These K-Speed sliders look scarily close to your knees being that high up.
In any accident situation where you are thrown forward, those could result in serious injury.yes, i have a pair of k speed sliders - not exactly the model o those photos - for 35 usd.
My knees sometimes touch them especially under heavy braking or with a pillion rider but if i am wearing a pant with knee protection, i just hold my knees on the slider and it gives a better control.
cannot fully recommend such a design of course but for the price, it is good and they protect the bike also can place some plastic bags after shopping
If you've ever sat on one, you'd realize that you hit your shin, not your knee.you are right about a possible knee injury but what about moto guzzi owners? they are prone to this all the time then due to the classic twin engine.
I have them. Great fit, and they never actually touch the engine casing itself except where they're bolted on.saw this in another thread, not exactly frame slider but protects the engine. Has anyone tried it?

I'm still looking at getting some sliders higher up
It's a 10mm bolt. Standard spec for a stainless 10mm is 31 ft/lbs dry. (42 N-m)Yea I've got an F with the Yoshi sliders. Even if you repositioned them on another mount on the R, I'm not sure how much they'll protect the fairings as they don't come out that far.
What was the torque spec that you used to put these sliders on?
Standard torque values are easy to find on Google or in any number of mechanic's references, they are not unique to Honda.
I wouldn't say they're worth $300, but they do a great job of protecting the engine. I had to wait two weeks to get them in red. You need to send them a message beforehand asking if they have the right colours available. They also arrived within four days. They ship with DHLI saw when you posted pics, how long was delivery its saying August/sept now bit of a long time maybe made to order. Did you ask to see if had colour first you wanted?
Are they worth $300?
