Frame sliders offer the greatest protection only when they are fitted to a solid point on the motorcycle. On most modern sport bikes these connection points are often hidden by the fairing. In this case most other companies require you to modify or cut the fairing in order to install the frame sliders. Evotech has crated the Street Defender ?no cut? series of frame slider kits to protect your bike in the most efficient way; and without making any modification or cutting of the original fairing.
