The no cut ones can cause more damage than they save
It depends... If you're only riding on the street, I think they're a good idea...they really save the bike from bumps and bruises in a tip-over or rash in a low speed crash. However, if you do trackdays, I wouldn't install them. In a crash at the track, the bike usually slides quite quickly into the rough trackside, and the framesliders catch, sometimes causing the bike to flip, causing more damage than would have otherwise been the case... My 2 cents...
Sweet! Ever think about reupholstering the seat in a tan-ish brown that seems all the rage with the custom builders?
What do you think about swapping out the headlights with dual lights from the Thunderbird?

Saw this for sale on CR yesterday. Not really my style but like manna from heaven for the Wolverine boot, flannel shirt & Bell 500 helmet crew. And only 3300 beans...obo
So, here's my CR750 replica street bike. Underneath it all is a 1977 CB750F2, with a little over 21,000 on the odometer. It runs, oil is fresh, tires are brand new. Needs carbs synched. Very unique bike/experience, but I have too many projects...
I've had no issues and mine sits in the rain all day fairly often. I just Lexol it.
