Re: best slider for GSXR

Wait, you bought a 1000 as a first bike?



Either sell it or park it and buy something dmaller like an R3 or Ninja 300 to learn on.

Re: best slider for GSXR

They are called "frame" sliders. Not lever sliders, not fairing sliders. They are designed to save your frame, nothing else.

And what I am telling is not to worry about that. They are designed to save yoir frame, nothing else. Not your levers, not your fairings.

Re: best slider for GSXR

R&G racing I have fitted. They have been tested personally and they work. Saved frame damage. Also protect your engine cases and even saved my fairing during a front lowide crash.
They are great protectors and come with a threaded spike to accurately mark where the center of the hole needs to be cut.

Suzuki GSXR1000 Aero Style Crash Protectors CP0201BL CP0201WH

It's very easy cutting the hole. I too was scared about ruining my fairing but take your time and its an easy process.
STAY AWAY FROM NO CUT SLIDERS - THEY DON'T WORK

ah, that makes sense then. its the brand

often a good frame slider will indeed save your fairings as well as engine cases, mirror levers etc depending on the speed of the drop and how it goes down. But the fact is they arent designed for that so dont count on them to do so.

woodcraft seem to be noted as the best and toughest, especially for high stress applications like on the race track. nonetheless, alot of other good sliders (cut style) can be very good and more than up to the job. e.g. yoshimura, R&G, Shogun etc etc.

Re: best slider for GSXR

You can get no cut frame sliders from ebay for around $20 GSXR 1000 Frame Sliders | eBay
But I would recommend woodcraft
You can also get sliders for your Front & Rear Wheel Fork Axle Slider Protector, also in ebay
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/like/1319...pid=107&chn=ps

But for your levers, If you drop they will break, as they are soft metal. I changed mine to blue Aluminum levers. Looks great with the bar ends, also in Blue aluminum. Better don't drop the bike and look after it when you park or store the bike. Can easily scratch the fairings, paint and stickers.

Re: best slider for GSXR

I've went down with Shogun (cut type) sliders once and they saved most my bike (L6 750). Replaced with Shogun again ($40). I would assume Woodcrafts ($70) are better though (based on reputation and price only), but I've never had them or seen them tested so I don't know for sure.

The non-cut type typically have a weak connection and tend to break and fail to do its job. Suck it up and cut your fairings if you want to add frame sliders.
