I've heard good and bad things about no cut frame sliders. I hear they're good for just drops in the garage and in parking lots, but crap when your up to speed on the road and cause more harm than good. Just wondering if they are worth it and if they are, what brands should I stick to for my '08 sv650s. Thanks

Only good for drops in parking lots? GTFOH. More harm than good when you're up to speed? Absolutely not. That's why they're called frame sliders, they slide on the asphalt so your plastics & other vulnerable components don't take the brunt of the damage.

Wherever you heard this barracks lawyer half witted advice don't ever go there again.

Just browse the forum about others who have either low speed dropped or had a lowside and they'll always say how they wish they had frame sliders. a lot of expensive unnecessary damage could have been prevented with some ~$130 motosliders.

I have R&G sliders, a bit more expensive but motosliders was taking too long at the time for frame sliders for S model 2nd gens.

Depends on the brand you get. The OEM Suzuke no-cut sliders are crap, and may do more harm than good.

The no-cut Motosliders and R&G sliders are better.

Very true; the OEM sliders fit on the end of a levered steel bracket, which is prone to cracking. Add sliding forces for a higher speed drop, and the frame likes to crack too. Solving this was the motive behind the sliders from R&G and Motosliders.

I have the Motosliders set and am fantastically pleased with them. +1

I have motorsliders but haven't tested them. Be prepared for this thread to blow up.

You should get a set of these and be glad you have them when you do go down.

i have also been considering frame sliders. but i was a little hesitant because i have heard that going down at speed can harm the frame. I have looked at the motosliders and have heard nothing but good things. But im also a college student with little money so I started looking on ebay and found these. They seem similar to the design of the motosliders. any thoughts???

Those look pretty good to me. I would go for it, Motosliders are really good, but not sacred...

I have the Woodcraft silders. They work great. At last years track day I low sided it in a hairpin and ended up with only bent handlebars. And everyone knows if you bend your handlebars you need an GSXR front end swap.

I think so

I think zach is trying to make a point that the SV-S style motosliders have not been tested as much as the nakeds
yes, nocut means they can be used with the factory lower fairings and utilize the hole already in them.

the ONLY motoslider nocut set (the prototype) that has been crash tested so far fell apart upon impact.
