they are indeed bike design sliders as for which they are exactly i have no idea since they came with the bike when i bought it

as for the black ones in the front they actually aren't crash protectors they are the cop lights i plastidipped since im not allowed to have blue lights on the bike and i kinda liked the look of them haha

Nice job Sven! Really looks great ! Hope it rides as nice as it looks, did it come with bags ?

How about some pictures of the back end ?

it sadly didn't come with any bags

the back end doesn't look the best right now since the cops had a big metal plate with their antenna on it and to attach it they cut a line in the trunk i filled it in but it still needs some pain i've been looking for the right one to match the fairings sadly i can't find the color code for the cop bikes till i find that the rear will look not the best

i also still need to address the clear coat peeling at the front

Initially, I thought your blue lights might be some kind of rubber pad... reason I ask is I once saw some fairing protectors that attach with two-way tape, and with all the crash bars out there, the bike can still roll over onto the mirrors more easily than we like. It would be nice to have something to protect the upper part of the fairing from scraping pavement if it went down.
Someone had TechSpec make an upper fairing strip for Gen3, but it never was marketed by TechSpec visibly.... not that they would last long anyway in a crash, but they at least kept the upper edge of Gen3 protected in a tipover.
Maybe I find some of those knee puck sliders and adapt those.... the fairing protectors I saw were for sport bikes and they seem to have not caught on either, now disappeared.

if you are interested in modding sliders to fit i would recommend to look at the bike design race cut sliders i think those could be easily fitted as upper fairing sliders/crash protection

edit: here's a link for the 'race cut' sliders https://www.bike-design.com/en-gb/ca...-pads-race-cut

Most if not all of those are at the main engine mount bolt height, which is just at the pivot point in a tipover, and the bike just rolls over on them until the wheels come off the ground and the mirror/top edge of fairing contacts/ can break Gen3 mirror stay.
What works a bit better is if they stick out another inch or two, even better if they mounted higher (T-Rex sliders on the crash bars are a bit, but not out enough. Garauld's sliders on Canyon Cages better IMHO)......
Thus I'm looking for something to put at/near upper part of fairing to prevent contact up there... out enough perhaps to save a mirror (FZ1 mirrors will fold up easier and closer to the windshield)..... but of course, function means less attractive over form/appearance.
