Re: frame sliders on a superbike? (killer bee)

Proper framesliders are designed to break off at certain forces under certain applied angles.

This way if you slap your bike against the pavment really hard, instead of a long grinding lowside, they'll just brake off and not bend your frame.

Bottom line, there's always a risk that frameslider will make some damage to your bike, but with good models it's much lower, and (you guys can correct me if i am wrong) ... you're much more likely to low side on the track than have a nasty highside.

Framesliders will absolutely save your bike if it's sliding 50yards + on the pavement.

Must have really for the track bike.

The benefits outway the risks. I just installed Cycle Cat sliders on my 999 this weekend.

Re: frame sliders on a superbike? (negativegs)

The CycleCat frame sliders are definitely worth the investment. They pay for themselves on every lowside and will save you some agony if you ever park your bike on very hot asphalt and it tips over

Do you usually cut the stock side panels to install the sliders?

Re: (VoyagerDude)

On a 999, yes you have to cut holes. Unfortunately, the sliders fall right at the joint on the side panels. I installed aftermarket bodywork to keep my stock bodywork stock with no holes.
