IMO framesliders are for low speed crashes and tip overs. I know several people who have gone down at "faster" speeds and had them break motor mounts, frame tabs, and even cause the bike to flip. I wouldnt put them on my machine.

The sv designed sliders bolt through the engine and are quite good. Didn't know if a similiar design existed to ss bikes.

It's a gamble. My Woodcraft sliders have saved my track bike from more serious damage a few times.

I know others that have had the sliders turn a simple slide into a Greek tragedy. (not sure on which brands and types of sliders)



I will continue to use them. The ones I use on the CBR are Woodcraft cut sliders.

The puck is bolted in from the side so that the retention screw is less likely to get damaged in a crash. They're very low profile. Just enough to save the engine casing, but that's about it.
