Default Cool New Sliders/Added Riding Security I Found On Ebay

Just thought ide hit you guys with a heads up with a cool new item i found... These sliders would fix alot of problems with people being worried about sliders as well as being worried about people in front of them not being able to see their turn signals

Just trying to keep you guys up to date/ give people more options

Cool idea, but if those are like my sliders (Woodcraft) they only stick out 1 1/4" to 1 1/2". not much room to see lights in my opinion, especially for how far back on the body of the bike they sit. I stood back and really dont see the sliders much from a distance. Just my 2 cents though.

these stick out farther...woodcrafts are stubby sliders meant for racing... these are 3" long sliders themselves not including the mount... so they probably stick out a good 2.5 inches....

im getting a pair and using them in a custom application

I was looking at those LED sliders; I'm not convinced of the longevity of cheap ebay LEDs (I'll know more in a few months since that hasn't stopped me from buying a crapload of them), but I was considering getting those sliders and replacing the lights with my own. Of course, then it would probably make more sense to just buy their plain sliders for ten bucks and install my own lights from scratch . . .

At any rate, there's no shortage of neat motorcycle stuff coming out of Hong Kong these days, and sometimes the quality is surprisingly good. We need more people to take on for the team and order some of these gadgets for review.

AWWW SWEET some 3M double sided and for extra strength I put on some crazy glue, put them right on the fairings, cuz we all know thats what they are supposed to protect.
