Noob; I'm gonna need crash bars

Hey guys,
I just bought an 06 sv650s for my first road bike, because I wanted something that I can keep nice and for as long as possible.
In that spirit, I think a set of crash bars or sliders as I have seen them called before. I have found sets for the pre '02s but cant find any for the '06es.
Little help please?

Frame sliders is what you're looking for. There are alot of SV owners around here. Someone will help you out.

motosliders are what you want, best ones for the SV. If you have fairings or planning to get fairings, you want the R&G sliders.

Sliders don't protect your paint and a lot of stuff, they are just meant to protect the frame or swingarm. You can still ruin a bunch of stuff with sliders. Crash bars is what he wants if he wants to protect as much bike as he can.

Are you going to put the fairings on your SV is the question you have to decide. I can give you a link to the place that sells the best sliders based on your answer. If you got any questions about the 2nd gen SV, I will be glad to help. I own one myself. If you ever are interested in doing the TRE mod, I am the guy on svrider that put the plans up for how to build the smart TRE, otherwise known as volengineer.

yeah motosliders are really nice unless you have to cut your fairings, the R&G sliders (I think justpucky has these) are just as good, but they allow you not to have to cut your fairing which looks really nice and is just as protective.

great info guys, thank you.
I dig how the farrings look, but I am viewing these sliders as "training wheels". Farrings are something that I will buy down the road when I have a couple of seasons under my belt. I know that stuff happens even to the most experienced, but I just want them for learning. After all, Im already complaining about how much the turn signals stick out, and how goofy they look!!
So I guess what ever ones are cheapest.

Don't settle for the cheapest sliders. Some companies make shi*ty sliders. unless you're talking about the cheapest lights. Do research to find out what the best brand of sliders are. Trip knows though. i'm sure he did the research.

And they aren't really training wheels. Your saving yourself some serious cash down the road if she goes down. Unless you just dont care.

If you plan on having a new bike before you buy fairings, get the motosliders. They are cheaper than R&G.

LOL,
I know they arnt training wheels, Im just saying they are a cheap assurance policy while I learn the bike. I plan on taking them off after a couple of seasions. Thats all I ment by it.

Good call on not going for the cheapest. I was just saying that out of the options that every one recommended, I was going to go for the cheaper of them.
