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
  • CNC-machined mounts
  • Laser-etched Yoshimura logo Inner Sleeve
  • Includes durable mounting hardware and instructions
  • Works Edition features a hard-anodized base with superior colorfast qualities and is highly resistant to Ultraviolet rays and heat

Provides the extra protection for the plastic, Wife's Bike! :-) Look over the youtube video first and you want have any issues. Do one side at a time. I spent more time looking up the torque spec's in the service manual. Left main bolt is 32ft-lb, Right Main is 36ft-lb, secondary rights are 22ft-lb. Alternator Cover Bolts torqued to 87in-lb, this took forever to figure out, page 535 of the service manual. November 26, 2014
This product does what is intended to. Although, this product is very expensive, it is worth the purchase. I went down about a month ago and the sliders did what they were suppose to do. Without the slider, my fairing would be completely damaged. November 12, 2014
Great product but directions for installation could be easier Overall I am very pleased with these frame sliders. They shipped really fast. The instructions are pretty useless especially on the right side as the pictures are in black & white. I've attached pictures of the bracket installed on the right side so hopefully it will help someone else. August 28, 2014
Solid and easy to install This was the first time I've installed frame sliders. The included instructions for my MC were easy to read and follow. The frame sliders are solid and great looking. August 18, 2014
great when fisnished, not easy install The kit comes with all the parts needed but the instructions that yoshimura provides for installation are not very helpful. There are some useful guides with pictures on kawiforums and youtube though. August 4, 2014
not easy to install, but well worth it The Yoshi frame sliders are pricey, and the design is a bit overly complex. The product is very high quality, and the fit and finish are excellent. Once installed, they work great--my bike has gone down once when I slipped on an oil patch, with no damage to the fairing and only a few scratches on the slider. No cutting of the fairings was required. The installation instructions provided by Yoshimura are mediocre, but with a little ingenuity one can find plenty of pics and videos online for extra assistance. An additional suggestion is to make sure all of the bolts (i.e. not just the main ones) are tightened to the appropriate (and quite varied) torque specs. I suspect a number of the install and/or durability issues that have arisen for other reviewers did so because of insufficient or over-tightening. July 28, 2014
Good product with horrible instructions The product seems of high quality, but I luckily haven't tested them in a crash. They do however come with terrible instructions with only two blurry black and white photos. Yoshimura really needs to do a much better job of instructions. In an ideal world they'd even do a video of the install. Overall took about 3 hours to install. July 21, 2014
I was surprised and not in a good way... When I got to the right side (which was a breeze when compared to the left), I was absolutely shocked to see that Yoshimura expects you to replace the extremely well engineered, steel Kawasaki engine mount with their own aluminum piece. I was confused at first, because I wasn't expecting to swap that mount. Nowhere does it state that this is what they want you to do. Furthermore, this was not the case on the left hand side, in that they just replaced some bolts that were holding a cover in place. ----- Installation: Left Side: the left side involved the engine mounting bolt and two screws from a part of the engine cover. Easy. Right Side: the right side involved the engine mounting bolt, two bolts that hold the mount to the frame, and a replacement engine mount as well as a replacement fairing mount. This is where things got tricky for me. You are to place the bracket and replacement fairing mount behind the frame mount. Fairing removal: 3 large plastic rivets that are under the bike. 5 (on both sides) small plastic rivets located behind the fairing and under the front of the bike. 3 (on both sides) black screws that hold the fairings on up top. Yes. Even the screws under the windscreen by the instrument cluster. Once you've removed all the parts that hold the fairings in place, they slide back and drop down, which allows you to unplug the built in blinkers. To remove the small plastic rivets, simply push in the middle part. This will allow you to pull the rivet out. When you go to replace the rivet, pull the plastic inner piece out, beyond flush, put the rivet in and then push the middle piece to flush with the rest of the rivet. To remove the large plastic rivets on the belly, pull the tab out carefully and then pull the entire rivet out. To replace them, simple insert the rivet and then push the middle piece in flush to lock the rivet in place. ----- Protection: Left Side: I believe the left side will hold up well in an accident. There is a lot of reinforcement and space for the mount to bend, if need be. However, there may be the potential of damaging the engine cover mounting holes. Right Side: I believe that the removal of the Kawasaki engine mount is a terrible idea, because the stock one is excellently engineered. In addition, in the event of an accident, I can see this mount bending and severely damaging the engine. The rear of the frame slider sits in a spot that would impact the engine. ----- TL;DR Overall I would NOT recommend this product. I just can't get over the fact that they me to replace that engine mount on the right side. I like what they did on the left side, but hate what they did on the right. I just can't see that piece of aluminum holding up nearly as well as the stock steel piece. June 27, 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

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

Stephan S: Hi Conrad,

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.

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.

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
