Frame Sliders
« on: May 18, 2019, 12:55:25 AM »
Hi, I currently have my bike (2016) in the workshop after a stationary drop that snapped off both the clutch lever and foot peg.
I want to add frame sliders to the bike that I hope may lessen the damage in case of future stuff ups. Can anyone recommend some that they have fitted to their bike?
Cheers

I did the same to my Cr, fortunately I had fitted a set of Givi engine guards the week before which prevented any further damage.

Thurn Motorsports also do so crash protection which I have fitted to my VFR1200F. The link is to their VFR800F list, the engine is the same so they should fit. You could always contact Gerhard Thurn, he's a very nice chap.
1 VFR simply isnt enough! Crossrunner for commuting, VFR1200F for summer fun.

Dont know the answer  to the cost but I bought one to cover the minor scratches on my can following a 0 speed drop, think it scratched more as I failed in attempts to lift the bike alone :006:

I have evotech frame sliders fitted, dropped the bike stationary on the right side , only damage was a bent brake pedal and scratches on the slider. Brake pedal straightened out by the way.
