These are the only Tank Sliders I’ve seen, but I haven’t looked that hard either. They are $120.00 so a little more than a good set of frame sliders. I like them since they have the Yamaha emblem on them. I’m sure you could have them painted to match.

how do those things attach? i've been saving for a full "race set up" body "kit" and was trying to figure out whether or not to get a banged up tank or just risk it. this seems like it might be a middle ground. (but i don't wanna leave em on all the time... i don't think)

i think i would invest in these for a track day.i believe the main reason people are using these is to minimize the risk of your bike going up in flames.

they are held on my double sided 3m tape. they are ugly but it looks better than a bike on fire.
they do look better than the other ones i saw on a forum. they almost covered the whole whole tank.
i got a good laugh out of there disclaimer when i saw it the other day.

The traxxions are good. They saved my bike once already at the track.




The ETI sliders offer more coverage but the install requires a little more work and some paint.

I'm putting another set of traxxions on my new tank.

I believe they are to keep the tank from puncturing and catching the bike on fire, not actually saving the tank from damage
