So my girlfriend has finally given me the ok to spend some money on my new R6. I figure I better get some sliders before my bike gets tipped over. I am pretty much between the graves sliders or the ones from motovation. My question is, which ones should I go with. The ones from motovation look stronger, but I know I had all metal ones on my last r6 and when it went down the bike flipped because the sliders didn't have any give. Any other ones I should consider? I want to get no cut sliders because I don't want to cut my body work.

Thanks guys

I went with woodcrafts myself just ordered them....All the track stars swear by it so I would trust there opinion....they see more crashes then any one...

FYI both of my local bike shops told me to stay away from shogun sliders. All the lowsides with shogun all of the plastic melted off.

Woodcraft! It's better to cut a little half moon in your plastic than to replace fairings AND have scratches on the frame and case cover becase your "no cuts" broke off.

No, no joint accounts or anything like that. My friend was seriously injured in a crash a couple of months ago, and she still hasn't gotten over it. So she doesn't want me to have the bike, let alone spend more money on it... Thanks for all of the suggestions guys, I appreciate it

+10 on woodcraft.

I went with no-cuts at first, but they sucked and one of the pucks completely came off the bracket one day-hadn't been dropped or anything, just fell off on day. Bought woodcraft, cut the fairings myself, and installed-took maybe 2-3 hours.

I haven't cut them myslef but I have installed sidemarkers on a car, which is cutting through metal, same concept. mark a radious of where it needs to be cut, adn if you have a dremel (which I highly recommend) you can go straight in the center of your circle like a drill, then just slowly widen the circle, randomly checking to see if the slider fit's through, just be sure to go really slow when getting near the end. It's easy to make the circle bigger, but you can't make it smaller.

actually, with the S model, it's usually better to use the putty/holesaw method. however, with the reg R6, just slowly widen the crescent that u need to cut out. everyone has a slightly different method but they all usually work
