Sliders, Levers, Mirrors to replace on a Honda600RR '07 after sliding

1) I want sliders so recommend them please....the best that will last through several crashes...i heard things about some POS's cuz they dont really do anything for high speed crashes and others have said things about some that are awesome cuz they bolt to ur frame or something...teach me? lol
2) When I did my most recent slide (didnt see that ice pocket on the road...was going too fast anyway to see it around that curve) I cracked/ripped off one of my mirror heads, but the stem is still function and undamaged on the bike...what can u recommend for my as far as a cheap replacement..anything that might be cheaper than a stock replacement
3) I was sliding so fast and the initial impact with the pavement bent my left (clutch...if that helps any better) lever so now it looks like a big 'U' and i cant get my hand on it firmly to pull to shift...is there any way i can just get that piece to replace?
4) I am also looking for a nice undertail fendor eliminator...my exhaust is going to stay there, just maybe get moved up or down some cm's or in's but that ugly license plate has to go...price is not a problem on this one...please help me on this one...

if anything where can i go to look for some of these parts cuz rider gear is a POS imo because its all mumbo-jumbo'd to where i cant even sort to what my bike model is...

on the good side! no road rash or broken bones..just a couple bruises and one lil piece of skin on my knew gone where i guess my gear shifted or something so that lil inch of skin is gone but nothing else....gear works! woo! lol

i am in VA so i will have to ship anything u suggest to me so lets hope its in the USA or shippable to me..

tks guys u rock!

p.s. i still havent posted pics because i realized a while back that i had sold my camera a long time ago so its gonna be a while before i can post some pics unless i find someone with pics..

y dont you try sum race rails if your into the twisties but if you into the stunting then get a stunt cage their a bunch of companys out their with some good products but for frame sliders i heard the Vortex one's are the best little pricey but i went with race rails cause they dont restrict your lean

4Hotbodies or Competition Werks! But if its just re mounting the plate you can make it yourself!!

race rails are the only real thing that will prevent most damage when you go down, but no matter what you get you will most likely get some damage unless it's just a drop. That's just the nature of the game, keep the rubber side down.

As far as sliders for the 07 600rr, there is nothing really out there that really impresses me. Rails are about the best you can get for it, the rest of the sliders to me just don't look very effective for this bike. I bought some no cuts that will only protect in the event of a drop. I don't think they will far well in a crash, but there was nothing else on the market that looked any better.

My fault, I was out of bounds with that comment! It just seems crazy to me to buy a brand new bike prior to having a few years, but if you have the money spend it, and the skill use it!! Thats why I deleted it, because thats a personal oppinion and I didnt mean to be bashing!

nah, u didnt insult me...i expect it cuz it is a big step from a 250cc(the bike i learned on at the msf) and the 250cc i learned on was a v-twin so the power ban was diff...trust me i did my research and took my precautions....i take every turn easy until i feel comfortable on it..then when i get comfortable on it i take it easy for another couple go rounds...then i start tip-toe'n into the forbidden 1/8inch chicken strip area lol..unfortunately unless its 2am in the morning in a lowe's or home depot parking lot..i never get even close to the 1/8inch line on my strips...ive more than done my fair share of 1/4-1/2 sections but not enough to fully wear it down to middle-of-tire wear so it still looks like ive never touched it...

so anyone got a link to their version of race rails they use?

I meant mostly parts wise but this is your first bike correct? You're still very green, but seems you are trying to go slow n learn. What you have posted is exactly why most here recommend a older used bike to learn on. No harm or fail tho.

twice...the first one was slowing down/sitting stopped at a stoplight when it was raining....someone decided to try to make me a hood ornament by attempting to ram me(he had slammed on his brakes cuz he was looking down and was sliding) into the car in front of me's caboose...i dumped my bike and jumped to the right of the car in front of me cuz if i had drove up to teh left of the car in front of me i would have been in oncoming traffic and there was a giant brick wall to the right of him with no room to drive in between but me myself cud fit easily...so i basically had no choice but to jump outa the way lol...

Sliders will pay for themselves in the end, good money spent regardless of all the whiners who dont wont to cut their fairings for em. I gladly cut a hole n install $70+ sliders to save $300 per side.

And yes a rear fender on a sportbike is VERY fugly.

i found a pair of racing sliders that is apparently a bar u mount to the frame through holes in the fairing that reaches all the way across the fairing..kinda like connectiong the dots...i wonder if an engine cage is worth the hassle too...does that do the same thing as sliders cept for the engine instead of the cosmetics on the outside?

This is where your knowledge of the bike is flawed, cutting the street plastics for the cut sliders leaves the fairing with very little structural support, so you can either take a chance with no cuts or more than likely ruin your street plastics by cutting.

would have to see a pic. A stunt 'cage' will decrease your lean angle, hence killing ya performance in the twisties. These race rails that have be debated on here I have yet to see on a race bike, but wouldnt affect lean angles and as long as the slider puck is derlin should work as well. But neither are a no cut solution that I seen.

you have to be talking about the 07's the lil 1 3/4" hole in mine didnt affect its structural integrity at all. What sliders I seen on the newer models only have like a half moon cut out of it, if that. But you're right, I dont have actual experience with the newer models. But I do know a slider bolted to a bracket, bolted to the frame isnt as good.
