Yoshimura Chassis Protector Kit Honda CBR250R 2011-2012
Excellent quality, good looks, easy to install
Although I have not had to use these for their intended purpose, the quality appears to be top notch. The installation was simple and straightforward.

Super easy, looks great.
I'm not very mechanically inclined, but the install was very easy. They not only look great, but the ease of install was awesome. You basically remove the fairings and then they bolt right up to the frame. I'm not sure how the durability will be during a drop but they seem to be very sturdy. Love it!

So far so good
I have not tested these frame sliders yet, but so far I have been pleased with the product. They look good and are easy to install.

It works really well.I have accidentally dropped it a few times and the frame sliders protected my fenders from breaking

Great frame sliders
The frame sliders look great on my bike and just knowing I have that extra protection for the bike gives me a good piece of mind. They were pretty easy to install, just took some patience to ensure they were centered correctly but was a solid fit and are very well constructed. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants that extra protection. I hope to never have to use them but I believe is a good investment for any bike.

Straightforward Install...Hope They're Never Tested!
I want to believe that this was a good deal. Judging from the way these things mount to multiple frame members, they seem to be well designed and probably sturdy. I did not rate the performance or durability, because I haven't put these frame sliders to use and I hope I never do! When I eye them up, though, as mounted on my 2013 CBR250R, it looks like they'd probably get me out of an accidental drop with nothing worse than a broken ball-end of a clutch/brake lever. Installation was easy...took 20 minutes total, which included removing and replacing the fairings, and a 5 minute delay trying to figure out the orientation of the parts. (Yoshi, if you're listening, your directions and accompanying pics are not awesome.) It's all good, though...it isn't rocket science!

I crashed. This worked perfectly.
TL;DR I crashed and these things did exactly what they were supposed to.
Today I lowsided my bike at 51MPH. The bike slid on asphalt nearly the entire way before flipping over when it ran out of road and found a grassy berm. How'd the bike hold up? See the pictures. My right handlebar was severely bent and my left mirror is now useless, but the Yoshi frame slider and my exhaust shroud were the only other things to suffer any damage. The fairings and engine are fine.
As a result, I have nothing but praise and recommendations. The most difficult part of installing these is taking off the fairings - installing them is as much of a no-brainer as the decision to buy these SHOULD be.

You get what you pay for
Overall pleased with this purchase. I've yet to "use" the sliders (drop the bike, etc.) and hope not to, so I can't attest to that. However, these sliders and frame construction seem extremely solid and well put-together. They're definitely not cheap, but when it could possibly save you $100's on repairs in the future, I'd consider it worth it.
