So, I'm just about ready to purchase a lot of sliders for my bike :D

Looking to go with Motovation on all of them.

Right now, I'm set on:

The race (cut) frame sliders

Fork sliders - Debating weather i should get these or not

Bar ends / slider - Not sure which I've decided on yet. The Yamaha specific bar end is heavier and would reduce more vibration but its huge ! On the other hand, the Motovation universal bar end is smaller & looks better but... it doesn't weigh as much. Which one would you go with?

Now for swing arm sliders and rear axle sliders ... Are these both necessary? It seems like if i had the rear axle slider the swing arm slider would be kinda pointless since it sticks out more. Of course, its always better to have both , Im sure, but like i said... is it essential?
Would you get just the rear axle slider, just the swing arm slider, or both?

Any input would be greatly appreciated !!

both wouldn't be needed. If you want to do something double to for protection check out r&g's top and bottom frame sliders. The swingarm parts are mostly for lifting the bike more then they are protection. If one set of those doesn't stop damage then nothing will. Frame sliders are the most damaged parts normally then fork sliders. R&G did an upper and lower frame sliders this way the bottom one helps absorb a low slide and then when you're completely sideways the upper one will help protect the upper part of the bike.

You can get both as it won't hurt anything, but rarely do people call for replacement swingarm spools...it's mostly frame sliders

Yah, the more i look into it I think I've narrowed it down to:

- Race frame sliders (cut)
- Rear axle slider
- Fork slider
- Maybe Bar ends. I don't really ride long distances so still debating if this is worth spending on.
