just wondering if anyone has had an incident where these fork sliders actually came in handy. just wondering if they are worth purchasing.

I have seen crashed bikes with no fork sliders, and the forks are never grinded down. My bike has them, but only because the previous owner put them on. People acutally think they are for tricks, like Pogo Pegs on bicycles.

I just bought mine. Just think of it as insurance - pay little upfront, or risk paying more later if something happens.

I have them on my track bike. I saw them on the school bikes at California Superbike School and bought a set. From what I saw it depends on how you crash for them to be effective. Some fork sliders on the school bikes were mangled so they must help somewhat.

Clutch sliders are mainly used for Yamaha bikes due to their cable orientation, its one of the first thing to break
