instead of sliding no cuts bend and puncture the things behind them, good luck selling them, i dont think there are many who would buy used no cuts, especialy here. but i would de replace them with cuts or at least take them off. a pc3 is for improved throttle response and a more efficeint air/fuel ratio it will help with any mods or no mods on the bike, but it will not turn your bike into some motogp racebike
bike looks nice tho

Looks great. The main benefit of cut sliders is that they utilize some of the strongest points/bolts on the frame, to save it when you crash. No cuts can work well too, not sure on the F4i, but general principle is that cuts will be able to do/save more.

Nice looking bike.

No-Cuts will ruin your life.

There. i hope i scared you. but it's true. now throw them away and get some proper cut sliders. which look much better anyways because you see much less of the slider.

That bike looks fantastic! Just don't crash, that way you don't need frame sliders and you don't have to cut up those beautiful fairings!

I know they're pretty lookin. but WHEN not IF you (or he) goes down, those pretty fairings are going to look far worse without proper sliders.

They are proven to protect fairings, hand levers, mirrors and casings far better than no-cuts or no sliders at all.

Im pretty sure with cut on no cut sliders during a 30mph crash or whatever those plastics are still going to get damanged, but not as damage as having no sliders at all.. If you happen to drop the bike at a stand still the sliders will save those fairings. I have cut sliders and they protected my bike during a drop no damange at all. Also you need an exhaust to completment your bike even more!

Fairings WILL BE DAMAGED in the event of a fall, even if you have frame sliders. The right side of my bike is proof enough of that statement. So please don't fall for the common assumption that frame sliders will make everything perfect in a fall.

well to add on to what aken said, he's sorta right about the fairings not being protected 100%, same thing happen to me when i crashed my bike going 45, but if it werent for the frame sliders the fairing would of been beyond repairable.

Thank you all. I didnt think i was going to get any response on here. The bike has had a tip over on stand still. I think i Will just get the cut sliders tho... idk these are sexy.!. ughh and yess the exhaust is next.. Im ballin on a budget and i am thinking about a GP carbon can from dan moto, or a delkivic slip on. I just dont want much noise though in a way i dont care,, and not to hyped about the cost of moto parts $$ anyway. What exhaust are recomended for around $150 even if its used just no rashes at all. I would rather have a generic muffler tht is so CHINY!! than a drill bit hanging on the side of me f4rri! thank you.
