ok then. let me be a bit more specific for you. on the clutch side, it really doesnt matter what you have on there. if it bends or flexes, the most you are going to have to do is replace the clutch cover. very easy and not hard to get to at all.
on the stator side, you have to worry about the water jacket that is located right under the frame. if a frame slider is located over it (as every brand is) if the slider collapses in, you have to replace the water jacket. not a very expensive part, but you have to drop the motor to get to the very top bolt.
with the lightech slider, it mounts to the frame. yes it is physically bolted in two locations to help with front to back collapse, but it has no support on the bottom end to keep the slider from collapsing into the water jacket. the motovation kit does. its mounted in multiple locations.
Being right is bitter-sweet when you're ruled and surrounded by morons.
