I've only had to use mine once when my bike fell over in the garage. Not sure what all of a difference it would make going down fast. I have no cut sliders forgot brand. Not cheap ebay ones, but we did have to shave some of the fairing to have them fit.

Ive also seen bikes fall over without them and they were fine too.

1. I think they're ugly
2. They're not going to help if your bike flips
3. Sometimes they can catch and cause your bike to flip

Exactly true. If your going to get some I recommend the woodcraft. There the shortest ones and are basicly just to save the FRAME and nothing elese. Get some case covers too if you go that route.

Yup woodcraft are the best. Very short and easy to replace

It's probably best just to keep your bike in the garage, never touch it, and only take and post pics of it. That way it will stay all nice and pretty and safe

You never want to touch the bike as it could be dropped

While I agree with most here that frame sliders suck. For a tip over at a light, in the garage, parking lot, whatever. It is nice to have frame sliders. Cut or no cut doesn't matter for that purpose. If you are going faster than 5 miles an hour yea they aren't going to do . Ever wonder why you don't see motogp bikes with frame sliders?

They worked when i low slided. No damage to the fairings, levers, or clip ons. They are useless in motogp since they are going over 100mph. Nothing will help them if they crash.

1) ATTGAT right? which cost more fairings or sliders?
2) other than fairings being the least of your worries in the event of a high-side/flip, it's my understanding is that a low-side crash is a lot more common than a high-side. (If anyone knows the actual statistics I would love to know)
3) I have seen this happen, but it was only because the person had an absurdly long slider. (May have been on MH)

How do you feel about the sliders shown in this vid. (Sorry I don't know what they are called)

If I wanted to be 100% safe I'd only drive a Volvo.

If you feel you need sliders, getcha some sliders. FYI, they won't help you if a car pulls out right in front of you or you get rear ended. Does your bike have ABS brakes? Might think about that
