Default Frame Sliders ??

Hey im kinda confused with these frame sliders. I am lookin for a set for my 02' F4i i dont really want to have to "modify my fairings" i take it that means cut the hell out of them. I don't know what im really looking for and was wondering if someone could steer me in the right direction so i know what to buy or look for. If someone could post a link for a set that would just bolt on that would be great thanks.

lordy ill be the first to give u the lecture... if ur gonna get sliders get the ones that you have to cut holes in your fairings or dont get any at all lol....

they make some called no cuts they are junk .. but what will end up happening if u use them is A they will do more damage than help... B u can trip the bolt right outa ur motor...

i used to give people the link to the only company that i know makes no cuts but i dont anymore because you will end up hurting urself or ur bike by using them

if u use the search button ull find a TON of posts about this topic... krux even addresses it in his sticky above...

if u dont wanna cut the fairings then dont get frame sliders u dont HAVE to have them,the bike runs perfectly fine without them
and no cuts, ummmmmm u might as well just not have sliders there are no no cuts for the f4i that work, for the gsxr's there r

haha well i guess the no cuts are pretty ****ty then from all the research ive done what is the best length or style for an f4i i have heard of two piece with the replacable derlin puck ? or the one piece ones ? what would you guys suggest that would give the most protection/reputable brand vortex or woodcraft i was thinkin. also when you go to cut it how do you go about? drill bit or hole saw ? or what ? thanks for the answers ahead of time
