Yoshimura Chassis Protector Kit Kawasaki Ninja 650 R
Yoshimura Chassis Protectors help minimize damage from sliding type falls, can save you hundreds of dollars in repairs, and maybe keep you from getting a DNF on race day. The plastic construction is soft enough to slow slides and wear down slowly... yet tough enough to keep the track away from your bike in most cases.
Sold as a Pair
Laser-etched Yoshimura logo Inner Sleeve
Includes durable mounting hardware and instructions

Look great, work great
They look really good on the bike. I lowsided at about 20-25mph and the sliders saved my fairings for the most part... I had some small scratches I buffed out and then it was like nothing happened. The slider itself had shaved down about a quarter of it so I had to replace the right side (part# by part# thru Yoshimura since I couldn't find individual parts anywhere)

I have had these installed on my 2013 Ninja 650 for about 10 months. I have never had to use them. They look good and gave me peace of mind.
I just found the bolt on one side snapped and the puck fell who-knows-where. I imagine that it snapped due to stress: I recently started riding my bike more and have been going on the canyons and splitting lanes to work.
Yoshimura's website doesn't list replacement parts on their website. I think I have to call them, but I hear that their prices are way over-priced.

These frame sliders were easy to install considering that I am a n00b working on motorcycles. The only really hard part was that the fairing removal and re-install. The actual install of the frame sliders was pretty simple.
Word of caution though, DO NOT remove both engine mounts or you're gonna have a bad time. Also the second photo on the install instructions for the right side is not a 2012-14 Ninja 650. I had to figure out how the mounts were installed. Apply some loctite also when installing them so they don't come loose while riding. Last thing is that make sure you have some large (10mm) allen wrenche set or you will be stuck waiting for your friend to get to your place so you can finish the job.
Can't say I can review the performance and durability on these as I hope to never test them.

Good solid construction but a bit pricey
The frame sliders were easy to install once I got the stuck engine mounting bolts out. The frame sliders appear to be very solid and constructed fairly well. I just think the price point could be a little lower. I would like to know if there are replacement tips so you don't have to buy the whole set again in the event of a fall.

The product was easy to install and it looks good. Hopefully I wont have to try them out.

Nice no-cut sliders
Very nice no-cut sliders for my Ninja 650. Went on with ease and seem quite sturdy but here's hoping I never really test their quality.

Conrad R asked:I just bought this set of frame sliders for my 2012 Ninja 650 and I noticed you have to remove the left engine bracket to install on that side. It doesn't appear that the bracket is replaced with anything so the engine is not connected to the frame on that side of the bike. Is it supposed to be that way with one less engine support on the left side of the bike?Jan 4, 2014
I installed the Yoshimura sliders on my 2013 Ninja 650. To install the slider on the left side, you install the triangular piece Yoshimura includes with 3 fasteners. The first 2 fasteners consist of relatively small hex head bolts that replace the existing bolts connecting the left side engine cover to the engine. The third fastener consists of one large hex head bolt that goes through the existing left side fairing bracket (attached to the radiator support), then goes through the Yoshimura triangular bracket, then goes through the Yoshimura-supplied long spacer, then goes through the engine boss just under the left side cylinder. The nut screws directly to the bolt.
By the way, the new sliders are great. Fit well and look good.Jan 6, 2014
James R:Conrad, Revzilla asked me to answer this and it is an unprofessional but qualified response. The support piece provided by yoshi should utilize the frame and maintain the motor mount you then apply the provided hardware. I.e. the motor mount is maintained through the kit.Do not remove more than one motor mount at a time. Follow the directions carefully and if you unsure take it in to a qualified mechanic.
apparently I'm not allowed to link you to yoshi's instructions but go to their page and find the sliders for the ninja 650 their directions are very good.Jan 6, 2014
Conrad R:After looking at it again, it appears that the bracket may be separated into 2 pieces allowing the use of that bracket again. People posted pictures at riderforums where it did not show the bracket being reused.Jan 4, 2014
Charles K asked:After an unfortunate drop while stationary in a parking lot, I can confirm that these work very well. The slider and the edge of the right mirror took 100% of the drop.
Question: Is there any way to get a replacement slider without re-buying the whole kit? If you have to buy a whole kit, are all the sliders the same size (so that you can buy a less expensive bike's kit)?
Alejandro C:I actually had a low side slide at about 20-25 mph... These sliders did their job and saved me from a lot of expenses... I found out you could buy the pieces u need directly from Yoshimura so I ended up replacing a few pieces for the right side (caution: piecing it could get expensive but is still cheaper than a new kit)... Yoshimura was helpful and prompt.Mar 22, 2014
