Hi,

I've done a search but can't seem to find any real info. Therefore...

One of the first additions I want to make to my FJR (when I get it) is 'sliders' or 'crash protectors'. (not that I intend to crash, but I dropped my current ride after only 2 hours ownership, when I forgot to put the side stand down. Doh!!)

I see there are several different alternatives available. Is there a consensus as to which ones offer the best protection?

Regards,

Glenn

My vote would be the R&G ones from Bike Jonny.

They require a hole to be made into the fairing panels, but they do work very well.

I got Mokos on mine. Went on EASY with no holes drilled. Heard from others that they work well - I hope I never have a testimonial to that!

I went with Moko's because I'm a coward when it comes to drilling holes in my plastic. Kind of silly as as I drilled holes for powerlets.
The Moko's were a breeze to install. I found that it could be done without removing the fairing, just loosen it up.

Good luck

I have R&G's, which have been tested on a drop :oops:

But, IIFC, Mokos weren't available back then. On my next FJR, I will go for the Mokos, not really wanting to drill the fairings again. When sold secondhand with drilled fairings, it may put the prospective buyer off (I don't know, maybe).

Its probably only a couple of quid, but some insurance companies do give a discount to bikes fitted with R+G sliders.

Is there any word whether the slider mounting hardware will need to change for the 2006 FJR? (I think there's been some body work done.)

If you are looking for sliders for an '06 I would wait a little while. I emailed motivation to find out if their "no cut" slider kit would work on an '06, here is what they said:

"We took a closer look at a hirez pic of the the new 2006 FJR and have
come to the conclusion that our street kit will most likely not fit.
Sorry!
We will develop on as soon as we get a bike to test it on. We will keep you posted.

I am not sure about the others but I am willing to bet it is going to be the same story.

I'm curious, where on earth did you find the picture of the Yamaha slider? I haven't seen it on their web page accessories..

(I was kinda hoping that they would come out with one... From the pictures, it almost looked like a slider bolt might have a straight shot, without cutting)..

Thanks!
Ron

You need to look on the UK/Euro website not the Merican one

I might be wrong, but the way the new fairing opens up, it looks like the R&G sliders would bolt in without drilling the plastic!!, now wouldn't that be a lucky turn.
