vortex is decent in a low speed crash but I'd say anything over 40 they wont do much good at all. I dropped it at about 10mph and it caved in. I liked intuitive a lot...but they are pricey. I think shoguns are pretty similar to intuitives.
Post pics of the Shoguns please.Nessal said:I have the shoguns and they really stick out. They should be good for dropping at speed...not that you would want to. If you want pics, let me know. Shogun is a pretty decent deal for what you get.
couldnt agree with you more...and to add to that remember the torque = force * distance...so more torque will be applied to the bolt and frame if you use the longer slider...i personally have the woodcrafts and couldnt be happier with them...they have a clean look and have replaceable pucks...sooperman12 said:Longer sliders tend to end up with their bolts bent in a slide. Think about the leverage and force being applied to a slider when the bike goes down at speed. The plastic things that stick out of the hole in your fairings are called FRAME sliders not FAIRING sliders. Some sliders will stick out real far and if you put the bike on it (at rest), it'll look like you'll have tons of clearance. Only problem is, when they grind down in a slide and the bolt bends, you're going to have not only messed up plastics (in some cases) but a heck of a time trying to pull the bolt out. They save the frame, not the fairing. If you want to save the fairing, get a stunt cage.
