09-14 R1 Tank Crash Protector

I am not talking about the techspec/stompgrip tank pads! just wondering what crash protectors everyone is running for 09-14 R1. and WHERE did you purchase it from? the previous owner of my bike had a crash and minor scratch/dent where the tank protector would go. im thinking of getting the R&G carbon protector. I want to cover it up and also prevent more damage to the tank if i something ever happens.

Thanks!

Frame sliders go a long way in terms of protection. A frame slider would more than likely protect your tank. This is what I had on my 14 and I dropped my bike twice when I lost my footing and absolutely zero damage

Now, on my 16 I have a stunt cage.

Are those bar ends weighed? Looking for something to maybe cut a little high frequency vibrations at 80-85mph

my 09 has all exact bits. Shogun does some great work.

specifically THIS kit, as the machined brackets that extend out of the body work to hold the pucks are an art form onto themselves

I have the R&G on mine. The fit was perfect, and I have zero issues with them.

I was in the same boat as you, wanted bar end sliders but didn't want the buzz at speed. I wasn't able to find much... pretty much either one or the other. Then I found these, and they're freaking great. Weighted bar end sliders!

I was running the shogun no cuts for awhile but then a guy at the track that analyzes accidents came over to me and put a bug in my brain. He asked me why I used those instead of case sliders and made some good points. His main point that he made is that most of the time frame sliders in certain scenarios cause the bike to dig in and begin to flip and cause more damage or even the frame being bent in even minor crashes which if claimed will result in a salvage title. He gave me a percentage in comparison of total losses at the track of bikes with sliders vs case covers and the sliders were way higher in totaled bikes . Instead of just replacing bars, plastics, basically bolt on cheaper parts. My sliders have saved my bike in two small incidents where case covers would not have. I dono it's just something to think about, I've switched my sliders out because I plan on more track days this year and it's surrounded by grass that will grab and flip it if I crash.

track day junkies and their chasing chances % of total failure.. why would you do that to yourself

whatever makes you happy, if a bike is gonna flip when it hits grass i dont think its gonna be from the puny little slider puck.. but i'm no racer so have at it.

It really depends on how fast a rider you are, most track day falls are not of extreme speeds 'cause we're mere mortals. The really fast guys
have more of a chance of that actually happening but the circumstances really have to be perfect. For your average track day star this is
very rare indeed. The topic has come up in several forums over the years and most bikes slide for a little bit and sliders never dig in enough
to cause a flip.. They just stop dead on their tracks as they hit the grass, or short there after.. You can cause 1k in damage from dropping
a bike in the parking lot, without having actually ridden it, depending on bike.

every crash is different and the end result will be different as well, entirely too many variables from bike to bike and puck to puck to really make the % numbers mean much

Sounds like he knows his sh*t.


Or at least pretends that he does....

The speed has nothing to do with it, if you have the tube shape sliders sticking out past everything else, (which is the point) and you slide into some grass it will dig in and when it hits a hard spot or a rock it will flip even at 20mph lol I'm not the expert here but the guy that pointed it out to me was lol I said that I had shogun sliders on my bike too just like everybody else. The last time my bike hit the ground I wasn't even moving and the bolt that goes into the frame that holds the slider to the bike bent and could have easily bent my frame or stripped the threads. He was only referring to the larger sliders that stick out very far, not the tiny ones on your axles or bars. Juat thought I would share what I was told by an expert that analyzes all the accidents that happen at all their track days which is a lot, my last day there were 5+ in one day and two were pretty bad so I would say he might know a thing or two about it but if you wanna call me the track junkie have at it lol I'll take it as a compliment
