OEM “frame” (case) Sliders?

Anyone used these? I’ve been reading a bunch about the pros and cons of frame sliders, and got myself spooked about the fragility of the frame spar they mount to. These seem like an interesting alternative because they mount like case savers, but give a little more standoff.

Pretty good installation instructions on Kawi’s site:

I personally don't like to drill in the OEM fairings so I went for a no cut sliders, but if you don't mind drilling then Woodcraft is second to none.

Any time you have multiple points of contact you reduce the chances of a bending force shearing something off. The wider base requires much more leverage to cause damage. Triangulation is key.

The elongated shape of the puck also helps prevent digging in, promoting a sliding action to further reduce that leverage force.

It looks like the main load is still on the bolt going through the spar, but should be spread through that plate to the engine cover bolt pattern. Better than a generic single point 'slider'.

The rail systems stunters developed go one better and tie into the frame at multiple points.... Far stronger, overall.
