Here's an update and walk around of all the mods. hope you all enjoy.

2013 Kawasaki Ninja 650 Mods Yoshimura fender and frame sliders - YouTube


shot is a little blurry, but overall, im really happy with the results. ill probably just do pazzo levers, frame sliders, and maybe a seat cowl. for now anyway. gonna try to keep it minimal and reversible.

i just use a backpack when i need to carry anything, but the majority of my riding is pleasure (as opposed to commuting or errands) on the weekends. im lucky enough to work 3 miles from my house, so i rarely fill up my car anyway.

i always figured there was a place on the frame for them to screw into, but i was giving mine a look yesterday and couldnt figure out how exactly they attach. do they just use brackets?

Looks good man! I like the windscreen, is it tinted or painted or plastidipped? Need to get on mine, it's still completely, 100% stock haha. Gonna keep mostly stock at least until I pass my final road test next summer, last thing I want is the examiner telling me there's something illegal on the bike and I can't take the exam!!

thanks! yeah true, might wanna wait until you do that. not sure how it works up there. i was planning to get the zero gravity dark smoke SR (stock replacement) screen for $80 off ninja650shop, but i thought i would give the plastidip a shot after seeing how easily it comes off. eventually, i will probably buy the screen and peel this off to have a stock screen - but it works for now, and looks pretty good. guess for $5 you really cant go wrong.. especially when youre not using actual paint. normally i stay away from cheap DIY projects, but in this case i dont see any harm in it.

I got the R&G ones. I just checked out the Yoshis at STG, and theyre priced similarly to the R&G...and they install in the same place. Probably very similar..

The other main nocut sliders for the 2012/13s are the R&G ones, and theyre similarly priced. The fact that they are no cuts for these model years means theyll have limited sales on them, and they required a special design... so yea, theyre a little more than cut sliders. However theyre much less expensive than the no cuts for the gen II model year ninjas, which are $100 more!

...yeah I'll be waiting a little while before throwing down $180.00 for frame sliders lol. First I want to get a better helmet, jacket and get some good pants for riding, then retrofits, then I'll look into these lol. I won't be riding this winter anyways so I got time to save up haha.

The R&G nocuts at ninja650shop.com are $153. Dont be like me and wait til you drop the bike before getting them! I wish I had the foresight to install them BEFORE I dropped mine, but hey, better late than never, I guess!!
