I bought these frame sliders and they are great. I got them for piece of mind in case I ever drop my bike.

They look nicer than R&G imo and are priced well! I am a happy customer!

If you decide to ship out the reinforced fork braces, I'd take a set of these too.
I know a little bit about a lot of things - usually just enough to be dangerous.

Reload, when you get a chance can you measure the assembled width?

I'm putting a GSXR fairing on my GR650 and can't find case savers, so these might be a viable alternative for me if they stick out further than the fairing. Thanks in advance!

It's opener there in the wide open air...

Reload,

How much for just the long bolt? Already have sliders, but snapped righty off in a low speed drop.
