can someone please explain to this n00b what frame sliders are/do?
Frame sliders might protect something in a parking lot tipover, but I don't see how they can do any good at speed. My bike went down at somewhere between 40 and 50 mph and there were no scratches on the frame and no scratches on the engine. I'm pretty sure the controls would have received similar damage. Any ugliness on the frame or engine in this photo was caused by battery acid.A mechanic at my dealer, said that they were pretty useless for a monster, since there is no body work, and the frame is almostipossible to hit - the tank is too big. Will they help save the tank? Does not look that way too me.
