R&G Case Sliders

I know the question comes up from time to time about which sliders to get... I crashed a while back and put a hole in my clutch cover. The frame sliders I had did their job protecting the tank & frame, but the clutch cover had a hole in it. After replacing it I decided a little protection was in order, so I added R&G case sliders, seen here. What I didn't realize at the time is that those sliders reduce your max lean angle and become the first thing to touch the ground - as opposed to the footpegs being the first. Here is a video of me learning this new info:

Summary - R&G case sliders (the small ones at the bottom edge of the engine case) will help you crash, then protect your bike while it's sliding!

Oh, by the way, I'm fine - a little bruised & sore but that's all. More importantly the bike is in decent shape. The shift linkage broke & there's a bit of gravel rash on the frame & tank, but overall it coulda been much worse.

Glad you are okay dude.

Damn - I even searched a bit and didn't come across that thread. If I had known I wouldn't have gone so far over.

About a year ago I bottomed out that slider once before (at a different track) but attributed it to the curbing at the apex being a little tall. I should have heeded that warning!

I have the R&G case covers, after reading about the sliders still allowing plenty of damage...

Pretty sure that's where I'm headed. The combination of the case sliders, OES rear engine sliders & "Milq's" front engine sliders kept the expensive bits off the ground, but I can't have those case sliders hanging down like that.

R&G notified of this issue

Here's a screen shot of an email I sent to R&G a few minutes ago:

I'll update this thread with the response I receive.

I noticed on twisted throttle you can't even buy the left hand slider anymore....

Cheers,
