Hello all,

Just bought my first bike today - a yellow 2005 naked SV650.

It doesn't have frame sliders. I know I need to get them, but that's all I know.

What do I need to get? seems like at least two pairs one for front and one for back what about in between?

Is there any difference between brands?
Is this something I can install myself?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Moto Sliders. They are the only thing I would trust my SV with and unfortunately/fortunately I have tested them out.

Yes, you can install them yourself as long as your mechanically inclined.

you really only need the main frame sliders. you can do swingarm and fork sliders if you really feel like it.

I have motosliders. they are the only design i know of with a through bolt design that replaces one of the factory motor mount bolts

it takes about 10 mins to do as long as you have 2 socket wrenches and 2 deep 19mm (i think) sockets.

The motosliders swingarm sliders saved a friend's chain and sprocket a few weeks ago. They're definitely worth throwing on too especially if you're going to be using a rear stand at all (built-in swingarm spools for the stand).

Panth has a good point. The best thing about the swingarm sliders aside from being necessary for a rear stand is they're cheap. I bought mine on ebay for $10 or so.

Very cheap insurance. And they're actually useful for maintenance!

dont get me wrong, I have swingarm sliders too. I was just saying that you need at least frame sliders. swing arm and fork sliders can be done separately if desired.
