I need to pick up a pair of frame sliders for my 05 FZ6, does anyone know where to pick up a set?

There's Motivation, Intuition, Spiegler(LSL), FS6, Yamaha, what else? I was warned against metal frame sliders because they can catch and dig into the pavement, which kind of defeats the purpose. I saw that someone was unhappy with one of the brands because the black was fading after only a year. (I tried to get to the archives to get the name, but my browser just keeps hanging.) Everyone seems to agree that they're important to have.

I'm leaning towards Intuition at the moment.

I have the Motivation sliders on my bike and like them very much. IIRC, they DON'T have metal sticking out anywhere to snag the road...only Delrin material (if that's the name).

Yes. The motivation and FS6 sliders are made of Delrin, a thermoplastic.

I got my replacement parts two weeks later than anticipated. they look pretty good, and I would recommend them if they had their whole operation straightened out.

I just recieved my two piece sliders last week. I think I would avoid them. I did like the one piece slider they make though. There aren't any problems with those that I know of. They aren't as flashy as some. Watch out for the LSL sliders, there was at least one problem with them causeing more damage then they prevented because of there design (broke the frame). The motivation sliders are pretty nice and pretty good looking, they have a nice fit and finish. Just avoid the FS6 two piece sliders. The one piece are great, but the two piece have issues. They have a pretty long aluminum stem that causes the need for extra long bolts in which they were having problems getting and ended up having mismatched hardware.

I have three of the mentioned sliders in hand and have installed them. I have seen the LSL sliders.

....my two cents. :beer

I'm sure the FS6 problems have been worked out by now, it was an inconvenience for sure, but once I received the replacement puck and bolt from FS6 everything went on just fine and they appear to me that they will provide the best protection for more than just the frame of the bike if it ever goes down (knocks on wood). The LSL sliders don't look like they cover enough of the bases, to me.

Sorry my post wasnt detailed. I got the one piece sliders and was wondering if anyone had trouble with them. I think the one piece sliders were a good deal at a very good price. However, if i was still working right now im sure that the machine shop has the allen head bolts long enough and in metric. If i was allowed to start working right now i would be trying to help all of you guys out. Hell ive still got another 5 months before i can go back to work again.

My black LSL's are starting to turn a little purple from being parked out in the sun. But I would still recomend them as they did their job when I lowsided. The frame and tank were unscathed and the slider was only slightly ground down.

In Australia there's Oggy Knobs, made in Melbourne. I just bolted a pair of them on. They're one piece designs, and just bolt up with spacers and long bolts included. Took me all of 5 minutes to put them on and they look great. Photos will be arriving soon...

Well, I like that name at least. I hear Australia has tons of riders, including a lot of women. I must visit some time!

I'd like to see more people taking up bikes in Australia, but it's pretty cool. My first Christmas Toy Run last year was a blast, around 250 bikes turned out and we all raised around $1,000 for needy families.

During that run I only had my lil 250 Yammy, this year I will be on my black Fazer, and that WILL be fun!

(Sorry for going a bit OT...lol)

Just a heads up, I put on a pair of Motivation sliders on. They couldnt be any easier, remove one bolt, put on the sliders, and i'm ready to roll. strong enough to support my weight when i pressed on them. i hope i'll never have to use them. thanks for all the input.
