Hey guys, what do you recomment to buy for frame sliders? Brand, Price anything really would help out. Also can I get the ones that go on the back wheel? Like pegs on a bike kinda? I am new to bikes but know how to ride one and just went and bought an R6.

the back ones are called spool sliders and double as a back stand lift point.

found a set of shogun sliders on ebay, spools, middle and handlebar sliders for $100

So the rear ones are called Spool Sliders and the ones that go on the frame are just Sliders? Are they hard to install? Im going to buy them this weekend.

Easy to install, get no cut frame sliders, so you don't have to cut into your fairings, the spool should(I don't what type of bike you have) turn in like a screw into your swingarm.

I just saw a video of a cage that you can put on the bike. I think I want to go that route. Where can I buy one those, anyone know?

I have shogun on mine and they took about 15mins to install. Make sure you get "no cut" sliders. I think shogun does make CUT required sliders for the 06-08's.

Woodcraft CUT sliders FTW! If you do it right(which is easy) they look great and i trust them much more than the No-Cuts i had on which bent when i went down.

Here are my woodcraft cut frame slider and spool. Was not that hard to do and they look great. And for the spool you just use an allen key with a little blue loctite. Also use some for the frame slider, use a little bit of blue loctite.

I just wrecked my bike on the LVMS track - the woodcraft sliders saved my bike from sooo much damage, i'll be buying them again when i fix my bike up. you do have to cut the fairings a little but its worth it.

if i could just find where the tank sliders are - my bike caught fire from a hole in the tank from sliding on the pavement.

Motovation frame sliders are the way to go. Great company and had excellent customer service with them. I ordered fork sliders, frame sliders, spools, and axle sliders from them. With the fork sliders, i over torqued the bolt and they sent me a new adapter + screws for free when i told them about it. Good stuff !

They're sliders are very good quality and will definitely hold up in a crash. I had the 07 R6 Cut sliders btw.

Does anyone here know of good online stores to buy the cage for the bike? I really like how it looks and seems to protect it more.

I have seen some stuff out there but i never know what to buy and if quantity (1) 34.99 for sliders is 1 slider or 1 set of sliders. In other words do i need quantity 1 or 2 to have them on both sides?

Shame you had to cut your fairings.:thumbdown
