It depends on what kind of conditions you have. They will hold up well in marginal snow as long as it's just snow. Throw in a little sand like we get in Michigan and they're a waste of money. The sand will eat the teflon faster than the plastic. A few years ago I had a set on my sled. We were up in Michigan and there was some sand mixed in with the snow because the ground never got a good freeze before the first snowfall. The first day I made a 140 mile round trip and my hyperfax sliders were toast., I figure that was a bout $1 a mile. I'd say save your money.
I will second what Wink says. I had a pair on a 96 F3 and rode in "sandy" snow and the Hiperfax were ruined. My buddy's regular hyfax were in better shape and cost much less to replace. No more for this guy.
The riding conditions here in lower MI. is usually a combo
of snow and dirt or more comonly called "Snirt"! That stuff
is soo gritty that it eats slides.
Bill - any problems with the graphite sliders??? Heard some
talk of them being hard on track clips. Any unusual wear on
any of your machines that you've noticed due to the graphite
sliders? Do you recommend them over stock or the grooved
hyfax? Do you "set" your graphite slides or shave them?
