Are you going to be stunting? Otherwise you will not want extended frame sliders.

If it's for a track / racebike I wouldn't run extended sliders. At track sppeds the extended sltders have more leverage and are more likely to snap of the mounting point, actually causing more damage than they prevent.
Yeah there's a lot of cheap sliders out there, mostly made from inferior material or design so they snap / crumble when impacted.
I'd recommend sliders made of Delrin with heavy aluminum inserts and high quality plated bolts. The $10 - $20.00 you save buying junk may come back to haunt you when they don't perform correctly.

As long as the sliders are T-6 6061 Billet or carbon. The ones I had on my bike when I went down last year at HRP at 137mph saved my bike and trust me its a long slide at that speed!
