Evotech Frame Sliders

Has anyone tried or fitted the Evotech Frame sliders? They are rather expensive, but seem to get the best reviews and seem to be the best out for the 790.

yep! they fit really well, unlike these pictures below which are just way too massive for this forum.

Nice!
Thx for the pics. I was thinking of purchasing them as well.

"Hypothetically" in case of tipping the bike, do you think they are long enough to restrict any part of the engine to touch the ground? Does it say somewhere how much they weight?
Cheers!

I would combine them with the case savers on either side because you want to ensure two points of contact. With both the case protection and sliders in place, there is no way the engine or radiator will touch the ground.

I should have weighed them before installing but they can't weigh more than 3-5lbs.

Thanks Navy! The original pics online from Evotech make them look like they stick out a foot! I was a bit worried about that, but they look great. I was contemplating the case sliders as well....I should do a tipping test to see, but I am going to pick up a set of these sliders now. Appreciate the responses and added info gents!

Great pics, Navy. I was wondering how they looked in the flesh.

I'll be doing the same with the case savers and sliders.
