Be careful with these. These are not designed for the standard tip over, only for a “low speed low side such as those at the track”. I had the bike fall on its right side in the driveway and it dented the engine block causing it to leak oil from the valve cover gasket. Bike is totaled. Customer service was non existent.

I put these sliders on and 3 months later one of mounting brackets is cracked and more slider is just dangling there not doing anything. Cheap material. Should of been steel frame, or given the correct bolts to secure it properly. Or even some directions would of been nice.
I dropped my bike this morning and wasnt hurt at all. Thanks to these sliders I saved almost my entire cowling plus my leg. I consider that a successful disadvantage. I would definitely recommend these sliders.
I was unable to figure out how to put these things on. I am very mechanically inclined and rarely am stumped by things like this. But these sliders came with no real instructions. I am very dissatisfied.
These are racing sliders. It might not spell it out on the site, but they are made for hitting the ground at speed. They may shatter in a low speed drop, so this might not be what you're looking for. Install is quick and easy, depending on how accessible/stuck your engine mounting bolts are (one of mine was a real bear!)
Definitely a product you never want to actually "use" but the Sato products are clearly top-shelf. Having a 2011 RC8R I had to mount the sliders in reverse from what the directions stated as there were changes on the bike from 2010 to 2011. Installation was easy and the fit and finish is outstanding.
There have been no questions asked about the Sato Racing No Mod Frame Sliders.
