Question Frame sliders?

I'm looking to put some sliders on the bike. A long time ago I had Vortex on my Ninja, but that seems like too much $ for pretty aluminum bits considering the R6 is a track only bike.
What do you guys (and maybe galls) use? Links would be awesome too!

I found this set, price seems to be more than reasonable too:

Re: Frame sliders?

I hate to the bitter use the search button person, but this information is overwhelmingly abundant

Re: Frame sliders?

To make it more clear, I'm not looking for "pretty" or "no cut". I need something that will work on the track.

I've ordered from kneedraggers before, long time ago...

Re: Frame sliders?

I'd stick with Vortex, myself. The "pretty aluminum bits" are what makes it so that you can get just the Delrin portion of the slider.

I have them on both my street and track bikes.

Re: Frame sliders?

Have you crash tested them?
I had a set on my old Ninja and I ended up having to replace the entire slider.

Re: Frame sliders?

LOL..., mine have had crash testing, you could say that.

I stand by Vortex..., get the base, only have to replace the delrin pucks, it's nice.

I wore one down at Barber and still have a bunch of "rash" room on it. Then I had a nasty get-off at Roebling Road recently, and the engine mount bolt actually bent and the slider base was fine - a testament to the durability.

Speaking of delrin..., if you need some knee pucks, I'll swear by oesaccessories.com now. If you do STT days in the SE, it's the twin's shop that do the tire mounting..., anyway, these pucks last!!

Re: Frame sliders?

Woodcraft makes a real good slider. It has a solid puck so it grinds down slower and the sliders a a little shorter than most so they are less likely to bend the bolt. I "crash tested" 3 sets of sliders on my 06 two times the mount bolt bent. Out of the ones I tested the R&G sliders held up the best. Haven't tested the Woodcraft on the 07 yet though *knocks on wood*

but they look much more solid and durable than the other sliders I've had
