Bike sliders/Protection

Hello,

I just bought my first bike a couple months back. I am getting it ready for next season and did not know direction to go towards.

First off, for the winter, I will be putting it on pitbull stands and winterizing it. I will be buying a hybrid dual lift stand from pitbull, a spooled forward handle rear stand, and 8mm delrin spools for the bike.I will use the stands for the winter with the delrin spools but these are just for storage. I was not planning on using them for actually riding.

While it is sitting for the winter, I also wanted to put protection on it for next season. I was interested in getting shogun frame sliders. Then, I was on another site and I was reading some stuff on full protection kits and realized that shogun also makes a full protection kit, well what they call a protection kit. This includes bar ends, frame sliders, and swingarm spools. The full protection kit is a no cut kit though so it would have adapters for the frame sliders. I have heard the cut kits are more durable if anything ever happens. I have seen that there are also front axle sliders.

I do not know what all I need for protection. Should I go with just frame sliders or should I get the protection kit or should I get the protection kit and also front axle sliders? Do I need anything else for protection of the bike or would anyone recommend a different company or direction to take this in?


This is the link for the protection kit I was thinking about:

This is the link for the front axle sliders:
http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/s...t-axle-sliders

This is the link for the frame sliders:
http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/s...-750-2006-2007


I have a 2007 gsxr 600.

Thanks for the help.

Haha, no, I just haven't figured out this site yet. I don't have a very decent camera to take pictures unless I go through the process of doing this on my phone.

Also, I assume I posted this in the correct section but if not, feel free to move it.

Just like the main question in the original post. Which pieces should I run for full protection or what would you all recommend for needed protection

Frame sliders, spools, OEM bar ends. That would be enough. Most aftermarket bar ends are lighter, so you'll feel a ton more vibration in your hands. The OEM's are heavier and help dampen that vibration. Cut type sliders hold up much better in a slide than the no-cuts, which have actually caused more damage than they have prevented.

I wouldn't spend $152 on Shogun. They're a good product, but Woodcraft is better and is the same price if you piece the same parts together. $150 by my count. One added benefit of the Woodcrafts is IF you use the sliders, you can just get replacement pucks, not a whole new kit.

If you wanted more, grab their case covers. Or the Yoshi case savers.

So you wouldn't recommend the front or rear axle slider kits at all? Woodcraft also makes them for the bike but if I do not need them I will skip them all together.

By OEM bar ends, do you mean order the Factory ones or do you mean they came on the bike and I shouldn't worry about getting anything?

The case covers do look nice that woodcraft makes. They are quite expensive but I assume they would be worth it though. Maybe I will go with the sliders for the time being and work up to the case covers.

Thanks for the info. I am on the woodcraft site right now. I grabbed a few links off of it.

I mean the OEM sliders that came on your bike when it was brand new. You can find them fairly cheap, or free if you're searching the right places. Woodcraft does have weighted bar ends, and they are on my shopping list, I do not know how heavy they are compared to stock.

I have to look around, but I may have my old OEM's and a pair of aftermarkets in a box some where. If I can find them, you're more than welcome to them.

I'm sure the axle sliders would help, but of all the crashes I've seen either on here or first hand, I can't recall one person saying, "I wish I had axle sliders". But, I'm sure they would help. So that's your call if you want to get them or not.

It looks like they are 4.5 ounces each.

Thanks for the info and the offer for your old ones. If you do find them, let me know. Thanks for all of the help on the other stuff though.

Bry is right about the Woodcrafts, top notch stuff. I have the frame sliders, barend sliders, front and rear axle sliders and left and right engine case guards. I have some close up pics in my profile if you want to check them out. I have yet to test this stuff out and hope I never do . But as for quality and customer service, they are one of the best companies out there. Good luck man.

I went ahead and got the woodcrafts. I will probably eventually get the engine case guards if I can find someone who doesn't need them anymore or I get a deal on them. They are a little expensive for the time being. Thanks for the help from everyone.

For future reference thr woodcraft case savers are the best. With their replaceable skid pads vs other brands one time use....its a no brainer.
