I had a look this morning. When the handlebar is at full lock left or right, the framesliders stick out by the same amount. Very nice.. this means that the fairing has a nice cushion... Now I wonder if the turn signals will bend enough or break off before they can damage the fairing attachment points...Nice, Q, do your frame sliders stick out past how much your handle bars do?
Nice. Where can I buy those? Do you have a part number for them?
Interesting. I've been weighing these vs the Yosh's myself. I had only really payed attention to the position where they were mounted... the Yosh's being higher up pokin out the cowl. I wonder which position protects more of the bike?I wouldn't want those on my machine, any real hit and they're going to cause more damage they they'd prevent. Sliders mounted precariously on levers like that are a bad plan. The Yosh's at least grab the frame in multiple spots.
Yep, these things have saved my S3 and 250 from tipover damage. I don't see them saving anything in a bad wreck (and yes, they may tweak the frame in these cases).When bikes crash.. they roll, tumble, spin end for end.. Ive never seen the value of these things on a street bike.
But these ones are so low the yoshi ones look way better at saving damage on falling off the stand etc.
If I were planning to race, I wouldn't put these on. The bike is going to crash and when it does, these things will probably render the bike useless after the frame gets bent. I'd just do what others do and buy a set of disposable 'race plastics' that you expect to sacrifice when the bike goes down (not if, when ).just installed them on my bike. fit perfect. hopefully i will not need them but atleast they are there. thanks for the pictures, it helped me out. and what a surprise 'aufit' is not in favor of these or any other modification of any kind whatsoever. lol. i like them, glad i got them.
