OK, So I had my first crash. No big deal--- just minor damage (like a bent handle bar and shifter, and a broken foot peg). I didn't have a spare foot peg,so I borrowed one from a CBR 600. The fit wasn't perfect, but at least it allowed me to ride for another 2 days.

I had the bike fitted with R & G frame sliders and the left took a beating. Afterwards, I checked for cracks around the mounts, but I couldn't find any. Also, the bike stayed on the left side during the slide and the speed was around 55-60 mph. All I can say is the slider did its job this time- next time, who knows?

sorry to hear about you falling off, m8t.

That frame slider still has plenty of life left in it! :happy:
Is the mounting point for the slider where the radiator bolts up to?

I still haven't put mine on. 'Not thrilled about the mounting location options.
