Cheap E-Bay sliders

Anyone used these? I'm starting to think about sliders. I don't really want the "no cut" ones, just some tipover protection for when my roommate knocks the bike over with his car...

Your gonna have to cut a wierd section of your fairing to get them to work and it doesn't look like they will stick out that far. I had some cheap ebay one's before and the bolt stripped out and did alot of damage to my fairing

The performance was what worried me more- I'm fairingless so the "no cut" ones are just more hardware and more potential for brakage. Bolt stripped, eh? Aren't these things threaded into the motor housing? That would suck...

With sliders your damned if you do and damned if you don't. I've had sliders bend and screw the hell out of a frame, and on my Hawk I've had a slider snap clean off. It may as well not have even been there. I think just about any slider would work for a simple tip over though.

Kinda why I like the T-Rex design, when I was hit the slider that took the brunt of the hit (to the ground, my leg got her car) a fair bit of the plastic got worn away, and the tab bent a bit and it still protected everything. Had the tab not bent it could have bent the frame instead.
