Basically any online sport bike store. Kneedraggers.com, bikebandit.com, and loads of others. Make sure that they dont require cutting your fairing.

The no-cut ones are junk. Some bikes, like my old yzf 600r, didn't require it anyways. Most bikes require cutting, some companies make no-cut frame sliders for said bikes, but have heard in many cases they don't do their job.

Make sure they are made outta something like Derlin, they hold together pretty well in a fall but not well enough that they hurt the bike. I haven't heard about the no cut ones not working, but it could be that they dont attach to the frame due to the no cut.

I'd go with the pro-tek. There doesn't seem to be a difference between the two and the pro-tek is cheaper. Thats just my :2cents: though.

Intuitive sliders are few of the best, made from delrin. And I speak from crash test on two bikes, both frame and bar sliders.

Cutting, I think they meanth drilling holes in the fairing to mount the frame sliders into the engine bolts.

I broke 2 vortex sliders in one day. The grade 5 bolts werent strong enough to hold a 30mph slide on pavement, which is pretty dissapointing.

You want a quality slider? Get the extended Freestyle inginuity sliders. The body is extra long chromoly steel. Its secured by a grade 12 (!!!) bolt. The pucks are derlin, secured by a grade 8 bolts with a no load design (the bolts hold the pucks in place, but take no stress during a crash)

Also, when installing make sure to use washers (that should be supplied) and its a good idea to go after them with a torque wrench

Are frame sliders generic like most aftermarket parts or are they bike specific? I could find very few for my bike, like most aftermarket parts for it, and the ones I have are cheap looking, and wont stick out to far once they are attached to the frame. Any suggestions?

Most are bike specific. If you don't want to cut the plastic then usually they will be a bit harder to find depending on bike. Lots of people sell generic ones that require cutting.

Woodcraft makes a cool set too....

I think most are specific, but you probably could modify them. The only reason I think they are specific is the size of the bolt you have to use to mount them, Im sure the bold could vary for differnet bikes.
