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.
