I bought these for my fiancé’s bike. Pulled the engine mount bolt out. When to put the supplied bolt in and turned hard right away. Knew it wasn’t right. Compared the threads and the supplied bolt had the wrong pitch. Not going to trust products that don’t have the proper hardware. The sliders all looked decent for the price, but if you can’t install them, they’re useless. I’m not about to go buy the bolts from Fastenal. And I hate waiting for the company to send the proper parts and hoping they’re right that time.

Thankful that I haven't had to test these out .....but added piece of mind knowing they are there if I need them....installation was a breeze and good fit
Install was fast and painless, bolted right on, no modifying needed
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.
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.
