Frame Sliders

So I am still shopping around for some frame sliders and want what's best for both my bike and pocket book

I would like to know what kind you use, how much, and y you chose it

I didn't get much response in the other thread sections so I figured it would be best for a debate topic

thanks in advanced for your opinion

ps : might head up to Motorcycles Unlimited today

whatever you decide to spend...frame sliders end up saving you a lot more if you drop your bike. I recommend you get them, just in case.

I'm not sure if the gsxr has the option cut or no-cut sliders but if you have the option definitely get the cut sliders. They are those that require cutting a hole in the fairing. If no-cut sliders are offered then they offset the sliders from the engine bolt and WILL bend if you go down. If you go cheap on sliders and they bend they can actually damage the frame which is what you are trying to avoid doing to begin with. Just my .02. Good luck.

so its better to spend like $150+ rather then cheap ebay ones?

I just got a pair of the black delrin sliders that Motorcycles Unlimited has. Not expensive, nothing special but they work.

Well, I want it to be soft (to an extent), know what I mean?
