These guys have got some great crash protection sliders.
I have got set of the frame sliders on order as you read this.
They are works of art and functional.
I hate to release this info as i like to be unique but there are no 2010 Zs
anywhere around me so i figured i would share this info with you guys.

They are in france and shipping is outrageous but they are functional
and beautiful well made and look like they should have been factory.
Take a look pt no. RLK27...SWEET.Ride Safe...Barry;)

Nice looking stuff - but I couldnt find prices listed. And shipping is high too, eh?

I still think Rizoma is the shyte. They also have very nice frame sliders - $225 for the pair, which is expensive, but you can get them shipped domestically, rather than internationally... Not sure how that compares to what you paid for these ones...

Just recieved TBR Sliders today and im very happy with them!
Cost American with outrageously high shipping was$493.32.
I know that sounds like a lot but the protection and the look of these things are well worth it to me.
Here are some before and afters.

They look great, but that's highway robbery. I thought the Rizoma parts were silly expensive at $300 for the engine protection set, but $500? You gotta be kidding me.

I'm trying to decide between getting a cage or some regular sliders. Those things look beautiful, but I can't stomach that cost.

They are billet aluminum not delrin or other plastic type
material that most sliders manufactured with.

Like they say if you wanna play yougotta pay.
Especially if you want to look good doing it.
Granted ive seen some nice crash cages and thought about it. They look tough as hell but i want a more subtle look. But as they say to each his own.
Even though i havent seen another 10 zed in town ive always played on the other end of the spectrum of uniqueness. My sv the way i have modded it gets called a Duc all the time. Although i would never own one its nice to have your ride recognized as somthing special rather than lumped in with the norm.

Wait wait wait - you paid $500 for these??? MAN! thats just....well, thats nuts man! I got my Rizoma frame sliders for $225 - and they are also made from billet aluminum, and look just as good as these do. Im guessing that yours are aluminum with delrin sliders so they are replaceable, right? Or is the entire slider aluminum, so if you wreck, the set gets tossed?? I was biting the pillow at $225 for the Rizoma stuff...cant imagine paying $500 for this.

You, sir, have too much disposable income on your hands. Im fining you an additional $100, which I shall place into the Bell Star Cerwinske helmet charity fund that I am currently running (congrats, you are the first donation!) :)
