Default Race Railz or Frame Sliders options

Hey guys. It looks like powers stuntworx closed down and race railz are no longer made? I was wondering if anyone knew of any alternative's to the race railz for our 05-06 bikes. Also, I'd be interested in frame sliders as well if I can't find a good race rail option. Anyone have experience going down with any frame sliders? If you could give info on how the bike turned out, how the sliders held up, etc.

I think this could be a good staple thread for 05-06 frame slider and race rail options since like I said before, there really isn't an 05-06 specific thread on these forms of protection. Any pics are gladly welcomed as well. Thanks guys!

I have no experience with race railz. As far as frame sliders go, I had CUT Shoguns and went down hard at 65+ and they took the hit like a champ.

Hey you
I vote frame sliders... Ive heard people comment that the race rails have a longer surface area (obviously) and are more likely to catch on something as the bike is sliding and send it tumbling.
The sliders will NOT protect your plastics, well they will to a certain degree, but they're meant to protect the more vital parts on the bike.... oh... DO NOT get the swingarm spools that have a slider at the end of it, they dont do any sliding... they either bend or tear the threaded mount on the swing arm right off....ask me how I know :/

I was originally going to get the lime green rail sliders that are often seen on the monster bikes that are $120 but they don't look like they protect much. I have a monster so I only wish the mushroom came in green and I've been wondering if I can swap it out for a lime green puck. I imagine the fit is universal. Anyone know for sure?

As for the possible frame damage people talk about, they are talking about a rare serious high speed crash in which case your bike is going to be wrecked completely anyway. Verses a common chance of accidental drop.

If you get sliders, don't waste your money on the "no-cut" ones.

I've extensively crash tested sliders on my old 04 ZX6R racebike

both vortex and woodcraft

bent engine mount bolts twice on the vortex making them a bitch to get out of there, and also expensive to replace(almost the cost of a new set for a bolt and a puck)

Woodcraft held up better, have a better design and are easier and cheaper to replace


my two cents
