Help: Frame Sliders for 2008 SV650SF

I have a 2008 SV650SF and really want to put frame sliders on it. However, the only two options I know of are motosliders and the R & G Sliders.

The motosliders are much cheaper but require that I cut through the fairings in order be able to mount them. The R&G are double the cost of motosliders but they are designed to fit on the fully faired SV650 without the need to cut the fairings.

So my question is, does anyone here have a fully faired sv650 with sliders on it, and if you do, what brand is it and did you have to cut the fairings. Pictures would be nice too as I can see how they look and make a better decision. Would hate to purchase the motosliders to save my self a few bucks and end up up the fairings which would end up costing me more than if I would have purchased the R&G sliders.

Thanks in advance.

i'd go w/ the moto sliders, put playdo on the backside of the fairing to help you line up the hole properly.

but RG makes good stuff also, just 2x the price.

I would say go w/the no-cut sliders if you can, in the end you have to decide if you want to save money and cut into the plastics or spend more to keep the plastics in factory condition for a lil while longer

just cut it. nonecut sliders dont hold up as well as the ones that mount directly. iv seen (none cut sliders) done more harm than good to the bike at bad crashes.

hope this helps

Is that a nervous giggle I hear... j/k... I love the Kawi ZZR600, but love the ability to flip the bike over from one lean to the next instantly.

racer X, yes I taken MSF, and good idea about the playdo for lining up the cut marks.

About the durability of the nocut sliders, I have heard good things about the R&G's holding up, its just that I also heard about it not supporting the fairing correctly or what not, so wanted to get an idea of how the fairing hold with the noncut sliders.

they have a L shaped mounting braket. one side goes on where the engine usually bolts to the frame. the second side extends and sticks out from where the faring ends and you mount the slider on that.
the problem is however the L shaped part causing the frame slider to exert a torque on the edge if the L and bends it causing it to dig into engine head ( thats what hapend to tatools R1 at msrh a while back).

and no they dont hold up as well because. torque = Force * lever arm
even if it as short as few inches that multiplied by the momentom of the bike landing on it well... do the math.

Thanks to all for the info.. I went ahead and got the motosliders... hopefully I don't screw up the fairings when cutting it, otherwise, might have to ride naked for a while.... the bike that is...

Thanks again.

Nate's Motosliders are the best out there, and I've crashed SVs plenty to know!

Totally worth it.

Just check SVRider.com and look for "Nate's Motosliders" or "Motosliders" in a search and you'll see what I mean. Folks with SVs all over the country agree on the Motosliders.

Dang, I should've mentioned that you should hit up Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited for these, he gives killer prices...

Darn a bit too late... oh well, deal wasn't that bad in my opinion, $99 for frame sliders and swing arm sliders set. Comparing to $189 for the R&G Frame Sliders only, I feel I already got a big bargain....

Well, don't worry about me, I don't think I will be competing to beat your record... I hope I don't have to test them out.
