Fork Sliders and Swingarm Spools

I was just wondering if fork sliders are worth it and if champ makes them. I already have the champ frame sliders and am very happy with them and was gonna get the swingarm spools, just wanted to know if I should get the fork sliders and if he actually made them or not.

Ive never used them. Also i've never personally seen forks scrached in a wreck.

However I dont see how they could hurt. I have fram and swingarm sliders and tested them both on the 10...glad I had them f'sho!

Worth it... I think so. I ended up getting a set for my Ohlins forks to protect my investment from possible damage. I don't know if I would have put them on my oem forks though, never considered them until I dropped the coin for the Ohlins. The sliders are well made and install easily, as are the rest of Champs products. I am very happy with them.

Ground Zero, love the Ohlins forks! Me Jealous.

I have all three slider types on my bike. I have experienced and seen what sliders can do in a crash, and that not all sliders are created equal. I cannot say enough about how robust Champs sliders are. They look like they'll take some punishment if need be.

Best way to do that is to not put them to the "TEST" :)
