Frame sliders!!

are frame sliders worth it if so what brands are good, do you suggest short or long or no cuts vs cuts. I’m not a track rider or a ignorant person who’s going out to try and carve every turn at 120+ on the streets or try and make Mach runs. Just got a nice bike and want to get it prestine, would rather do no cuts due to not feeling comfortable in my skill of precise cutting but will accommodate if needed

They are definitely worth it! Even if you aren't out dragging knees you never know when you will forget your side stand isn't down and lay the bike over:') Lots of reputable brands like r&g and graves but I think it comes down to how much you are willing to spend. I'm in the same boat debating on cut or no cut but the cut are going to offer better protection.

Re: Frame sliders!!

If you pull the bike apart, you'll notice that much of the frame is hallowed out to save weight. I'd rather buy fairings than crack a frame.

Re: Frame sliders!!

From what I understand frame sliders that require fairing cutting are the most structurally sound so to speak as the no cuts often require a few extra pieces to clear the fairings. For frame sliders that require fairing cutting, I'd suggest checking out the OEM R6 frame sliders. As for no cuts I was considering the Graves set. Be advised tho that set is pretty pricey. At the end of the day, some protection is always better than no protection.

Re: Frame sliders!!

I've laid my bike down on these and they definitely made the difference between me having to buy new fairings and a tank. You can't go wrong for the price and they do stick out just a bit further then some of the other brands which is nice too. The no-cut frame sliders do have more potential of bending when you go down because the one side has an adapter that allows you to go around the fairing at a lower point. I just can't get myself to cut into my fairings so no-cut was the way for me and i've been happy so far. haha
