Fit perfectly on my 2007 yamaha r6. Unfortunately my last track day I put them to the test. Took a low side spill at 70 mph and they really did save the left side of my bike. The held the bike off the ground,didnt even break a foot peg or shifter I was able to ride the bike off the track without a problem... Needless to say I ordered another set the next day to replace the old road rashed slider. I would definitely recommend these sliders to friends (or anyone who asked . You never think it's going to happen to you but being prepared saved me hundreds of dollars in factory replacement plastic and engine cover.
Shogun Motorsports 3 Piece No Cut Slider Kit

Shogun sliders are superior to other slider brands by virtue of their construction and material. Shogun pucks, bar ends and spools are made of shatter-proof UHMW infused with UV-protective polymer. Each slider has a press-fit aluminum bushing (excluding bar ends) to hold it in place during impact to reduce the risk of the slider puck or spool tearing off of the mounting point. Shogun sliders absorb kinetic energy from crashes and will not fade in the sun nor shatter in cold temperature like some types of Delrin.
- Complete (3 Piece) Kits are a convenient all-in-one package and include matching Shogun Frame, Bar End, and Swingarm Sliders (Spools).
- Frame sliders are the most cost effective way to provide vital protection to your frame, motor, engine cases, and in some instances, bodywork, in the event of a crash.
- Each frame slider is manufactured from a proprietary blend of composite materials to maximize the absorption of kinetic energy and minimize friction.
- Shogun Frame Slider use the latest CAD/CAM technology and are specifically designed for each model to ensure the best fitment and highest level of protection.
- UV-resistant frame slider material, corrosion-resistant bolts, and high quality material selection keep parts looking new for thousands of miles and are proudly manufactured in the U.S.A.
- Tested by AMA Pros, track day junkies, and weekend warriors for over a decade, Shogun Frame Sliders have a proven track record.
- Replacement parts available and sold separately.
- Sold as a kit.
Shogun frame slider offsets are CNC machined from the same grade aluminum as military aircraft. Offsets are anodized black to match O.E.M. components. Each offset is manufactured to stringent specifications with ISO 9000 quality control. Each Shogun Frame Slider comes with high tensile strength corrosion resistant hardware (cheap imitators do not use high-grade hardware and will quickly rust). Shogun uses socket head bolts in nearly every kit, allowing for stronger frame slider design in a more compact space. Newer applications of Shogun Frame Sliders make use of a countersunk design, which distributes the force of impact over a wider area and gives additional strength to the system so that the puck remains attached to the motorcycle.
Thankfully I haven't had the chance to test these bad boys in a real life situation yet, so I can't comment on how they hold up in an actually crash situation. However, they do feel like a very high quality product that would hold up when I (hopefully not) need them. The bar end sliders were a mild pain to install as I needed to use an impact driver to break the screws loose from the lock tight. I ended up stripping one screw and have to drill it out to get it off, but nothing too difficult.
The only reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is the lack of instructions for installation. Also, they are 'no cut' sliders, but on my bike (2012 Ninja 250r) the drive sprocket cover has to have a notch cut out to fit over the mounting bar. There are no directions for installation that come in the box. Apparently you have to go to the Shogun website and download the instruction for your motorcycle. They weren't complicated to follow (I am a mechanic), but they seemed to be on the vague side, not very detailed for the average person. There seemed to be a handful of 'how to' videos on YouTube for reference as well.
Overall great product. They look good and are high quality. I definitely recommend.
easy install and look great, well worth the money
The Shogun No-Cut Crash Kit for 2009+ Yamaha R1's includes 4 pieces: Bar End Sliders, Frame Sliders, Crank/ Oil Case Guards, and Swing Arm Spools. The kit comes in a small box with a part number, which requires you to log on to www.shogun.com to download install instructions. The dealer I bought my bike from installed it for me while we were signing papers, and it was done in about 30-45 minutes... *** Observations: The frame sliders are actually cone-shaped and not cylinder shaped as published on Motosport.com's web site. This is a minor detail, but thought I should point it out. But, they still look very sleek and compliment the lines of the R1 nicely. My only gripe is that the kit lacks padding inside the packaging. And, one of my frame sliders actually had a few hairline scratches that are definitely noticeable, but not too bad. I have no way of knowing if the scratch was the manufacturer's fault, or if this box had been opened by Motorsport and scratched, because the box is not sealed... But, all-in-all a great looking kit, and I hope that I never have to find out if they work or not.
Bought these for my ZX6R, fit was great installation took less than an hour, reason for the 4 Stars? No instructions, had to go to the shogun site and download a pdf!
The product got here with no problem.
I have to admit I was irritated that no instructions were enclosed with the product (even from Shogun).
So I called the customer service agent and they helped me when I asked questions about the install. Plus utube helped. After several hours, we finally got a special tool to get the motor mount bolt out to install these.
The product is finally installed and looks great!
