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...

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.

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

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!!

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
