i decided to go with woodcraft sliders...after i dumped my bike over today and scuffed the left side fairing and broke the ball off the clutch lever. (i'm a newb...k8 600 for first bike---please do not flame..i realize i need to get a smaller bike to learn on and i am signed up in the cancellation spot for msf course as soon as a spot opens)

so my questions

1) how easy is it to cut the fairing?

2) what do you use to cut the fairing

3) what is the torque measurement for tightening down the mount bolts?

Cutting the fairings is easy and they should come with full instructions. I cut my fairing with a drill and the proper sized cutting bit, took about a half hour to install and most of that as time going slow and drinking a beer.

No they don't, and that's for a reason.
Correct sir, Woodcraft is a track/race parts company and no-cut sliders on a track bike :laughingr. I'll sell my bikes before putting on no-cut sliders. Sure they save time and effort before your crash but wait until after :laughingr and we're not talking some wussy tip over in the driveway.

i have some no cut sliders, however if i happen to go down faster than 45, theres more shit than jest a fairing gonna get messed up, depends on how things hit and what hits a friend of mine hit a curb in a parking lot and it totaled his bike just because the frame got scratched towards the rear of the bike, another on went down and scratched his frame below the seat, (with sliders) and totaled that bike as well
