I like the engine sliders and the suspension link rod to lower the ride height by 20mm. Finally my answer to getting the rear end planted better!

those look awful!! bottom line if the bike is dropped then maybe those work, but on a track when you high slide they will shear right off, the amount of force on those is ridiculous
Thanks from mark419ny and Sprinkles

Least of my worries if I high side on a track
I think they're great for a low side through the canyons.
SATO racing has made pretty reliable high end stuff hopefully they've test this before they put it out on the market.

there is nothing that can save you on a high side at 110 mph on the track, these are more for that ops moment on the driveway at 2mph, personally i dont like frame (or engine in this case) sliders as they ruin the aesthetic of the body lines , but if that can protect me from a $2,000 tip over then im ok with it.

hahahaha when was the last time you saw a crashed bike and the frame sliders were still on or intact?? and for tipped over bikes your mirrors/foot pegs/ crank case will hit before those even work! My point exactly!!

I've low sided without frame slider on my R1 had to replace the fairings expensive and I've low sided with frame slider on and I just needed sanding and touch up paint - cheap Both slides happened through the canyons one was an oil slick, and the other was a rock slide from the mountain around a blind turn.

I agree they ruin the lines of the bike but I learned they do help in a low side for street/canyon riding but useless on a track.

I don't agree with this at all. More than 75% of the time they worked properly for all the crashes I witnessed and my own. You just need to know what to look for in sliders. ie Mounting hardware, location, length of sliders, diameter of sliders, cut/no-cut, under-fairing, etc....
