R & G racing. Tested and true. They survived sliding off of the track and did not flip the bike, but they "bent" properly that there was no damage to the frame. Very good quality stuff but probably on the higher side of the pricing compared to cheap eBay crap.

Not sure if GB Racing makes sliders for the bike yet (they do make engine sliders) but that would be my second choice.

If money wasn't an issue, I'd go with Puig Pro since they will protect against drops (as most frame sliders will) but more importantly, unlike 99% of the frame sliders out there, these are designed not to "flip" your bike in the case of a accident. The shape helps your bike slide while protecting your fairing and FRAME. Other frame sliders are long and cylindrical in shape. Look at the shape of the Puig Pros and then compare then to OES/Shogun/R&G/Woodcraft and you will see what I mean

Shogun no-cut. It's what I have on my bike right now although I plan to switch to Puig Pro or maybe T-Rex whenever I can.

It's less about brand and more about construction. Sliders used to be cool looking aluminum. Now they make mostly plastic. Whatever you get, make sure the ENDS are plastic. Metal can "catch" or "snag" on asphalt, resulting in unpredictable results. Plastic is soft enough to where it will shear and slide better on pavement. Plan on paying at least $100 for good ones.

There will be cut, no cut. All good ones will bolt to frame and require torque to break loose and torque wrench to tighten. You're not getting it done
with l-shaped or reg t-shaped Allen wrenches.

Personally I have older style Puigs.


LSL pioneered the puck-style slider.

I have a set of brand new Woodcraft sliders never installed if you are interested.

By the way Woodcraft is owned by 2 brothers 1 retired from racing the other still racing so these guys know their stuff when it comes to crash protection. Really awesome guys too met and talked with them several times when I lived back home in Massachusetts.
