Pete Lupori and family. PM Champ91. He makes the most kick ass sliders around. I have them on my 10R and 9R.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Motovation

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I picked up a set of Vortex ones in the fall (as Pete was tied up). The design is cool with replacable pucks etc. but the threading between puck and base is nothing short of pathetic (as 4&6 warned me). It takes a steady hand to line them up, and if you're off by a hair (which a dozen beers can do to a guy) you can kiss the investment goodbye as they'll strip in a half turn and you're hosed permanently.



When in doubt, go simple, and avoid the no-cut models that people are selling. The tabs that hold them in are notoriously weak and cause more damage than they're worth.

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

One bolt each. There are tons of good simple ones on eBay. I like the "Extended" frame sliders personally. I got Woodcraft sliders (not simple) on my new bike.

Enjoy and keep the shiny side up.

What about LSL sliders? Any good?

http://www.spieglerusa.com/cfm/FrameSliders.cfm

LSL's "Crash Pad" mounting kits are CNC machined from aircraft grade billet aluminum. These mount kits are developed for the specific needs of each model. For example the 03 GSXR1000 mount kit, (pictured right) was developed in conjunction with Suzuki Germany, under racing conditions, to reinforce the frame (at the motor mount) to prevent frame damage in the event of a crash.

"When in doubt, use full throttle. It may not improve your situation, but it will end the suspense."

Intuitive is nice but their customer service can be a bit lacking.
