Frame sliders
« on: September 04, 2019, 12:11:06 AM »
Anyone using frame sliders such as R+G instead of engine crash bars/tank crash bars? I know the sliders will protect the casing and are cheaper than engine bars, but what level of protection could one expect?
I'm anticipating maybe a low speed off or car park tumble as a result of losing footing.

Some of the CB500F riders are using them, try that section of the forum.

Sliders are great until they hit something like a curb. Then they stop sliding and you risk bending things.

Good point I never thought of that. I may get some H+B engine bars and fit some plastic skid blocks to them, similar to the Givi set up.

They're certainly a lot lighter and cheaper than full bars.  Do you reckon they'd protect the rear brake and gear pedals in the event of a drop?

A Drop Drop or Crash Drop?
Nothing will work for every situation.
You never know what the outcome will be.
Just pray you don't get "F" up for life.

P.S. Crash bars are for hard core off road, in the woods,
