Whats everyone opinions on these? We all know every crash is different, but do these usually save the fuel tank?

Re: Traxxion tank sliders

don't buy that crap. Get eti-fuelcel.com sliders. I have many pictures of my bike after a crash. And each time the sliders are intact. Traxxion sliders will rip off on impact.

Re: Traxxion tank sliders

Scriptor, I just checked out their website, but it doesn't say how exactly they mount to the tank?

They come predrilled. One of bolts hookup to the tank near the seat (has a hole there). The other part you need to drill through the gas tank cover, lift the tank and screw it togethere there. I can't tell you how much $200 sliders are worth on your $10k bike. Think about that.

Re: Traxxion tank sliders

so it looks like one of the holes, is the same hole holding that black plastic piece to the tank, which is towards the back of the tank, near the seat, correct?

and for the screw closest to the front tire, do i just mount it to that plastic cover, or do i need to do something with the tank?

thanks for helping clear this up man.
