Need help on decision for frame sliders

hey guys sorry to make another thread on frame sliders. I can't decide on whether to get motivations frame sliders or R&G frame sliders, im going for no cut ones b/c i dont want to cut my fairings and thats what frame sliders are suppose to partly protect in the first place but i just don't know which ones to get. So any input would be nice if you have either maybe u could post up a picture?

I know it's not what you want to hear but take the time to cut the fairings its worth it. Of course this is my opinion I've never used the no cut style seems like a gamble.

+1

The cut sliders are worth it. No cuts can do much more damage then they prevent in anything other than a driveway drop.

I have the Motivation "race" version, the ones where you have to cut the fairings. I dropped my bike last night coming off a sidewalk and they did a great job. I thought I was too far over and grabbed the brake in a panic, then lost my balance and fell over kinda like slow motion. The frame slider and tail have small scratches, everything else is fine. I'll probably replace that puck but it's only cosmetic.

I'd definitely recommend the Motivation race version, the no-cut version seems like you're paying more than double for an inferior product. The OES look nice also, almost the same except the logo doesn't get messed up after one little drop like mine...

i had orig bought the OES ones, but after seeing the Woodcrafts on a buddies bike i went with then. Lower profile solid puck which i prefered. Without a doubt the strongest part to bolt your silder is to your frame bolt, i was a bit hesitant to cut at first, but theres not much to it to be honest, just have to take your time :) i used the laser method to mark the hold, worked out great

why not buy whichever one looks prettier too you

its quite obvious your determined to get no cuts...so about 90% of the advice you have gotten/will get will be/has been pushed to the side

i think the RG symbol looks prettier the shiny plastic looks more durable

If you go no-cut I like the motovations because they do not create a moment (lever action) across the bracket bc the bracket is supported on both sides.

My friend dropped his bike with the no-cut R&G and they held up great. He had scratches on the tail, mid, and upper cowl. No damage to any of the engine, clutch or crank case. I got a set on mine after seeing how his worked.

It does not move at all. It has a very thick and solid bracket that bolts up behind the engine bolt. You can kinda see it in your photo - the silver thing behind the puck.

Not to mention it's not your usual cylindrical shape.

I thought sliders were to protect the fairings? and fairings protect the engine, so sliders would in turn protect both

Pretty sure they are to protect the frame. And if they happen to protect your fairings in an accident then that's just a plus.

TREX


R&G
TREX looks cleaner but the R&G seem more wider and more protection. And I'm on the same boat right now (looking for sliders). I'm thinking shogun sliders but those TREX's look dope.

R&G Aero Crash Protectors

I have a set fitted:



I would highly recommend R&G. Even though a small fairing modification is required its a small sacrifice to make given the cost of purchasing OEM fairing replacements or new engine covers.

A product review and how to fit guide can be found in the following thread:

Need help on decision for frame sliders

With the R&G, if they don't stick out as far as the TREX for example, how do they protect the bike more?

Crash Protectors

Most of the named brands like R&G, Woodcraft, Gilles et al, all offer pretty much the same level of protection. Every crash is different so what has worked for one individual may not work for another. Crash protectors like the R&G ones I have fitted, and like the others mentioned, are there to mitigate the worst of any potential damage mainly to the frame and engine. If they save anything else consider that to be a bonus. From experience I lowsided my previous RR7 on a trackday a few years ago and I was using R&G Crash Protectors. They saved the engine casings, frame and lower fairings. The damage sustained was predominantly cosmetic to the rear cowl and to the clip-ons. In my opinion any crash protection you add is worthwhile simply to lower the cost of putting things right in the event of an 'off.'
