Had a right-side lowside on track and the GB Racing cover did the job - it was ground down, but the clutch cover itself didn't suffer a scratch.

Just digging this old thread up to provide some feedback on the T Rex frame sliders. Today I had a low side at the track on the left hand side. All I can say is that between the T Rex frame sliders and the Evotech axle sliders, they saved me the whole left hand side of the bike. The only damage was a broken gear lever (which I replaced so I could continue on with the day) and a few scratches on the clutch lever and bar end. Not one scratch on the fairing or tank. I can't recommend these enough after todays mishap.



Thanks from JeffD

Sorry to hear about your lowside, hope you didn't have any bodily damage either. Thanks for posting up on your results. This is the second report I've read on the forum about the T-Rex sliders saving the bike from significant damage in a lowside. The other lowside was reportedly a relatively slow-speed low side at the track and there was some minor scratching of the tail section but the tank also came out unscathed.

Crashing is like rolling dice, the worst injuries I sustained from track crashes were from a 60 mph crash vs being totally unscathed in a 120 mph off. Same with bike damage. Just like upgrading leather suit armor, "frame" sliders are good idea but you really never know the outcome. Good to see there are at least 2 real-world reports of the T-Rex doing a good job.

I put a Dainese reflective sticker on the huge left side T-Rex slider and people ask all the time (in a good way) what it is:
