How good are sliders really when you crash? Are they only good for slow speed crashes or are they good for high speed crashes????? I don't have any so I want to know before I spend my hard earn cash...

From what I've heard and read, they're good for both... I've heard that if they're too long, or metal, they may end up causing your bike to flip instead of slide, once you've low sided... all are good for slow speed drops, if attached properly to the frame...

Sliders

Cool thanx. Like I said b4 I don't have any. I have been riding for about 2-3 months and haven't laid it down.... Knock on wood...
Now that I said that, I will.

they can save you mega $$ in a low side at any speed. In a high side thats no real stopping the damages from end over end

Consider side fairings cost around $360+ from the dealer and a set of $70 sliders (Vortex) can save them from getting all trashed. You do the math

Dont get cheap ones or metal ones. Make sure they are derlin so they slide.

I have a set of R&G sliders on my bike, I like them quite a bit. Very easy to install, look nice, and are well worth the cost.

Hope you never have to use them!

Me to. So far I have been lucky. I have almost lost it about a few days ago. I put my foot down 2 stop and my foot slipped.

BIG TIME!!! No metal or anything other than derlin.

Further, those look great. Very nice drilling job too!

sliders

I have a set on my ride. They were great when I slid in the sand at the shop. I wasn't even moving forward, I had stopped at the stop sign and lost my footing on the left side. It was too heavy to stop from going over and she just went down on the slider. One of the guys picked it up before I could even get out one good cuss.
I said thanks and went on my way. When I checked her out once I got home, you couldn't even tell she went down.
Damn Sand!!!
Now I keep my eyes WIDE open.

More importantly, in a high speed crash they will usually prevent your frame from getting ground away... that's even bigger $$.
