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.

Saved My Bike
Im a beginner and all my friends who have been riding 10+ yrs made me invest in theae. Im so glad they did i dropped my bike avoiding an car and these prevented my bike from sliding and it saved my fairings i have a few scratches but i have to repalce my rear view mirror. I put durability as fair because i have to buy a new pair of sliders because they are bent out of shape after only one drop. Overall great product

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.

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.

Solid Product to Protect Your 650R
The install was fairly simple, but taking the fairings off can be tricky. They look great and work well. My bike was knocked over in a parking lot and the slider took the entire impact. A had a few scratches on my bar end and on the slider and that was it. Definitely worth the investment.

Good
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.

Held Up Slightly in a Minor Crash
I had a low speed incident where I was thrown off my bike and the bike went sliding across the highway. The frame sliders took majority of the damage, however, the bolt mount (the chrome finished bracket) was not strong enough to keep the frame slider from bending it when it slid, snapping the frame slider and skidding the fairings across the highway. Now it still did its job by keeping the damage minimal, which I am happy that I won't have to replace a bunch of items. But I think they could improve on the bracket. I was going less than 30mph, hit a pothole while breaking hard and went off the side of my bike, shouldn't of snapped in my opinion. I'll post some images when I have time.

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.

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.

Purchased these in the event that I should ever lay down my machine. Looks good and relatively easy to install. Provides a bit more peace of mind in regards to riding that my beast won't get too torn up should I drop it.

Do these fit a 2015 ninja 650?
Alex K on Apr 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I do not see why not... I have them on my 2013 and I believe the fairings and engine has not changed since then. They are great. I went down on a highway on ramp going 25mph and the slider saved my fairings.
Hi I am buying a 2011 ninja 650rl here in australia will these fit with no cutting?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I don't know why revzilla is asking me to answer this question... I own a 2012 model not a 2011 it fits perfectly on a 2012 but no clue about the 2011
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!
slipangel on Mar 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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?
Conrad R on Jan 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Works Edition with Black is not same p/n right? what's the p/n?
A shopper on Sep 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Not sure what your question is. The part listed on the review is the exact kit I used on the Ninja 650R. I didn't need to exchange or add anything.
Will this fit a 2016 ninja 650 abs?
