Those are garbage. I haven't had any personal experience, but I had a buddy go down on an R6 with those...wasn't much left, and offered minimal protection. Once you pop the top cap off, that carbon just disengrates.
Eric,I've seen sliders by the rear sets on some honda and yamaha bikes in addition to the frame sliders. anyone seen this on ducati yet?
and an additional note- I just put the speedy moto under body sliders on my 2012 848evo today and It didn't need a smaller battery as the instructions stated. I don't know if ducati moved the battery or speedy moto doesn't proff their intructions.
