Exactly my thought process! Why buy ANOTHER helmet when you already have one and if you drop the bike even in a parking lot those fairings are gonna cost a lot more than a new helmet. It's better to be prepared for the worst in my mind.

and I don't really see the point in going cheap on frame sliders when you're paying well over $7,000 for a brand new ninja 650. I mean If I had bought a used cheap bike I wouldn't put frame sliders on it but I'm not made of money and that much money for a bike to me is a big deal. I try to take care of my stuff and make sure it's going to last and not look like crap.

^That's a fine point and I agree, but since my bike is stored for the next 4-5 months, I'm not worried about frame sliders. I'll buy em in the spring. Rather new, proper gear first (at least good pants and jacket) because my personal safety is top priority.

Actually it's a matter of their quality. Two Brothers quality is sub par. Their shit has a tendency to fall apart. I want to say Two Brothers also suggests repacking the exhaust every 3,000 miles, which is ridiculous.

But if you want your bike potentially catching fire or your exhaust falling apart, then yeah Two Brothers are awesome.

However theyre much less expensive than the no cuts for the gen II model year ninjas, which are $100 more!

Don't get no cut sliders. Just do yourself a favor and cut the hole in the fairing. No cut frame sliders don't even provide half the protection of the cut sliders

That was the first thing I noticed, and I used them as tie points for the seat bag as I don't seem to have them on the fender like yours does even though it states it in the manual.
