Got Yoshimura frame sliders for mine 06 gsxr 750 and they are great. No cut on right side, but must cut on left side.

I've experienced bad things with no-cuts. Get the cuts.

Well I would probabaly go with the no cuts. But on the other hand andthing is better than nothing. My buddie up his 06 down in a corner this weekend infront of me and well it slid pretty good. Damage could have been nothing if he had sliders. As it sits now without them hes lookin at a new side fairing, complete. Exhaust Lower fairing and brake pedal. Didnt get into the upper just a nick on the mirror and nothing on the tail. ....Well i think that was a very long and meaningless answer.

Sliders wont protect from all damage. They are designed to save the frame. Not body work and other external parts.

Once I get some pics of my old bike up after a wreck you'll see how nice the vortex held up.

Not that hard. My suggestion is too mount the base of the vortex and put your fairing back on. Then with your dremel drill a hole as close to the center of the base as possible. then slowly work your way to the outer edge of the base. Once it's nice and even around the base of the Vortex, install the puck. that's what i did on my '04.
