I would be concerned with high centering on the track. But i havent seen them on a bike to see if they would hit and when.

They've been around for a bit. The most popular was Powers Race Rails. A lot of people liked them on Kawiforums that used them.

Thumbs up

I have the RaceRailz from PowerStuntWorx... been using them for over 2 years.

Pros (only about this brand and model):
.- Protect more than regular frame sliders (I know)
.- Use on the track does not interfere with body movement or bike lean angle
.- Good quality material
.- No need bike body work modification

Cons:
.- Pricier than regular frame sliders
.- Heavier than regular frame sliders
.- Not too many brands to choose from

I would never change my racerailz

a friend of mine has it on his r6 and crashed 3 times. It does it job pretty well. Worth the money, imo.

Considering I've seen people drag bodywork on several different models, its hard to say for sure whether these would limit cornering.
