Slider-type protection for a track day
I have a 2004 R6 that I'm getting ready for my first track day. I have a couple of questions about sliders:
1. Is there an ideal length for my frame sliders to be?
2. There is an internal M8 x 1.25 screw thread on the underside of each of my driver footpegs, which I believe are stock. Is this for the mounting of some kind of slider or protection device? They look like if the bike were laid down in a low side, for example, and a foot peg folded up, this screw thread would be pointing down toward the track or ground. So if something like a slider were installed, it would prevent damage.
