Default Are all sliders the same?

I want to purchase frame & swingarm sliders for my bike, will any brand work?

Nope. Different types are different lengths and have different mounting methods; some also have offsets because the frame isn't inline with the bodywork. A slider will protect your bodywork in a low-speed spill, but at 25 mph or higher (or if the slider catches a curb or other obstruction), a bolt mounted slider may ruin your frame.
