Frame sliders???

Who has these I have heard good and bad things regarding these. I am thinking about installing some on bike. Does anyone know of any that doesn't require cutting on your fairing. Some that just bolt up to the existing holes? Oh yea I have a 08 honda 600rr.

No-cuts are trash and will only do more harm then good *in a crash over 30mph*


Cuts are the way to go if your gunna put them on. I personally think there for nothing more then parking lot drops

I have crashed twice, at over 30mph. I am thankful for both my frame sliders, and case covers.

I'd like to hear more "first hand" stories of them doing more harm, than good. Most of what I hear about them "digging" in a causing the bike to flip is something they heard someone say.

Not saying I'm right, just sharing my personal experience with (2) 30MPH+ crashes. Both times they did a crapload more good than harm.

Out of all the 50+ wrecks I've seen I can say that it all depends on how you crash and what your bike hits (grass, gravil ect.)

But MOST of the cases I've personally SEEN they did more harm then good.


Parking lot drops....



funny thing is... I've got No-cuts on my streetbike lol

I could only find metal sliders which I rather have the hard plastic , Ive seen plenty ground haveway down and saved a ton of plastics from being replaced.

Mine saved my leftside fairings before digging into mud and snapping off, but I would say they did their job.

As far as going into an engine block, thats a of a hit. I've heard of that happening, but until you put the bike through the same impact, without a slider, and see what happens...I dunno if you can say it did more harm.


Without framesliders, lbjasonc wouldnt have a bike anymore

that over 30mph no good comment don't apply here

my no-cut shogun sliders are champs! they've saved my bike 3 times! 2 of the accidents were over 30mph. I think it would be stupid NOT to have framsliders on ur bike.

im not saying that, all im saying is frame sliders are good to have... And if you saying they arent good becuz they will dig into the moto and all that other ,then i say you will need because you obviously was at a high rate of speed and i dont think anything would stand a chance going into the pavement
