Rizoma?

Hi all, has anyone used Rizoma frame sliders & fork/rear spindle protection? Like the style but if they're no good there's not much point is there??? Recommendations? Thanks.

The mechanic at Pro Italia recommended the motovation sliders. He said to avoid the (rizoma sliders - although there other stuff is great). He also said that he highly recommends sliders as the have had Brutales come in that have been dropped and the way the bike is designed the frame and gets really badly damaged - much more than one would think.
But I guess any slider is better then no slider!

My opinion is that everything that Rizoma makes is high quality. That being said I like the look and fit of the Motovation sliders linked above.

Think I'll go with Oggy Knobs, had them on my R1 when i crashed. Did a semi high side, smacked REAL hard into the road then slid for about 20 metres. Frame & engine never touched the road, just a slight oil leak from low down on the motor where the clutch shaft goes into the cases. LOTS of cosmetic damage though! Think they passed the test pretty well. I'll get axle protectors too this time.

Do you guys know what happens on the MV when that slider which uses the MV engine/frame bolt gets hooked. It rips right out of the engine, most of the time cracking the head.
Look for a slider that has a secondary fastening system, in other words, something that will fail before the engine bolt.
There are many sliders, for the MV's, which use a bolt actually drilled into the engine/frame bolt, meaning this will fail before the main bolt.
Keep looking at the site sponsors options, there are many options availible guys.
Have a read at this

On these one's you can clearly see the thinner bolt going into the thicker engine bolt.

Yeah Donsy you're absolutely right. I have those you recommend on my bike and am very happy with them as they don't 'stick out' and therefore are much less likely to 'catch' or get hooked up in the event of a slide http://www.e-securedsite.com/gutsype...Agusta%20Store Cheers Brian http://gallery.mvagusta.net/bgwells/photo/47912/

Mick...that.. (1078 stuff fit 1090) I cannot say. Alex (Gutsy) may know. And they are 100% to deal with. Dunno about Australia but to me in Northern Ireland he was super fast and helpful in every way. Thanks for the kind comments regarding my bike however the kisses and hugs aren't necessary! Cheers Brian
