Hello all,

As a new rider I am constantly building my info database on basic sportbike terminology.

For example, what is a scowl or a frame slider? What does a jet kit do for the performance of the bike? Etc......

If anyone could assist me, we could build a great database of basic information that someone new to sportbikes may need to get up to speed real quick.

smiles.

What are Frame Sliders?

Frame sliders are plastic about 30-45mm in diamter and usually bolt directly to the frame. In the event of a crash, they help protect the bike from damage. They touch the ground and grind down first. They wont save all the the damage, but they help.
