This is a post to give BRAUNSTEIN82 a public thank you for
creating and selling a great quality product. Today while
riding my Kat with my girlfriend, I hit some sand in the road.
This sand was hard to see due to the lighting of the street
(so please don't flame me with that you should have seen it
crap). We we thrown from the motorcycle at 35mph (I
actually think we may have been doing 45mph not sure).
While sliding on the road I could see my bike going the
opposite way of us. There were at least 15 ft. of distance
between myself (once I stop sliding) and the bike. As I
made sure my girlfriend was alright, I could see that my Kat
was completely down on the ground. Down as if I had not
installed any sliders.
I stumbled over to my bike to access the damages... Not a
scratch... Not a crack lens. There were minor scratching on
the stator cover. I looked for my slider and saw that it had
burn down as it slide down the street at God knows what
speed. I haven't ever experience anything like this before.
But to walk away from it with a few scratchs on me( through
my jeans), none on my girlfriend (I had recently purchased
her a riding jacket), and none to the bike is pure divine
intervention and an a testament to BRAUNSTEIN82 product.
So I am writing this post to encouraged those Kat riders who
have not purchased slider to purchase them. They really
work! And if you need to purchase them get them from
BRAUNSTEIN82. His product absolutely amazed me today.
And for those who are wondering if my frame is bent. I
checked that out throughly once I arrived home and no
damage was done to the frame.
Once again BRAUNSTEIN82 thanks for your quality product!
I just need to post about my experience with the sliders I
got from Braun.
I was moving onto the shoulder of an onramp to get off and
adjust a strap, when, to my suprise, the shoulder was an 8
inch drop into black gravel (thanks for the sign, MODOT).
I was moving at about 20, and the slider buried all the way
into the gravel. And didn't really help at all. My bike has a
few scratches, but no real damage.
What is really important is that the way Matt's sliders were
made, the bracket holding the slider itself bent backwards
while it was moving instead of torquing the frame. I know
the slider stopped it from sliding as far as it would have
(Into the ditch I slid into, most likely landing on me) and
bent enough so that there wasn't any damage to my frame.
It actually only slid a half of a foot.
I'm not sure if this was intentional on matt's part, but I'm
definately satisfied. I'll by buying another one from him
VERY satisfied customer. Thanks Dude
These sliders came in handy for me. After a long trip I
pulled up into the driveway and put the kickstand out... or at
least I though I did. The bike started to tip and I realized
she was going down no matter what I did.
The bike sputtered to a stop and konked out. I shook my
head in disgust and did the backward walk to pick her up.
The Katana was put back up and this time I made sure the
kickstand was out. I rested a minute and attempted to
assess the damage. It seems the framslider did the job and
kept the bike from contacting the ground. There was no
damage whatsoever. Thank you BRAUNSTEIN82 for the
So i was just pulling up to my cousin's house and hit a patch
of mud. Bike slipped right out from under me, i went off to
the right side a few feet. Bike was down less than 10
seconds. picked her up. Not much damage. I went down in
grass & mud. Braunstein's sliders saved my bike from any
damage. Another testimony for his frame sliders! I bent the
one slider a good bit. I will get pics up soon. Thanks again
I just got my new style sliders in today and they look
awesome. With these you don't need to remove the fairing.
Just go in through the backside of the fairing and the
bracket takes a little maneuvering. All in all about a 15 to
30 minute job. Plus they came just as I finishing putting on
my brand new fairing. Perfect timing.
