would nesba allow these toe sliders?

the normal plastic sliders seem to wear too fast so I am looking for something that will last a little longer.

http://www.motostrano-store.com/toesliders.html

these are magnesium, but I cannot tell if they would spark or not.

does anybody know for sure
or have any experience with these kind of sliders??

sounds like someone needs to get there ass off the seat, or get on the balls of your feet more on the pegs


i have plastic ones, and they rarely touch, not sure if those would spark, if they do

I believe that Dustin Boyd, Midwest CR has those tow sliders. Assuming that they are the same ones, they do not spark.

probably a case of:
- stock footpeg setup
- not getting butt off the seat enough
- resting arch on footpeg instead of ball

I got em and they do not spark. Made of Magnesium Alloy. The alloy part is the key to the No Sparky..... They do last longer but are about $25 a set. The plastic ones can be bought for around $7 a set. So you decide.

AS for improper foot position, I disagree. Not getting off the bike far enough, I agree.... I have dragged my exhaust on the ground leaning that beast over so alot depends on the lean angles you are riding...... Some tracks require more lean angle than others to carry higher speeds. I can reduce the amount of toe drag I have for sure but I will also drag my can or my peg if I want too.

Well, there ya have it. Red900 is the man in the know, so the definitive answer is:

Yes, you can use those sliders at NESBA events.

I have no idea why but I use to drag my toes going into turn 1, 5 and 7 at Blackhawk all the time and I was only running 23's on a GSXR600. Now I am running 3 seconds faster on a slower bike, but have never dragged a toe. It seems to be a combination of body position, picking better lines, and ride height/other suspension bits on the bike.

In fact, I lost a toe slider in my get off at Autobahn North and just dont even care to replace it. Why waste the money?
