Track days means your taking your bike to a race track for some worry free aggressive riding, in most cases.

Problem your going to find is type of frame slider.

You can get the standard setup, but on 748 you will have to cut holes in the bodywork to allow the sliders to fit through to the outside.

There is also the underbody sliders that require no cutting on the body. They install just behind the side panels, invisible, but the don't protect the bodywork at all.

Those are all the options I know about for that bike, aside from wheel / fork sliders.

The "under sliders" are meant to not protect the bodywork, but instead to just protect the engine and other hard parts below the bodywork. Some people fear that with the standard type frame sliders sticking out from the bodywork that they will catch on something while the bike is sliding along the ground in a crash and cause the bike to flip and do more damage. I have only used my Cycle Cat frame sliders at the track and they have protected the bike by keeping it off the ground and did not catch on anything; maybe on the street a different story...don't know.

The Cycle Cat frame sliders - and any others that install at the forward engine mount - will require replacing the battery with a smaller size model as well since they encroach on the battery box. The downside to this is less battery power from a smaller battery (unless you buy a new lithium-type) and potentially harder starts. I use my bike exclusively on the track and have both the Cycle Cat frame sliders (with holes cut in the fairing and smaller size battery) and sliders for the front axle. Again, in a fall-over situation in a parking lot the axle sliders probably wouldn't help.
