    Are all frame sliders created equal?

    Just browsing ebay and some other stores online. I see frame sliders from Hong Kong for 20 bucks free shipping, and then some 89.95 frame sliders.

    are cheap frame sliders less effective than the more expensive ones?

    You should know that in this life we get what we pay for.

    I use these, as well as alot of others here. Top quality, great price.

    I can not attest to the quality of the product from Hong KOng, so I will neither praise or condemn them, but hundreds if not thousands of people have used the Champs Sliders, and there are enough bikes here that had minimal damage because of them.

    No slider can keep the bike from being damaged, but a good one will reduce the amount and that is what Champ's do without a doubt.

    I run them on my bike and would not hesitate for a moment to suggest them to anyone.

    Champs. I dont think I'd use the 20 dollar ones, although they may be better than nothing.

    That's what I was thinking too. I figured that the cheaper they are, the less effective they are, but then again there are some things that the cheaps do just as good as the hi quality ones. although I can't think of any examples right now.

    Looks nice! I had a set of bars on my Nighthawk. Never really used the Highway Pegs because I have a long wheelbase (legs).

    Also, those bags look great, I feel like I've seen them before.

    The owner before me kept his on his bike for a year or so without taking them off. When I bought the bike and removed them, there was no rubbing between the bag and the tail, just dust

    Do you have something between the tail and the bag?

    Another +1 for Champ's! They are freakin' tough.
    Spend money on them now and save a LOT later.


    I've seen more than a few pics of the el-cheapos from eBay broken right off,
    allowing the engine case to get intimate with the pavement.

    the champs are nice... you can set your bike on it's side in a parking lot and they're long enough to keep your fairing and tank off the ground. -just the tiniest little mark on the slider

    don't ask me how I know

    Mine did. It was my son on it. I ask how high it went...'at least 5' and still going up when I lost track of it'. Turned a mild lowside into a total loss, but it was a unique situation. I still use sliders. I tend to throw my bikes on the garage floor a lot.

    Kid walked away without a scratch thankfully, and a full understanding of why he can't ride the REX.

    Sexy and practical. Looks real nice.
    And it gives you the flexibility to go stunting if you get bored with ridin' it the normal way.

    Thanks Racer!


    yanno the funny thing is that when i was at the local stealership to buy the pegs today, the douche behind asked what i was riding...i came in w the guard off the bike, so i could see that the pegs i wanted fit...

    so I reply that its a ZRX and he goes ' so you gonna stunt that sh!t?'...

    i gave him a stupid look and said that 'tricks are for kids' and i'd rather stunt his mom and walked out...

    maybe ill get a 12 o'clock bar and go punch his mother...

    I had meant to ask this same question last week. But again POOF the ZRXOA takes care of me. I just ordered two sets of Champs for the girls.

    Thanks Hoolies.
