sliders

I use R&G sliders. As you can see the uppers and lowers blend in nicely with the bike......The lowers give you much needed clutch protection also.

I have also tested their worth on one of my previous bikes and they are worth their weight in gold!

I have Graves frame sliders and they did a decent job of protecting my bike when it went down. the Earache barend sliders helped quite a bit too :)

you also want to invest in a good set of spool sliders to protect your swing arm. I had a cheap set on and they snapped clean off and cost me the swingarm, so now I have Shogun :thumbup

How hard was the impact? I personally think the Graves sliders are too short and bend too easily. I'd recommend at least replacing the mounting bolt with one of a stronger grade.

I highsided at about 40mph and the frame slider on the right side was ground down about an inch. the plastics were a little rashed up but they survived and I still have them on. The sliders stayed on just fine and the mount didn't bend so it seems pretty strong to me...
