  • Frame Sliders - I need pics....

    Ok, so after my recent stunt and entertaining the crowds of Copenhagen, I've decided on using frame sliders. I have a strong feeling against paying 150$ for 2 sliders, as they are basically two lumps of nylon/aluminum bolted on to the frame/engine. I'm thinking of having my dad do some in titanium/aluminum on his CNC machinery in his shop, however - I NEED PICTURES! The areas of interest is the exact place for the bolting on to the frame or engine (I'm not interested in having to modify the fairing if at all possible not to) as well as length. Furthermore - are they bolted on using existing holes in the frame/engine, or...?

    Thanks guys!
    Erhm...Spring? That's in January, right..?

                Solid metal (Alu or Ti) is prolly not so god ideß.
                If the unflexible framslider is bolted on to hard on the frame, and you drop it again, you might harm the frame.


                Try to have your dad to make them in Nylon instead.
                Easier, cheaper and prolly better too.

                Oh, the factor is higher on the alu tho...

                  Hmm...thanks all, especially the thoughts on making them flexible - i.e. the base being of some flexible material, while the end cab is of something a bit more solid, sounds rather reasonable

                  Anyway; I don't think I can get the old man (old-school blacksmith - everything not "weld-able" doesn't last long ! ) to make these - but I sure do like the look of these lockhart phillips'...I'll have a look!

                    What is it with this frame slider thing?

                    It pissus me off just like 'Suspension setting' threads. I believe there are 2 frameslider groups. Those who believe in them and those who don't. I'm a member of the latter.

                    What is a frame slider supposed to do? Protect your bike when you come off? Well, i've seen pics of wrecked bikes all over the internet for years now where frame sliders did'nt protect anything even during slow speed off's.

                    This is my take - Frame sliders act like sprokets on the suface - they dig in and flip the bike, making it cartwheel. When a bike cartwheels it's a write off 9 times outta 10. Things get bent badly. Nope, I'd rather let it slide, fix the rash & broken levers other than write off my bike.

                    I think they're only good for when you drop the bike off the sidestand when standing still, or something stupid like that. As soon as you get moving they are potentially terminal.

                    Flame suit on.

                      So Pierre, what suspension settings do you think would be best for me on my TLS?

                        I thought the longer and metal ones would make it flip but you wanted the shorter delrin ones to protect the frame radiator and such but not the plastics
                        War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

                          I've seen a few a bikes that suffered from a 20MPH-40MPH low side and frame sliders did an excellent job of protecting the frame. Of coarse the plastic is trashed but heck what do you expect. Like kwikryder I also got a set of MotoStyle no-cut sliders and feel the brackets are very strong and could easily handle a get off without bending like some of the other no-cut models out there.

                            They are frame sliders, they're to protect your frame, not the plastic really.

                              Im in the same camp as Pierre.

                              Sure, they do the job if your bike stay on the tarmac, but once on the grass. it flips. Flipping isnt good.

                              Buuut, I know most people don┤t agree. Whatever...
