If you end up going with the LSL. Drop me a line I have a used set that is in great condition if your interested ?I am looking at LSL vs Axle Jacks for frame slider protection. I like the position of the axle jack rear peg (top of the rear shocks). Looking for stories of how bikes fare with each and some pics installed.
this looks promising - does the installation instructions come with the units - how easy/difficult it is for a newbie to install them ?The AXLJAK units are bolted directly to the frame at the strongest point on the bike. They are far better made and much stronger. I run them on my Thruxton as do 90% of the Transatlantic Challenge Competitors. If you want maximum protection, then you should go with the AXLJAK Units. Hope that helps in your decision.
Judging by the 1st photo, I'm guessing the muffler would get caned even with the sliders on the rear shocks? I totally agree about mounting the sliders on the casings with the small screws - not a smart place to mount it (from an aero structural engineer!). AXLJAK have the right idea.
