I just sold my Ducati and picked up the ZX10R up and did some simple slider mods today.


looking good! had those red sliders on mine and beware the color fades extremely fast.. I was very disappointed in them and switched back to black after they faded within a month or two and i keep my bike in the shade as much as possible and stored inside.

The woodcraft sliders are not ideal because they do not attach to one other through the axle. They stick in like bar ends. Evotech makes much better sliders.

I had both type and the woodcraft ones have been tested and prove on my Monster when I had a low-side at Thompson which saved my front forks.

Considering Woodcraft gear their products towards the beating track riders and racers subject their rides to, I would trust their products very much. The reason they utilize that design is to conserve time in replacing pucks as well as uninstallation for wheel changes I believe.

That is what i thought until i learned the hard way. I do about 15 track days per year, 90% of them on the zx10. Now I use evotech. :dontknow:

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.
