I got the big ones. I leave mine on, if I go down, they may protect my swing arm.

Spools stay on. Crash protection.

I originally had the fattie spools on mine, but my rear stand didn't grab them really well because the spool neck was much wider than the throat of the fork catch on the stand. I had to go with the mini spools to make lifting the bike much safer.

We've had good luck with the Shogun sliders and keep them in stock for most bikes. If you'd like to see them stop by Motorcycles Unlimited anytime.

I picked up the harbor freight ones last week, rang up at $1.97. They are aluminum and work with a spool stand great.
