so ive been looking to buy a set of some frame sliders for my bike as my first upgrade, motosliders seem to be impossible to get a hold of as they selll out right away. i saw this video on sportbiketrackgear (video review at bottom) http://stores.sportbiketrackgear.com/Detail.bok?no=5096
anyways ive noticed on the pictures of motosliders that ive seen that they seem to stick out pretty far from the bike and hear that this can be a bad thing cuz they can catch easier and cause the bike to flip in the case of a crash. Also the fact that they are hollow in the middle. Dont get me wrong im not dissing motosliders at all because all ive heard on this site are great reviews and that people are very happy with them. But with them out of stock and these woodcraft sliders for the same price i was wondering what people have to say about them.

i like the idea of the low profile slider with the flat end but like i say, i dont have much knowledge on the topic. The video review gave me some ideas on trying them out.

They need to stick out or they won't protect your bike. If it is going fast enough to flip I don't think the motoslider would be the ulitimate cause.

I haven't heard a single person complaining about motosliders whether in person or on the net.
Buddy of mine had woodcrafts on his sv1000s. It broke off after minor lowside. I think a lot of it has to do with mounting point. My suzuki sliders mounted the same, same story.
Both of us got Motosliders. Haven't tested them yet.

Motosliders will be back in stock very soon you can order them here
www.10bomb.com

As far as the claim of flipping, that would have to be a case by case examination as to why the bike flipped. Nate can explain better the I could but, motosliders have a little give to them. This would help in preventing frame damage from a to ridged of a frame slider.

Wow, like there aren't 10000 threads on this forum praising motosliders. Also, shorter frame sliders must be far more effective at keeping your tank, frame, and bodywork off the ground.

Wait...most recent thread about sliders? Second page...and you posted in it. Also including 3 sources to purchase them...

I think they are. Look like they could go in that smaller bolt forward of the engine mount bolt.

The Woodcrafts made the same mistake many manufacturers did with the SVs. They failed to take advantage of the stronger mounting point. They just emulated the slider mount points used on I4 bikes. But, the SV has the single 12mm bolt available in a better, stronger location. Woodcraft uses the 2 10 mm bolts. That means our 12mm bolt is 40% stronger. (Do the math on cross-sectional area)

So, we can use a longer slider. And, it is made of a soft enough plastic that it will bend if it hits something HARD to help keep the bike from flipping.

I just picked up the full fairing motosliders for second generation. I was thus going to remove the original motosliders and sell (no damage, never down). If these are what you are looking for, send me a PM.

They may be in stock, but they are over priced. Motosliders and 10bomb sell them for less and I think shipping is less too. Worth waoting for

Over priced or just a bit more expensive? There is a HUGE difference between the two, and I think you are using it incorrectly.

What's a few dollars' difference when you can have proven protection quicker?

Not only am I the president of the Motosliders Glee club, but I'm also a client that has proven that gravity works with his Motoslider-mounted SV. ASCSurveyor is our Prime Minister and Jeopardy is our ambassador to the UN.
