Sliders (anyone try these?)

This seems like TOO simple a solution to not cutting the fairing.

Very simply if you see the diameter of the bolt that holds that little piece on, you can see that thing snapping off within a millisecond of it touching the ground rendering it's effectiveness zero. Cheap is as cheap does.

Go with Champs no cut. I just installed mine and it took me all of 20 minutes for both sides.

see here. https://zx-10r.net/forum/showthread.php?t=26641

I wasnt going to buy them... I just wanted to see if anyone had. I figured if someone got burned by them, this would be a good chance to speak up.

Far western suburb of Detroit. Oakland County. I live about 30 miles from downtown Detroit (thankfully).

Hey you headed to Mid-Ohio in Sept?

I'm going the 26th. Can't wait.

Not Gingerman or Putman yet. Grattan 3 times now. I've been riding sportbikes for 18 years and motorcycles for 30 but just got on the track for the 1st time this year. Damned if I wish I hadn't did it a looong time ago. Man I was hooked my 1st time at Grattan on my big ZX-12R so I went out and bought the 10. Glad I did too man, I love this bike. i took the 12 out last Sunday for the 1st time since buying the 10 last month and it feels like riding a Goldwing or something compared to the 10. LOL

I'm doing Mid-Ohio this month and then I may try to get one more day in before the end of the year. Next year I'll be doing at least 10-15 days. I want to get to Road America, Putnam, Grattan, Mid-Ohio, and Autobahn, maybe Gingerman but I've heard it's not the best around. Grattan is just a blast and last time out, the 1st time on the 10 for me, we ran it counterclockwise, that was awesome.

Fortunately, my wife and kids are great about my track days and loves to come along with me.
