Turned out okay really.Losing a wing isn't too bad.I was really worried about the bodywork.So it was a win with that.Had they not been on there,the damage would have been very bad.I know that.The wing cracked off,but thankfully it didn't crack the cowl.Just snapped above the angle part that goes up and out to the tip.Aftermarket parts...so not so bad to replace.

Any further info/experience with the frame/wheel protection of either OEM or Evotech?

Thinking of getting front/rear wheel sliders and main frame slider. Looked at both mentioned and some from T-Rex Racing, which has an interesting rear wheel setup where the crash bobbins hold together in the axle shaft by magnets! Good for quick release I guess but not sure of how they would go in a slide.

I have Evotech and according to my dealer there is no comparison, Evotech have the cross frame support, Kawasaki do not, not really much to debate!

Evotech does look a tidier option.

h2madness, that would have been one of those moments where you just look, stunned, as the bike gracefully lies down!

Uh,I wish.Just started to make the turn...BOOM.She dropped so fast I couldn't catch er.I think I may have accidently pulled the front brake if only just a tap.That'll do it everytime.I can lift my 14R without much to do.Not this beastie.No way could I get her off the ground.Weird.Not sure what that's all about.Had it happened out in the boondocks...she'd still be sitting there!LMAO.With me starving right beside

"Evotech have the cross frame support, Kawasaki do not"...they don't cause it's a waste of material.It doesn't help in a dropover anyway.The stress is on the engine mount(where it's attached)Right into the frame..Actually,your evotech slider has a real weak spot.It's not directly connected to the main frame.That bolt holding it in there will snap probably.Plus it doesn't appear on their site that the bobbin actually comes out as far as the factory Kawi one.The shape of the Kawi one has a length to it that helps keep the bike from seesawing as it's sliding.Not so sure about that round bobbin.Looks like the tail could easily move and hit the ground.(the pipe anyway).I KNOW the kawi ones saved all that back there from hitting.The placement for the bobbin on yours is NOT at the physical center of the highest point of the side.Makes a BIG difference in how damaged it could be...hope ya never have ta find out...I suppose a real moving laydown would be really bad with either slider.Not much could stop damage except a crash cage.
