Frame sliders are a must for any bike, any rider experienced or new. Saved my bacon a few times. Yamaha has some factory ones that look nice, but I suggest the puck style, also axle sliders are not a bad edition for added protectionWhere to get,
What to get,
Will you want them on an R3?

I will have to weight my options a little those factory sliders Im sure are expensive. I will go to the dealer in the next month or so and Im sure they will have a R3 with those installed. The R&G sliders look good but I would rather perfer Woodcraft sliders for my R3 do to the ease of replacement in case of a crash.Maybe, but it depends on whether the existing length is just long enough to protect the more expensive bits on the bike or not.
These are the Yamaha OEM protectors, and it appears in the pic that they don't stick out very far:

I'm a tall person, and looking at the position,
Do you think they can be in the way of my shinbone?
We are awaiting the delivery of our R3, the products should be available shortly after. We just have to verify fitment for ourselves and then get the products in house.Still says coming soon... what kind of timeline are we looking at??
