Frame sliders for an r6 - May 26, 2010, 08:22 PM

I have an r6, what type of frame sliders would you recommend, is this something I should have a shop install for me or a quick DIY?
sorry if this has been asked before, but I searched and found nothing...

For the most part this is a DIY type thing. Depending on the year of the bike and the frame sliders. The biggest issue you will run into will be wether or not you have to drill a hole through your plastics. They do have no cut frame sliders that go around the plastics though so that is an option also. I put mine on my R6 in about 30 minutes....most of which was spent trying to figure out how to get the fairing off on the right side.

Quick search and you should have options out the wazoo.

I use shogun. I've tested them twice, and they work great.

I have no cut. I like them.

definitely do it yourself. only do one at a time though, dont drop the engine

yoyodyne! http://www.yoyodyneti.com/Category.aspx?CategoryID=2944 Sliders with replaceable ends. Best part is the ends can be converted to ties down points for trailering!

Which ones better cutted or no cut ones? or do they offer equal protection?
I see that the price varies is that just brand wise or are the expensive ones the best?

no-cuts are great for parking lot drops, but there are stories of them snapping off when crashing at speed. my vote goes for woodcraft.

These things are expensive as hell! Would I be taking a risk buying 30 dollar ones?

I've used them before...no issues with them. I prefer no-cut because they are easy to remove if you crash. The direct bolt on ones can be a bitch to remove, and I've seen them damage the frame on more than one occasion. The no-cuts will break off before damaging the frame.

When you say "break off" do you mean shred off?

He means break off.

Frame sliders that go into the frame (and generally require a cut on many bikes) will not shred off, say like a swing arm spool for a stand. If they do by the time the friction shredded the slider to the bolt your bike would be toast anyway.

On the track I have 3 sliders on an R6, mainly to protect the bike frame/have it survive to the next race or session. Plastic is irrelevant or replaced.
Engine cases on R6 were notoriously weak and require protection or replacement if you are racing them - on the street who gives a shit b/c if you went down just be happy you are alive.

I (personally) do not cut stock plastic on bikes. I have frame sliders on bikes that do not require cutting, bike that require cutting do not get them for a street bike. If they do not go into the frame i do not get the point, they are "plastic protectors kindof" not frame sliders and just really serve no purpose to protect for any significant damage.

I have the shogun frame sliders....not the clearest instructions but not impossible to figure out. It is pretty much a matter of taking off your plastics( Allen wrench and your good). I have an 07 r6, the only tricky part was poping the one plastic tab about half way up the plastisol on the clutch side.
