Frame Slider Install Kawasaki Z650

Here's an installation for the front and main frame sliders. There's a link to the products in the video, I'll post the link right below this if you're interested. Nice and easy for you to be able to do at home with ease.

I'll be doing frame sliders next. How is the overall fit and finish of the OES product?

I'm not too sure as this is someone elses video, but it does look to be pretty smooth, nice and flush, high gloss.

It's great! The guys at OES were great to work with, they even came up with a reinforced improvement to the right side slider. They also use this video on their main page now. Any questions, feel free to ask!

Wasn't aware of OES, dropped by and see they carry a good range of sliders.

The hint of green they included in their logo is exactly the sort of detail I like...



But being a Kawi accessories brand... that is expected.

I will second that! I guess the only thing left to do is order and eval myself.

It's quality stuff and matches up nicely with the bike.

My $.02.... Easy install. Great fit and finish. Well thought out for protections spots. Overall 4/5 stars. BUT.......

Somehow this happened. It sort of looks like a scrape but that's just not possible (I've got skills but nobody's that good). On closer examination it's burned/melted. I'm guessing it was hot exhaust at speed, so maybe this isn't the right materiel for the swingarm sliders.

Dayum... okay well that's pretty upsetting to see. I would email the company just to let em' know at least and see what they say? Maybe they'll revise them and update accordingly.
