Default SV Racing frame sliders

About a month ago it was dark and I was on my Buell, and put the kickstand down and got off. The only problem was the kickstand didn't stay down. Had to order up a new hand guard and blinker after the drop. So I started looking at my unprotected wee-strom and figured I better get something. I ordered the frame slider from sv racing parts late Sunday. Blair, the owner emailed right back and suggested the swing arm sliders also and why. I agreed and ask him to invoice me. He did immediately and emailed back the confirmation on Sunday evening. By Wednesday at lunch the order was sitting by my door. Man, I got to give a shout-out to this dude Blair. All of his parts went on like butter. Quick and easy. I wish everyone ran their business like this guy. Big Props to this Brother.

Unless you take off the passenger pegs, swingarm sliders probably will never touch the ground in a simple low side. They are more commonly used for sport bikes with high or missing passenger pegs. In a violent crash where the bike is really tossed around, they can save the swingarm end but the bike will probably be totaled.

@Greywolf, Thanks man, I never ride 2-up so I'll remove those rear pegs. After going out to the garage an eye-balling it, its pretty obvious. So it looks like you would get the better protection from the sliders than the foot pegs. Is that your opinion?

Taking off the footpeg mounts will get the sliders into the main protection position and reduce weight. It will also keep the footpeg mounts from being damaged in a fall. I keep mine for another place to put my feet on long rides. It's an individual decision.

Thanks Buddy, I think I'll take them off and put them back on if and when I ever need them which will probobly be never. Less weight is always a good thing.

I forgot. Another reason I keep the passenger peg mounts is they are used with the sidecase mounts.

@Greywolf, Oh yeah I didn't think of that. I've got 2 givi e-45s on order with that pl532 rack. Looks like they'll have to stay afterall.

My Givi side case worked as a rear slider..... the case was fine but the frame bent. I had to bend it back with a broom handle

Thanks for the great info with the frame sliders and passenger footpegs. Had no idea the frame sliders would not work because of the breadth of the pegs.

I got the SV Racing frame and swingarm sliders from Blair a couple days ago. Ordered them up and received them two days later. Quick turnaround! Also got the SuperBrace and GenMar up-and-back risers too. I'm installing the lot today.

Thanks also for the info about the footpegs/sidecase mounts. I'm ordering the SW Motech quick release racks to go with the E36's (or 45's). Still haven't made a concrete decision.

I figure even if the swing arm sliders aren't used in a fall because of the footpeg mounts hitting first or if the luggage or luggage bracket breaks the fall atleast they or going to be good for protecting the axle on a low curb scrape.
