You'll need to cut. I know yours is an 08 and mine is an 07, but I have woodcraft and I had to cut BOTH sides. You'll need to do the same, the difference is not that much. My buddy just got an '08 and he put some vortex sliders on there and had to cut. (Vortex are skinner than woodcraft). Honestly, the cutting wasn't very hard. We did it with a Gerber Knife, drill with an 1/8" bit, and sand paper. Took about 3 hours and was actually really easy. Go for the woodcraft-the kick total ass!

^ Good call. Shogun's suck IMO. I had Shogun no cuts on mine and it fell right off the bracket! One day I looked and it was gone, thus the switch to Woodcraft:)

i have the woodcraft cuts...best slider ive have so far. you'll have to cut the clutch side, but i didnt have to cut the brake side (its gunna slide a little on the lower fairing, but doesnt scratch it). thing that irratates me for the cut sliders, is everytime you do an oil change...gotta take that damn slider off to get the fairing off lol. but its a SMALL inconvienence compared to how good cuts are to no cuts
