Engine Case Sliders-Who Has Them?

I looked everywhere on the site and I didn't find too much stuff on case sliders. I really want to get a set but there aren't to many options out there. Anyone have suggestions for brands or Ebay parts?

I have been looking at the T-REX ones but they are a little pricey so I was also looking at these: Racing Engine Stator Clutch Cover Frame Slider for Honda CBR250R 2010 2012 | eBay
I am just a little worried about their design and if it would just rip of in case of a crash.

hmm, for the price it isn't too much of a loss, even if they don't fit absolutely perfect, the idea is to minimize the damage if you go down, and a little modification if they are 100% lined up, still worth it as opposed to a new case cover. just my thoughts

If you are scared then don't get on the bike because you won't enjoy riding with fear as your passenger...

Well the whole point of them for me is when I go to the track. If I go down one of the last things I want is to spill oil on the track and ruins everyone else's day. I am really looking for someone who has one of the cheap ebay ones and can attest to the quality. And being a college student I want to make sure I don't spend anything more than I need

Kudos for actually needing functional case sliders for racing vs. just putting bling on the bike for no good reason.

I should mention that I've seen two street CBRs the went down on the right side and there was no case damage. I think the exhaust systems (one aftermarket, one stock) protected the engine.

Wondering what others have seen with bikes that went down on the left side...

I have some pretty long Frame-Sliders on mine, and I agree with Stichill, on the right side with good frame sliders and the exhaust there would probably be no case damage, not sure about the left side though. It's raining out now, but when it is dry out I'll pull my bike out and a fire blanket and lay it down on each side to see how much clearance there is between the case covers and the asphalt. I like the idea of the case cover sliders though. I may get a set, my girl mainly rides this thing, and she hasn't been down yet but sooner or later ya know!

I don't like the extra long bolts on the ebay covers. It looks to me like there is high chance of stripping the engine mount if you go down hard and those bolts get snagged/torqued. (I have no experience with any sliders on my CBR250, but that happened to me on my CBR600 with case covers on a relatively gentle/slow low-side crash. At that point, I would have rather slid on the OEM stator cover and just replaced it.) Just my $0.02.

If you already concerned about the design of it, why wouldn't you go ahead & spend a little more for a design you could feel confident in?

Like I said before in this post. I don't care that much about a low side on the road. I am worried about going to the track. If I low side and break a case cover and dump oil on the track im going to ruin everyone else's track day.

Well being a college student means I have to be pretty stingy will my money. If I am able to buy a cheaper set that give the same protection then I will go with that. But im still leaning toward the T-REX slider just because I trust that design more.
