-bay yesterday (very inexpensive) so don't know what the quality will be. So the skinny is: what if any do most of the members use on the bikes that do have frame sliders or pucks (whatever) on their rides? I even went so far as to check for Sato's but like the pipes, they're MIA now.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

I'm not sure of the brand since it's been such a long time, but I bought my sliders from Dan Kyle. Then I used the guide in the rc51.org site to cut the fairings (super easy).

Good luck!

I have LSL frame sliders. I like them. Never had to use them, thankfully, but they look good. https://www.rc51forums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2170

The ones I grabbed were called Lightning, have no idea if they're worht a damn or not, but I figured for the price I could look at them and if I'm leary at all I'll use them for a door stop or something. I don't plan on needingthe rascals, but there are always the little mishaps in parking lots that can cost big $ in tuperware so. I could always give them to my b-in-law for his VTR too. Still interested in what others have found; RC's are so reare in these parts half of the guys I talk to haven't a clue what they are even. Getting to know mine though

I don't have them on my RC but I have the Yoyodyneti.com sliders on my GSXR and the best thing about those sliders is the ability to unscrew the puck and replace it with a tie-down mount.

i have pro teks. shouldn't worry to much about the sliders themselves, as long as they are a bit beefy and can withstand a fall you'll be ok. The more important thing is how they mount. A lot of sliders out there have the "no fairing cut" type, which basically consists of a bracket off the original mounting point eliminating the need for cutting your fairings. They break very easily and actually have more potential to do more damage to the bike, where as the other type (most of the RC ones i've seen are this way) bolt through engine mount points directly through the frame and are the strongest points on the bike.
As far as brands go anything from Motovationusa.com, Sato, protek, LSL, yoyodyne are great. I looked up the ones you bought and they look good, that single long bolt is what you want.....not tiny dual bolts. Looks like a nice kit, looks like it even comes with rubber lining for your fairing after you cut it.
