View Full Version : Suzuki validates need for axle sliders

09-09-2006, 07:52 PM
I have seen discussions here and on other online communities about the need for axle sliders. I've never doubted it personally, but some questioned the usefulness of axle sliders. I was at a local dealer yesterday and they showed me an '07 DRZ400SM, and they come with axle sliders from the factory now. Suzuki has a lot more people doing product development than I do and they don't put parts on their bikes just to see how high they can crank up the MSRP. So when I see them making those standard equipment, it tells me that there is a real need. It's nice to have one of the big 4 agree with you.

I noticed AF1 is selling your rear axle sliders for the SXV . Any available for the forks?

One of the first mods I did on VOR was axle sliders. Any MX style bike that travels on the road should have them, IMHO.

They are scheduled to be out of the shop by the end of next week. AF1 already has an order in with me for a bunch of them.
