+1 for T-rexx sliders. Very affordable

Made of high impact Delrin and they have a steel ring inside for added strength. Quality hardware.

You just have to pull off the stupid "t-rexx" stickers that are on the very end of the slider because they look,,, well,.... stupid.

i have vortex sliders..I like the 2 piece design.
I have also tested them and they held up beautifully and did what they were supposed to do

Vortex, Shogun, etc are the best. If on a extreme budget, t-rexxs n other similar ones will do fine. Just dont do no-cuts, they for looks only IMO.

You won't see the longer sliders on race bikes (which do tend to go down more often); they tend to grab the pavement and either break or make the bike flip. The Vortex and Woodcraft (my preference) are shorter and designed to actually slide. I like the Woodcraft because they are solid. Both are two piece design, easier to replace just the puck.

Agreed w/ what others have said already. I will say that ProTek Delrin sliders have proved to be a pretty decent alternative to the more expensive ones. My wife has these on her SV650. They aren't as expensive as the previously metioned but are good quality. Sorry, don't remember price.

Happy shopping. :-)

hey randy those look like they are aluminum sliders? aren't those infamous for grabbing and sending your bike into side flips? jc bc it looks by your pic that u race ur bike so i figured youd be able to provide a good answer
