Frame Sliders / Swingarm Spools - June 6, 2008, 11:01 AM

Ok Kawi Experts,

Im looking to get some frame sliders and swingarm spools on my '08 ZX-6R. I want to go no-cut for the frame sliders. Anyone have a suggestion on online retailers and/or good brands?

Is there anything in specific to avoid with sliders/spools, or is one pretty much the same as another?

Danke

Check what's discussed on zxforums.com and zx-10r.net. I have no-cut sliders by Champs on my 10r. These are solid. I don't know what they offer for the 6r. Just google Champs sliders and see. If they offer something, I'd go with Champs if I were you.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

Maybe they have changed quite a bit lately, but my experience has proven that the no-cuts do NOT have the same level of protection as the kind that bolt directly to the engine mount and come through the plastic if needed. No-cuts typically bolt up then snake around plastic with a bend that, well....bends when you don't want it to, offering little protection.

Just my .02

Champs do not suffer from this problem on Kawis. Photos are on the their webby, if you're curious to see. Someone else has a nice set (not champs), and I'm trying to think... Oh, it's Stone. Anyone know Stone's username on here? Is it "Stone" or something else? Anyway, those are basically the same design, but the finish is a bit more elegant than Champs.
