Universal sliders for motorcycles, such as the Yamaha MT15, are aftermarket accessories designed to protect the bike in the event of a fall or a slide. They are typically mounted on the frame or other strategic points of the motorcycle and are intended to absorb impact and prevent or minimize damage to critical components during a crash.
- Crash Protection: Universal sliders act as a sacrificial component, taking the impact in the event of a slide or fall, thereby minimizing damage to the motorcycle’s frame, engine, and other vulnerable parts.
- Frame Protection: Sliders are often positioned on the frame to provide an additional layer of protection, reducing the risk of costly repairs in case of a low-speed or stationary drop.
- Easy Installation: Universal sliders are designed to be easy to install and usually require minimal modifications to the motorcycle. They often come with installation instructions and can be installed by motorcycle enthusiasts or professionals.
- Aesthetics: In addition to their protective function, sliders can also enhance the aesthetics of the motorcycle, giving it a sportier or more customized look.
