Hey guys,

I looked around alot to find if anyone
who had their experiences with woodcraft
frame sliders, im leaning towards those more.
But the only thing thats stopping me
from ordering them, is that it looks like it
only protrudes from the fairing about an inch
while other brands stick out more. I know, if it
sticks out more theres more of a chance of it
to catch on to something and flip the bike, but
when i look at my bike and picture the woodcraft
on it, it seems like my pipe is gonna get F**ked up
if i lay it down *knocks on wood* The motovation
frame sliders seem to have a good length that i would
prefer, but i see a bunch of people say that woodcraft
sliders are one of the best or some times "the best" frame
sliders out there.

Also i was looking around the forum
for a good write up on how to install "cut" frame sliders and i
came across one that was supposedly for an 08 r6, and there
was a picture on there that showed the leftside of the bike
and the bolt was exposed. When i look at my bike my leftside
bolt isnt exposed and i have an 08 r6. I have no problem with the
"cut style" frame sliders, even though i prefer the no-cuts, but
im most likely going to go with the "cut style" ones because i heard
that they hold up better in an event of an unfortunate accident.

Anything helps, Links opinions, etc. Thanks again everyone be safe.

frame sliders protect, well, the frame - not your plastics or anything else. if they're too long, they can do a lot more harm than good. scratched plastics = bruised ego. bent frame = totaled bike.

I have Woodcraft frame sliders on my 6 and they are great. Very durable product and you can't go wrong with them.

longer frame sliders can snap off on impact.

if your wanting something to protect plastics, look into a cage or something. frame sliders very rarely keep the plastics from bieng touched.

This is a no brainer. Woodcraft hands down. I've been crashing on them for the past 2 seasons and haven't found a better slider.:toocool:

Ive got the Motovation sliders, I love em they look great. That's a tough one between the two, they are both some kick ass products at that point its pretty much preference.

I've heard millions of great things about the Woodcraft sliders. I strayed away from them though because I wanted no-cut sliders. I did a LOT of research and the best I could determine for no-cut sliders was the Motovation's. I went with those and the extended bar for the no-cut is the thickest and most durable piece of metal I've seen for a no-cut slider.

I haven't crash tested them *knock on wood*, but they look great and I have full confidence in them.

Woodcraft definately...i have "tested a bunch of different sliders and Woodcrafts have by far held up the best. They are shorter then most sliders but what i found from other sliders designs is...no-cuts bend at the bracket making them even shorter than Woodcrafts in a crash or because of the puck design the puck can rip off just leaving the bike to slide on the bolt. Woodcraft overall design is much sronger and it holds up during a crash

Everything woodcraft makes is top notch. Go with their sliders.

I have had to use a reciprocating saw to cut off one of those 'beer can' sliders just so I could get at the mounting bolt.... woodcraft's design fixes that problem.

And please tell them I sent you when you order.
