I'd suggest frame, and swingarm sliders. what kind, and cut/no cut is entirely up to you.

All the sliders for the 9R should be no-cut.

DO NOT get the small set that go into the fairing!

DO NOT get the LP carbon inlay set!

Go onto EBay and get the Shogun set for the frame. Then get a set of swingarm sliders/spools. I can provide pics to show why!

Gas, do you have any old pics of where your sliders were located on your 9R before you sold it? I ask because I want to get sliders but the one's I see for my 7R, you have to cut the fairing and they seem to be located to high to be effective.

FYI....sliders aren't necessarily meant to save plastic. They save the Frame. You will reduce fairing damage but you'll still have scrapes should you take a spill. Be careful!



Unless you get those long ass ones that Bike Master has on his Busa!

For some reason I have visions of those long sliders causing more harm than good... Raising the CG possibly causing the bike to flip and dispersing the weight more heavily on other areas as the bike slides...

He will have to chime in, but I think I remember him saying that everyone in his area has the same sort of looooooooonnnnnnnggggg sliders... He is in the mid-East IRRC...

OK...here we go...

My first set...
LP Carbon Inlay set...



The new LP Carbon Inlay swingarm sliders/spools



After my highside... and the reason I say don't buy these LP junk!


The LP Inlay swingarm slider did ok though...


The Shogun replacement sliders... much nicer


Shogun swingarm set.



Then I added a set of fork sliders as well... but I believe these were intended for a 6R but they also fit my 9R.
