EXETER, R.I. - R&G Racing has released a collection of carbon Kevlar tail sliders built to protect a bike’s tail from damage during light drops, slides and general everyday use. These accessories work much like R&G’s tank sliders, the company says, and can save users money in the long run by delaying the need for a full tail replacement.
Tail sliders are lightweight and strong, precision-molded to provide a snug fit onto the bike’s tail, according to the company. Each slider kit comes with a tube of silicone to help attach them to the tail plastics while allowing for damage-free removal and replacement.
Available applications are as follows:
• Aprilia RSV-4 (2009-2013)
• BMW S1000RR (2012-2013)
• Ducati 848/1098/1198 (all years)
• Ducati Panigale (2012-2013)
• Honda CBR1000RR (2008-2011)
• Honda CBR1000RR (2012-2013)
• Kawasaki ZX-10 (2011-2013)
• Kawasaki ZX-6R (2009-2012)
The company also has applications for the Kawasaki ZX-6R 636 (2013) and the Triumph Daytona 675 (2013) in the works.
Products are distributed through Rhode Island-based Twisted Throttle.
