Frame sliders - where to get the good and cheap kind!

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' at netrider.net.au started by vagrant, May 29, 2007.

  1. Apologies if this is a weekly thread starter, but I have doen the search and come up wanting. This may be because I am inept at searching forums, but so be it.

    Frame Sliders - need good quality and cheap! :LOL:

    Bike: 2007 GSXR600. Hopefully, considering this design is now 2 years old, there should be some decent aftermarket solutions out there. I have had two quotes so far - Suzuki $280 (from stealership) and custom built $240.

    As my fairing is still nice and shiny, I am loath to cut into it(although I hate the idea of using bracketed sliders). So bracket type ones are fine.

    If you have any suggestions please reply or shoot me a pm.

    Cheers,
    vagrant

  3. The prices you state sound pretty good to me. Whats your problem?
    Good + cheap dont always go together. Like fantastic pay for SFA :)

  4. its called tongue-in-cheek or mild sarcasm or hell i dont know.....

    everyone looks for the optimum quality vs price on everything they buy. If they dont, they have too much money and not enough sense. Just trying to get a consensus of others' experiences with the cheap/expensive ones they bought.

    Do you know how much it costs to make 2 frame sliders? not $280. But that is a whole other issue, and not worth getting into here.

    Its cool, I am contacting a local guy to see if he can sort me out. :cool:

  7. Mate, I just bought some of this guy for a 2004 R1.

    He is great! Awesome service and happy to answer any questions.

    They arrived in the post today, and in all honesty, I can't tell the difference between these and a set a mate paid $220 for...The build quality is great.

    He has heaps of stuff in his ebay store, all quality stuff.

    Cheers,
    Ash
