Guys and gals, once again I am in need of advice, I want to get some frame sliders to lessen the damage if (when?) I go down. It seems there are a gazillion different types out there, so I'm wondering if you have any recommendations. I plan on going to the cycle shop this coming week to order them. I own a '01 gsxr600. Thanks!

Page 101, Lockhart Phillips catalog. Vortex frame sliders. You'll also see my picture there on my racebike. Like yours, it's a 2001 gsxr600. As an LP privateer, I get them at cost. (800) 221-7291. Call them for pricing. Don't have the catalog? Any bike dealer near you will.

Welcome to the board.

Did you guys have to cut holes in the fairings to install the sliders? I keep getting told that I'll have to, but then found a set online that mentioned no holes would have to be cut.

I had to cut a semi-circle on the left. I believe there's a set of sliders that has an offset base. Probably more expensive, but if you have street bodywork, it's worth it. You may have found them.

i got the ones you have to cut a small area in the left side fairing, the other side bolts right up. the other kind uses an aluminum bracket that bolts up and then the slider attaches to the bracket. ive heard stories on the gixxer board that the bracket can bend upon impact. the hole in the fairing is not noticeable at all becuase the slider fills up the space if you cut it right.
