I was thinking about getting sliders for the tail end but when i slid out last summer, my pipes and the top of the rear (beside the passenger seat) are what got scratched. So, i was wondering whether it would be possible to get or create a set of sliders that would fit onto the sides of the tail, right below the passenger seat? Obiously drilling through the fairing would be necessary but it would be worth it. Even attaching some oval knee slider shapped sliders back there would help lots.
I'm not sure if how sturdy the frame of the bike is all the way back there but i'm sure you could install something like this so that your tail wouldn't touch the ground. (Your pipe will still, but that's another problem.)
