Protect the (termi) exhust

Recommended Posts

jpiazza7
Tossing out a question here.  Maybe someone knows from experience..
 
Would frame sliders and spool sliders protect the muffler in the unfortunate event that the bike is laid down?  
I've laid my bike down twice.  First time was on the right side (with stock exhaust and tented the muffler), second was on the left side (with termi exhaust - no damage done). Both times, my bike only suffered decently minor cosmetic damage.  First time cost me $300 to replace oem parts, second was $150.  My thought is, if I was to ever lay it down again on my exhaust side, the aftermarket exhaust would be by far the most expensive thing to replace.  Soo, are sliders going to save my exhaust??

I doubt you'll find anything out there that protects exhaust ...

Maybe something like this http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/rg-racing-hexagonal-exhaust-protector
RG also makes protectors for other exhaust shapes so you'll have to do some research. I'm interested in these but have not seen how effect they are in the event of a crash.
There is also this super cheap option on ebay, but again, I have not seen how effective they are http://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-Exhaust-Guard-Muffler-Slider-Shield-Protector-Cover-/222128382720?hash=item33b7e22300:g:9bEAAOSwHQ9WX2mQ&vxp=mtr

You would need a set of sliders that protrude past the exhaust.
OES And woodcrafts are the only ones i know of.. unless you count fixed-peg design rearsets(gilles,lightech...)

This is the result of my low-side a couple months back... frame slider barely got touched... this peg and the handlebar slider took the brunt of the damage
 

ATGATT... ATTATT, two acronyms I live by.

This isn't a bad idea, but kinda think it's like wearing headgear to school! ; )  The compromise is tough! 
 
@sorkyah, makes sense about longer frame sliders..  guess I'll just be a touch more cautious on the right turns.
