Yoshimura Frame Sliders Kawasaki ZX6R/ZX636 2013-2016
NEVER BUY ANY FRAME SLIDERS
I ADVISE DO NOT BOLT THESE TO YOUR FRAME or any other frame slider.
They saved most of the left side fairing, scratches on the lower fairing, bent gear shift lever and broken rear left passenger fairing.
BUT the frame slider bent ridiculously on a small 40 kmph rear tire spin out and caused a chip at the bolt mounting on the frame, no mechanical damage but cannot guarantee if the damage could get worse in ears to come.
I would never ever buy any frame sliders, its alot more cost effective to replace fairings then damage to the engine frame. Hope insurance pays it or i will live with a not 100% frame.
by the way cost for frame replacement if over $3000 CAD.
Thank you for the headache Yoshimura

It looks awesome
Was easy to put on instructions were clear, looks really good. As almost as if it was a part of the bike. Another benefit besides the protection they make great foot rests on long rides bahahaha.

This product could have been a disaster
Installation was Supra easy
Product finish is Impecable
Durability? what durability? Ive ended last season by droping my bike at 10ish km hour...the frame slider did save the left side of my bike....i picked it back up and rode away...sure the rubber part was destroyed but other then that everything looked fine except a couple of scratch here and there....Spring just got here...took out the bike from my heated storage this morning, rode to my friend's place...look at the bike everything was fine....then rode 15 min farther...the freaking bolt from the yosh frame slider kit snaped...sooo i lost the kit AND was 20ish min away from my place with no engine support bolt on my left side . The bolt broke clean off in the engine...made in china yoshimura bolt or something? wth

A must have!
Installed these awhile back and they look great. I especially like the wording on the outside. Gives it a nice touch.
I recently had put these to use. Didn't quite "drop" my bike, more like "laid" it down. These definitely helped protect the fairings with minimal damage to the sliders. Exhaust took some scratches though.

Their frame sliders ....
Very well constructed frame sliders. Extremely easy install. It took me less than 10 minutes, seriously. I gave it 4 stars based on finish and durability for the following reasons. 1) I really don't like the look of ANY frame sliders. They stick out of the bike and take away from the bike. However, Yoshimura made the frame sliders for the ZX-6R as nice as they can. The gold spacers are nice because it matches my front forks and the sliders are black. They are as nice looking as they can get for what they are. 2) I gave it 4 stars for durability because I didn't go down and have them tested lol. The thing that concerns me is if I do go down and the bolt snaps off, its bolted right into the engine mount and could be a nightmare to replace. Hopefully I never have to encounter that. Overall, I think it's a great purchase. You can never go wrong when trying to protect yourself or your investment. Ride safe everyone!!

Good looking sliders
I bought these sliders for my 2013 ZX6R, though I can't comment on if they work yet. They were very easy to install and look good on the bike.

great style, easy to install
I had these on my 2012 ninja 650 and the install was a pain. The install on my new 2013 Ninja 636 took literally 10 minutes. Take engine bolts out, insert skider! So easy and they look great. Yoshimura for the win! Although I havent tested these, I am sure they would protect my plastics if I tip it over
