Is absolutely right.

They worked for one crash. Put new pucks on, and the second crash the whole slider assembly just came right out. May have been damaged from the first crash, it is hard to say. But with the thread through type, as long as the rod does not get bent, you just put new pucks on and go. It takes two 10mm sockets and 30 seconds to take the thread through off the motorcycle for wheel changes. I use captive spacers as well. I am not saying they are horrible sliders. But it makes more sense to ME, based on my experiences, to use the kind that are bolted to one another vs. fastened like bar end using expansion pressure.

Thanks for the feedback, this is the first I'm hearing Woodcrafts causing such damage to a bike. Gotta do some more research on this then.

IMSTuner, are you going to upgrade the battery at some point?

I don't think so since this is my daily rider. I will most likely track day prep my wife's 2012 ZX6R.

Just installed the 2016 Kawasaki ZX10R Fender Eliminator Tail Kit by Motodynamics. It was cheaper than most kits and the quality was great. https://youtu.be/mFlQ9y-Pxj4
