New £65 Tank Sliders can save riders hundreds of pounds
R&G Racing has released its very latest protection product for motorcycles – Tank Sliders.
Airbox covers and fuel tanks are some of the most expensive bodywork parts to replace when damaged – even if buying used. With a new Ducati 1098S and Suzuki GSX-R1000 K9 tank costing £1359 and £649, respectively, the £65 (pair) sliders can save hundreds of pounds.
Available for a wide range of popular sports and naked bikes, R&G Tank Sliders are moulded to mirror the lines of the fuel tank and protect it by utilising a construction of superlight and super-strong carbon and Kevlar.
Finished off with an embossed R&G logo, the Sliders are supplied with a tube of silicone, needed to attach them to the tank. As long as the silicone is used, the guards can be removed without damaging paint and refitted or replaced, if need be.
R&G Sales Director, Simon Hughes, said: “R&G’s Aero Crash Protectors and Bar End Sliders already do a very good job in helping to prevent a machine from making contact with the ground if dropped, but the Tank Sliders are designed to help protect the tank should a bike start to roll. They’re also good for covering up any existing tank ‘scars’.”
Developed on track and now used by the California Superbike School, R&G Tank Sliders are available now for a wide variety of popular sportsbikes with additional fitments being offered continually.
