uuhmm are you asking what a swing arm is????
well just in case you are asking what it is. Its that big piece of metal in the back of your bike that holds the rear wheel... =)
Sterring Damper is a "shock" kind of thing that stabilizes your front to the rest of your bike. Its mounted on your sterring column. It helps you avoid "tankslaps" which are when your sterring wheel gets out of control and quickly turns right to left and it makes your whole bike shake. By having sterring damper on your bike, your handling is much tigher depending on what kind of riding you do...
I hope this helps... :boobies

Frame sliders are pegs that bolt on to your bike so in case of an accident the bike slides on the pegs and not on the engine covers and such.
