Woodcraft Frame Slider Base Ducati 848 / 1098 / 1198
The frame slider base for the 1098 spent a lot of time in R&D. The narrow engine makes for a somewhat long slider needed to reach the bodywork. Woodcraft were concerned that a standard slider would have a tendendcy to bend and/or break - causing damage to the frame and engine.
With this in mind, they made a support bracket that clamps securely to the frame to reinforce the slider. Again Woodcraft had a test rider try them out (with a crash while racing) and they held up perfectly, helping to protect the tank and water pump. A well worth investment for protecting your Italian beauty.
Their patent pending design features a slider puck that can be replaced with one bolt. What makes the Woodcraft design unique is the perpendicular attachment bolt for the puck. By not having a hollow out the puck it leaves the sliding surface of the puck solid. This provides 48% more plastic to slide on, dramatically improving puck life. The side mount also eliminates the hassle of trying to dig out a bolt through a distorted puck hole.
Great product terrible instructions
The instructions are way to vague. Pictures that are useful would be nice specific to the bike you are installing the product on. You have to pull a motor mount which is no big deal but they could at least tell you how to do it in the instructions provided for the guy who isn't familiar with thier frame slider bracket mounting system. Also you must remove the exhaust servo and you will need the servo buddy to blank off the electrical connector that returns to the wiring harness. There is no snipping of the exhaust servo as mentioned on woodcrafts site that I can see; the mounting of the right hand side brack only can be accomplished by the complete removal of the exhaust servo. Plan on spending a good 1-2 hours on install which should be much quicker if the instructions were legit. After you figure it all out it's pretty easy and mounts well but, they do have tight clearances!

really easy to change track bodywork On my gsxr 600
Before I had shogun sliders and would have to remove the engine mount bolt with slider every time I took the bodywork off. Now i just have to remove the puck so there's less wear and tear on the engine mount threads. Haven't crashed them yet so hoping they hold up.

I was looking for some frame sliders(no cut), but ended up getting these because price and ease of replacement if involved in a crash. On the 2013 zx6r the install was a breeze, just take your time and mark the small amount of fair to be removed and go slow I used a very sharp utility knife and when slow. I hope I never have to use them. Don't forget to purchase two(2) frame slider pucks, they are sold individually.

Easy to install, visually appealing
The install went pretty smoothly. A couple of things to note, however:
1. Make sure you have a long allen key set for installing these. I was under the impression these would be socket heads, and had already pulled out one of the bolts when I made the discovery. Could have saved myself a trip to the hardware store.
2. Apply some anti-seize to the threads, and they'll go in much easier.
