Yes, they are the OEM frame slider kit you can buy at a dealership (or possibly online). They do require drilling into the fairings and are relatively sturdy for its design, but I trust an aftermarket frame slider more than the OEM one; to me, the OEM is just for aesthetics, not function.
Also, depending on which aftermarket frame sliders you get (R&G Racing, Woodcraft, Womet-Tech), you will not be able to fit both the OEM sliders and the aftermarket frame sliders without modifications. Graves and Vagabond ones are designed differently and will be okay. Don't ask me how I know this, but suffice to say the OEM frame sliders on my bike are purely for aesthetics now...
Looks like the OEM/Yamaha frame slider kit, requires drilling into the fairings I'm pretty sure, subsequently, you could opt for oggy knobs or others like that.
I wish someone would make a *lightweight* Vagabond style slider, for the sole purpose of the dreaded gas station drop / stop light stop / parking lot gravel drop / etc.
True but I just want the got the looks
:laugh:I just watched someone who is a much better rider than any of us drop a lightweight bike the other day due to gravel.
Oh, but wait, his CBR1000 will not ever do that on the street.
