No cut frame sliders vs cut frame sliders


New Member
Hi I'm going to install frame sliders on my 2016 FZ6R soon. I had cut frame sliders on my 2009. But would rather avoid cutting the fairings. Are cut sliders that much better than no cut? Is there any real difference? I'm most concerned about it getting knocked over while parked. Which sliders provide better protection for tank and fairings if knocked over?


From my experience, yes, frame sliders will protect your bodywork if the bike gets knocked over.

I've always used no-cut sliders.

I've unintentionally tested the GYTR cut-style sliders and can confirm they completely prevent fairing contact with the ground.
However, the bolt holding the puck bent upon impact, and had to be replaced along with the puck.
