eBay. Were i got my frame sliders, swingarm sliders, bar ends and other stuff. all matching. And the purpose of a frame slider is to protect the fairings in a low mph lowside or a drop.

Which ones should i get? Why do they range so much in price? Are they easy to install?

Some like mine are two pieces. You got the anchor then you have the puck. In the event of a drop, only the $20 pucks would break and are replaceable. The anchors stay put and that is it. Name brand makes a difference too.

believe it or not the frame sliders are only meant to protect your frame, hence the name. they can, however, occasionally save your plastics from turning into a giant collage of puzzle pieces.
for the f3, you can almost always expect fairing damage from the drop because of the location of the sliders.
my sliders didn't save my plastics at all at a low speed drop, instead, it kept my frame from getting scratched and making my title a salvage.

just my .2
