Sliders

Quite a few advised installing sliders as one of first thing to do for a bike. This made sense, so i did it last weekend. The dealer recommended SpeedyMoto. i asked if these will protect the gas tank, which i like the most. He's not so sure. First time i've done this on any bike, and wonder if they were effective? I hope never having to find out how they actually perform.

i dropped my VTR-1000 once, while getting onto the rock pavement on the side of the road. Boom! The tank was messed up, but it's already a few years old so i did not feel as bad. Never got on any rock/sand on side of road again!!

I'm thinking that nothing will really protect the tank. The width to some degree, but mainly the position and construction of the handlebars. But, in a tip over or really slow crash, they seem to be worth it.

I purchased some protective bits, more with the idea of keeping the bike in running condition after a minor incident during a ride, rather than protection from all damage. The water pump and sprocket area seem particularly vulnerable, so I added protection there as well as the typical bumper on the frame.

I hope to never find out if they work.

I had a simple lay down and the sliders did the job. Even with the under fairing I had just a small scratch on the fairing..

Tchase: Glad it worked out for you!
Smilodon: CNC has some nice pieces that i may add next time.
P.S. Don't know about you. i'd like the bike a lot more now that i put more miles and getting used to it. Much better than the 1100evo IMHO

None will protect the tank to be honest. The tank is liable to be damaged by the handlebars in a crash so your best bet is to fit racing stop locks as well.
