Bar End Sliders vs Stock Bar Ends?

Recommended Posts

z33guru
Anybody know how durable the stock bar ends are?  I'm planning to install sliders soon, and wonder if the stock bar ends are good enough protection or if I need to replace them with something else.

sadly, i have a fairly good idea. i ate it pretty good the other week and my left bar-end got somewhat mauled. it held up great. yeah, scratches...but no chips or
dents as far as i can see...
 
that said, i was toying w/ some aftermarket sliders too...let's see what others say...

It's a big chunk of metal screwed into the end of the bar. Yours bars will bend before it fails.

I think its made from steel. Solid steel. You can kill someone with it.

The bar risers or bar will bend long before you destroy the oem bar end.

They help with vibration also they're so solid and heavy.
