I am aware of the problem with frame sliders at high speeds with flipping the bike but as a new rider would you guys recommend them? Also any that do not require you to cut the fairings? Lastly couldn't find a video of anyone installing them so I'm not sure exactly how they are secured on and how far they actually stick out and help. Thanks guys!

Unless you low side on the salt flats, your bike is going to take a nasty tumble (most likely) at high speeds with or without frame sliders. I personally absolutely wouldn't ride without frame sliders. my R3 was without them for 3 days before they came in the mail! If you drop your bike in the garage, drive way, parking lot, etc, you potentially save yourself $100's.

I have the Shogun no cut frame sliders. You do not cut your fairings to attach these.

On my build thread you will see the frame sliders and that information!

Get them just to be safe I guess lol. I should follow my own advice.. (Have had my bike for 4 weeks now, still no sliders) :knocksonwood:

I'm really liking the look of the TST sliders, even though you gotta cut into the fairings..they look really clean.
