Hey everyone,
Just bought myself my first SV650. 2005, blue with only 2000 km's on it.

Ordered the fairings for her already and just trying to decide on frame sliders now.
I've been told the OEM ones from suzuki will bend and not work in a crash, so I was wondering what would be the best brand to buy that would be compatible with my fairings! I don't want to do any cutting or anything.

Thanks in advance!

the link takes me to his ebay store where the sliders I need aren't listed. Does he have a handle on here?

On the site it says they work with the 650 with the OEM lowers. What about a 1000? I figure there is not much difference but figured I woudl ask
I suspect if they were to fit the 1000 then it would say so? Only real way to find out is to contact nate at motosliders.

The motosliders do NOT work with a SV1K with OEM lowers. Nate said they don't plan to offer a set either.

Guess I will have to go another route...

We really need to get a mod to put up a big phucking sticky titled,


"All you phucking need to know about frame sliders right here. Stop creating new gawdam posts every other fracking day! Read here first or have your testicles flayed!"


I'm just saying.

Actually, NO they haven't. There aren't but a handfull on OEM lower faired bikes right now. I know the new design has been changed but have a look at Mavryk's destroyed prototype. The OEM's would have done better.

I guess I'll be the first to recommend the long proven R&G Frame Sliders available at www.ema-usa.com. Worked flawlessly for me when my fully faired SV and I hit the pavement hard at 50+ mph. Slider left a 60' skid mark and never budged.

I'd consider sipping the Motoslider kool-aid for faired bikes only after I see some crash experience. For non-faired, it's a go.
