Buell frame saver

After browsing on the Buell site I found that they were selling frame saver for Buells, Anybody have an opinion on those?

Not sure but, usually worth the money.
They save hundreds on repairs in a crash or tip over.
Got any pic's?

The Buell frame takes a hit in most any fall!

Those are Buell frame pucks and they are worth there weight in gold. They have been tested by riders from www.badweatherbikers.com several times. I think even on person went down at around 80+ mph with out any frame damage. The Buell is made to have the triple tree break away from the frame to help save on damages. If the frame gets a dent in it it is very costly to fix since it holds the fuel to. So put them on your Buell if you can.

I thought the break away triple tree was a safety thing to protect the gas in the frame.

Not hard... the easiest way is to click the "Post reply" button, then just use the "manage attachments" button below the submit post/reply button and bang!

I am also thinking of picking up a set of the frame pucks let me know if you have any trouble putting them on i read on another forum that a guy had trouble with his wanting to come loose at the bottom.

Lucky... I don't understand why you wouldn't get them. The Demo day Buells had them and I couldn't see owning the bike w/o them. Just as standard drame sliders on any other Jap bike!

Lucky those look nice. And with as short as they are I don't think there will be any worry about those sliders turning into large levers.

I went to Badweatherbikers site yesterday and I say the sliders you are talking about, they sound easy to installed, its agood way to securise important parts of the bike and they look great!!!! . Probably the next parts (safety wise) for the bike. I am seriously thinking about a Jardine exhaust,(performance talking)
