Searched and searched. We need a Frame Sliders Thread only. Please post pics of you sliders if you've got them, along with their name and how you like them.

For the purpose of science, I have crash tested the CycleCat Frame sliders pictured in the first post. They do good things. The bike would have still been QUITE ride-able had my right side of the bar point down towards the ground. And had I had a front brake lever left. Apparently frame sliders don't stop all damage, but it stopped a lot. It was a highside as well.

So yes, CycleCat has been crashtested. It worked.

Moto, liking your bike. What type of headlamp is that? What clip ons and triple do you have there?

Headlight is a HID lamp with a Harley bucket and billet mount. Cycle Cat Clip ons with shorter bars. Cycle Cat top triple. Motowheels bottom.

moto,

How did you get the gp masters to fit so close to the CC clip ons. If you could get some close up pics, it would be greatly appreciated.

So is the hid worth it or not? I would love more light
The light output is great. I went through all the different bulbs and HID kits. This headlight works the best. The headlight (~ $300) /bucket (~100) / billet mount (~100) was pricey though, so we did not come up with a kit.
I can get you the pieces if you are interested.

I used the shorter bars and took the locating pins off the controls.

There is still a little gap:



I don't have many close up shots of the bars, but if you email me at [email protected] I can take a few more pics and send them off to you.

I'm sure its the same with the rest of the Frame Sliders, but you can order individual replacement pucks (as I have had to do) for the Cycle Cat system. I mangled mine and a replacement wasn't too expensive at ~$38 bones from MotoWheels. Nice to be able to just add a replacement to your cart and check out, and be back on the road in no time.

Another benefit of CycleCat was the service. Turns out my kit was absent a set of bolts or something at the time :eek:, I don't remember now, but they were shipped right out to me as soon as I noticed and let them know. Box came complete with a TON of CycleCat after dinner mints. [clap]

I personally would love to have a CycleCat sticker or two rather than mints, but the mints were consumed during the install and that was pleasant. [thumbsup]

Good peoples.
