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.

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
Great product I bought these frame sliders for my Ninja 650R which happens to be my very first bike. One thing I didn't know is that you have to disassemble the body in order to install these. The body panels are VERY delicate and those push pins were not so easy to take off so be careful removing them. Also, there are these two pieces that go one on each side of the bike. The fitment is so precise it is very tight. I almost thought it was a manufacturer error. Next, the instructions were vague as I'm not very mechanically inclined I wish it would have given detailed instructions on removing the body panels. That, I would have to say was the biggest issue/disappointment for me. I expected better since I've heard about the Yoshimura brand long ago even before getting my first bike. Lastly, once installed they looked beautiful on my bike and even improved the look aesthetically on my motorcycle. Soon after installing them I fell off my bike doing a tight u-turn and they saved my bike from getting scratched up so I am pleased they saved my bike from getting scratched up. I would like to add I wish they sold the rubber sliders separately just for people like me who've dropped their bike and the sliders got messed up so we do not have to buy the whole kit over again. I'm not saying mine were ruined but you can definitely tell as the writing is no longer readable. I think in a high speed crash these would have been done for sure. Overall I recommend these as they improve the look of the bike and they did what they were designed to do which is- protect the motor and the body. I just wish they printed more detailed instructions on removing the body panels and they sold replacement rubber sliders separately as well. June 8, 2014
High quality protection Just what I was looking for. Sleek design that fits perfectly the lines of the bike. June 24, 2014
Easy install Bought these for my 2013 Ninja 650 and I am very satisfied. if you have the mechanical skill to take your fairings off you can install these sliders. I did in about 20 minuites. (my fairing were already off from doing other mods) No instructions just a blown up view but easy enough to figure out $180 is a little much for a couple hunks of metal but they are quality and saving even more and a busted up bike is worth it.

Yoshi sliders for ninja 300 If you dont mind cutting into your fairings these are the sliders for you. Extremely well made and durable. They look great once installed. I hope i never have to experience how they hold up during a lowside fall, but I'm sure they'll protect your bike. Yoshimura is known for quality products. I have no doubt the sliders will do their job. June 16, 2014
Overall a nice product. I ordered these for my GF's 2013 ninja 650. Overall this is an awesome kit. However, if you are a less than a mechanical person you may have some difficulty. THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE HORRIBLE. The step by step process is lacking in description, and the photos are so small they are hard to see. The instructions state to attach the brackets and sliders, then reinstall the fairing. Um, let see, the fairing won't go on over the sliders. Also the instructions do not state where the right side fairing bracket is installed, behind or in front of the existing bracket. It goes behind the existing bracket. Cmon Yosh, put some effort into your instructions. April 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)?

-thanks!

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
