So, do you guys use them for dedicated track bikes? I've heard the pros and cons... considering the damage on my bike after my recent wreck, it looks like the present sliders on there didn't save much and may have made the tank damage worse than it had to be. I'm figuring when these plastics have had enough I may not use sliders next time, they were on when I bought it. Thoughts?
It really depends on the type you buy. I had some Shogun so cut sliders on my bike when I wrecked and the left side that had the bracket snapped off. When it came to buying new ones I went with the cut Woodcrafts. They are shorter in length and use metal inserts so they should crash better. In the end you have to realize they aren't there to protect the tank, plastics, or anything else but the frame.
I dislike frame sliders, cause they can catch and send the bike flipping. Case savers, tank sliders, and swingarm sliders are the best set up imo
