frame sliders

after talking to a few guys about my existing frame sliders it looks like it's worth my while to get new ones. (the old ones stick out too far and apparently if i were to go down they might actually do more harm then good - catching on the ground and flipping the bike.) i have an 06 gsxr 600. here's a set i'm looking at but i'm open to other options. thanks for you help in advance.

the first one makes me wonder with that question mark. its like they are asking if they are the highest quality instead of knowing

but then they reassure you with top selling so its all good im sure

Here is what I would recommend for any bike. These guys make some of the best ones I've seen...at least on the SV they work well. My SV has been knocked over, and I've checked out several that had been in slides and survived very well due to the quality of the sliders:

Bah! Sorry about that, I didn't notice.

I'd E-mail them and ask why. I bet they have some insight on frame sliders that you maybe didn't realize or otherwise woudln't know.

I have those, and they seem to be well thought out in theory- in reality I havent crash tested them yet.....thankfully.

I would recommend woodcraft or a set of OES. I went the OES route and really like them. You just need a sturdy slider made out of Derlin.

"frame sliders" are made to protect the frame in event of get-off, maybe these are strategically placed to keep the frame protected- who knows. Lots of people (not you, I know) think theyre supposed to protect the plastics, but theyre not. Hell, mine barely stick out, and if I go down, I know the plastics will get fooked up bad.

yeah, only reason i thought thats what it looked like is those pucks look like theyre pretty low slung on the side of the bike, vs the tradidional location on the upper engine mount, but anyways im sure somebody made a pretty penny off that design. just dont go out and "test" his engineering

I just bought some sliders for the 'tard through them, awesome quality. They also carry replacement parts for everything so you won't have to buy another set if you go down, just the specific part you need. Fast shipping too!

materials?

I have motovation on the V-Strom and some no-name ones from eBay on the SV. They appear to be similar quality - both have a single thru bolt (isn't this better?) but have no idea what materials. I would think Kevlar or polycarbonate would be stronger than Delrin. If I still worked in a materials lab I'd gladly test them all. Anecdotal evidence and personal experience only go so far!

The best sliders I know of are made by KWS.
The second best are the Woodcrafts that I have on my bike.

All you need right there. Hell, with that kind of protection, if you lowside, you'll just keep on sliding and the bike will eventually right itself

The sliders don't really need to be super strong, but they do need to slide and absorb impact. Delrin is a just about right for this.

I've got a set from uncagedcycle.com; they make them for GSXRs too.

Mine have been crash tested and work well. They are as short as possible...more the lowside type slider than the parking lot or stunt type slider.

A superior rider uses superior judgment to avoid situations that require superior skill.
