Good slider spools

Value and good insurance
These fit perfectly in a 2012 Suzuki DL650 V-Strom. It's really serving two purposes in one, spools for bike service, and sliders for protection. On the specific bike, they mount several inches from the ends of the swing-arm. Which, when used for a lift, I imagine is a good thing (chain service, tire changes, etc.) but for protection, perhaps lower on the arm would protect better. But, that's a bike issue, nothing to do with the product. I put these on _after_ a spill that did some light damage to the rear axle bolt and I didn't want to risk serous damage. I obliged this install with a subsequent spill on really loose, deep gravel, the sliders did a fine job - although gravel is impossible to 'slide' on - rather, anything protruding grips the gravel and drags along. The size of the sliders was generous enough to help keep the chain, sprocket, and Scottoiler feed tube higher up off the gravel. Very little damage was noted on the slider (it was a low speed tip fortunately). The slider plastic seemed a little soft compared to others, but I think that would be a good thing since you want to wear off the slider and not the bike parts. The spools are solid as well as the hardware. I'd liked to have had stainless steel M8 bolts and a harder anodized finish, but for the price, everyone should have some of these. Recommended for all bikes.

Just grab a allen wrench and throw them on. For sure go with the 10mm. Good size and functionality. Though I have never gone down to know for sure, I am confident they will do the job should I go down.

Bolted right up to my 07 R1. Looks great and functions just as well.
