Default Good Frame Sliders

Looking for some good frame sliders. I was told nocut ones don't work well. But I am still new to bikes. What is the difference? And why will one work, but not the other?

I heard the same thing...i think its because the sliders that need cutting are mounted to a stronger part of the frame but dont quote me. Overall the cut looks easy, just a circle (use a hole saw).

Edit: look at last post on page 2

So what are some good sliders? My fairing is already cracked on both sides because it was bought used. So I don't think I even need to cut anything.

The cut sliders from TREX are easy to install if you use the playdoh method. It just requires a drill, a circular bit from HD / Lowes (about $15) and some masking tape. I've done it a couple times on my F4i. They also look good (IMO) especially if you trim up the hole with a little audo door molding (about $7).

Don't try to eyeball it, though, or use the laser pointer method: That makes it much tougher in my experience.
