Frame slider question

I want to mount frame sliders on my bike... which are best structurally? The ones mounted dead on, or the ones that have the offset bracket to make it where you don't have to cut holes in your plastic. I don't care about the holes if they are better.....

Everything is give and take.

I selected sliders for my bike, the short ones that would mount to the engine / frame , cut the hole type,

But then I never installed them.

Reason:
The ones with their own bracket , no fairing cut from what I have read and heard tend to break off in hard impact.

The frame/ engine mounted ones are tougher , but then I read that is fine until the bike leaves the road and hits softer dirt where the pegs will dig in and cause the bike to roll or even snap off at the engine/ frame mount possibly breaking that too.

Hope others have abetter opinion for you.

Good luck

Frame mounted is best.

educate me if im wrong but just a thought. IF the bike went down considerable hard and a direct mount frame slider was present(if it was strong enough). is it possible for it to maybe crack/bend the frame(slightly)? when compared to the off set no cut sliders?? if they went down the support bracket would absorb and/or break increaseing other damages but decreasing frame damage?

now i realize that most cases doesnt result in that hard of an impact but im just asking a question trying to learn


IM NOT SAYING THAT EITHER ONE IS BETTER. just trying to learn here

and on a side note i looked at some for my bike
<<< i see on some one slider is slightly shorter than the other? why?

Frame mt are stronger, the offset type are for sure better than nothing. On some bikes - 1 is longer than the other because the place where they get mounted is not equal distance off the centerline of the bike, they need to be different lengths to stick out equal distance from the centerline of the bike.
