I won't drill on the bike either. My FZ07 also doesn't have holes in the swing arm for sliders. Probably saves Yamaha $3 per model.

It would be nice if those slider pucks extended outward a little further.
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:



And these are the R&G sliders, which seem a bit longer, but not by much.:

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.

I only saw the frame sliders.
I'm a tall person, and looking at the position,
Do you think they can be in the way of my shinbone?
The photos are just mock-ups for advertising purposes. The real units should have more than enough clearance for your shins. (Or anyone else's for that matter)

Still says coming soon... what kind of timeline are we looking at??
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.

If drilling is required, I hope a regular drill in the fairings will do.
And there will be clear instructions.
Not so looking forward to drilling in the frame, or tapping a mountingpoint in the metal...
