Yoshimura Frame Sliders Honda CB500F / CB500X 2013-2014
These frames look good but haven't dropped the bike yet to know how well they work.
Well made, super easy to install. Took me ten minutes. They make sense and look like a factory option.

I hope I never have to use these but if I do, I feel comfortable with how they would perform. They are very solid and I know they would save a lot of damage should they ever be needed.

Great purchase to ease a new riders' mind
Really happy with how these framesliders went onto my 2013 CB500F.
As previously mentioned, they took about 15 minutes to install. The hardest part was getting the engine mounting bolt off in the first place, which I eventually succeeded in doing with my foot on the socket wrench. You need a 14mm socket wrench and a 8mm allen key. I don't have a torque gun so I went to my local motorcycle dealer afterward to properly torque them to spec (no charge).
Note that in the instructions, it says "remove the right side engine mounting bolt... and install the left side chassis protector". This is incorrect; if you remove the right side engine mounting bolt, you then install the right side chassis protector. I really think Revzilla has the best price on these versus any local dealers. They came very quickly to me in Canada.. about 5 business days.
I foresee awesome bang for the buck if they are ever put to use, for your own safety (holding the bike up off your leg), and protection of the bike (fairing, exhaust, engine).

Great Frame Sliders
I purchased the Yoshi frame sliders for my wife's 2014 Honda CB500F. It literally took me 10 minutes, plus another 5 for tiding it up. The Gold extension post gives the frame sliders a sharp look. I would definitely recommend this product.

Looks good and works
Nice black easy to install. Follow instructions and followed up 2 weeks later to ensure they were still tight

Inexpensive and completely worth it
Great install-it-yourself part. Comes with useful installation guide. I highly recommend it, though decent ratchet set is necessary.

Makes the bike look soooooo good
They are super easy to install and like I said above look soo good every one says they look sick. Hopefully never have to use them but hey better safe then sorry. Just for your information you will need a 8 mm Alan key socket and a torque wrench ( also thread lock tight if accessible ) to install ( it needs to be done up to 47 foot pound )
These are not listed in the description but it is very necessary because they will screw into your engine block and if you do not tighten them up enough they will rattle loose and if you do it up to much it might strip your engine block and that will cost you big $$$$.
I hope every one like them as much as I do

Look good and hopefully do their job
I haven't tested these and I hope I never do. The install was VERY easy except for when the bolt stripped my engine mount threads don't know if It was my fault or the bolts fault but it was an easy fix
