Hello, I was looking for aftermarket frame sliders and I only saw a couple specifically designed for this model: R&G and Puig. Both have a single bolt on each side. I have the stock frame sliders, which also has a single bolt, and is low profile. I was looking for a pair with more mass, and a little further from the fairings. I was wondering if anyone has found something they like.

I like the design of the Puig - it's like a plate but I have read about them breaking or bending easily in low-speed low sides (20 mph and less). That makes me wonder if a single bolt frame saver is a good idea to rely on, and maybe also get fairings for the track. I plan to use the bike on the street and track. I like T-Rex - 2 points of contact and did well in a low side. They haven't engineered a set for this model.

The other things I plan to get for protection is lever guards, and engine guards.
Thank you for your thoughts.

I have been looking for a nice looking and high quality frame slider for a few weeks. My bike is currently using the OEM one, but 馃樄 one snap retainer dropped and was not able to get a replacement part.

My R6 is using R&G frame slider which works extremely well, so I will choose that one for my fireblade if there is no better chonice. But R&G seems out of stock everywhere.

Some fireblade owners are using Evotech Performance sliders but I really dislike that design. There is another one from SW-Motech, which seems to be nice looking but not sure the quality. There are also sliders from sato racing and gb racing which seems not well designed.

Thank you for the suggestions - I was not aware of some of those. I went ahead and went with the R&G - I ordered the racing version accidentally. I think these are lower profile, but maybe this is better since they're a single bolt on each side. I'll post about the fit and clearance. I ordered from www.motorcycleid.com (not sure if the inventory is correct) but the manufacturer has some stock on their site.

The R&G frame sliders came in today and I installed them. They stick out substantially further than the Honda sliders. They were simple to install, although it was a little challenging to torque them down without them rotating. I had to hold the puck with both hands, while I pushed on the torque wrench with my foot. I am happy with the way they look and sit.

Looks so nice! I am still deciding my frame sliders between R&G and Evotech Performance.


For Engine protection, I am using GB racing ones, really recommand it.

And do not forget Radiator guard, which is the most important. I am using Evotech Performance, strongly recommand.
