How to install Frame slider (MT219-056)?

Has anyone successfully installed
this frame slider(MT219-056) this frame slider(MT219-056)
on Ninja 650? It came with no instruction, and so far could not find any postings on the web. I think I finally found the Chinese manufacturer (http://www.nbxinghe.com) and sent them e-mail, but not much help so far.
Thanks

Don't worry frame sliders are easy to install. ..first you bolt on the that long black part on to your bike where the engine bolts(replace the original ones with the ones provided) are next you use the spacers and then finally bolt on the frame sliders on to the now L shape looking thing...

I wanted to put it in better words but just couldn't find it...anyway if you have doubts feel free to ask...

Btw why are you getting these Chinese crap? Don't you want the bike to be safe in an incident?

Thanks for the suggestion, but that did not work. The engine bolts are bigger than the supplied bolt. If there are any other suggestions, please let me know. I tried many different ways, but just cannot figure out how they go on. Thanks.

what year is your ninja? there can't be an all-inclusive frame slider kit to incorporate the years 2009-2012. it can be 2009-2011, or 2012-2013. different chassis/engine mounting points when they redesigned for 2012.

I bet you alredy checked that, but from the link you provided it looks that one of the plates have only one mounting hole (or at least I can not see the second one), but it have a step down machined on a specific angle that will most likelly jam against the frame.
If I was in your situation I would try to find a spot that this one can fit first and then the other side would be easier to locate.

1989-1994 -> 1969 Balkan M50
1994-2001 -> 1989 MZ ETZ 251e
2001-2013 -> bikeless
2013- ....... -> 2009 Ninja 650R

if you have a '12-'13, there are only 3 bolts on each side that you can work with that attach the chassis to the engine. 2 side-by-side, and one below it. if all 3 bolts are too big, you can possibly make it work with a little ingenuity - but i would just sent it back to amazon and get a refund. like aditmaxpayne mentioned above, you don't want to trust cheap chinese crap if you drop your bike. i can vouch for Puig frame sliders (as far as the install goes) - fits perfectly, with great instructions. it's more expensive, yes, but a small investment vs. wrecked fairings.

Don't use these frame sliders. After a 20 mph down in grass it is bent. How will it hold up on pavement. Get one that goes straight in with no bends.

mlovw,

Yes, the age old question....... where do I find the right parts for the great look, practicality and ease of installation........ Well, oddly enough, Kawasaki Corporation in Europe!

Yes, Don't ask me why, but fortunately, I date a Kawasaki regional manager. When she told me that Kawasaki made frame sliders for the 2012-2013 Ninja 650R I almost smacked her!

They are the premier Slider for Europe's E6-FN? Not sure I got that right.... But, the install was stupidly simple, my 14 y.o. son did most of the work, they match the bike perfectly and you could probably slide the bike for 1000 yards before they would wear down.

Don't believe me, I'll attach the pics. Yes, I am one of those goof balls that say: "Hey, someone else may be interested, I better take some pictures"

Enjoy.

Bradmeister........opps, insert the URL???? What? your kidding me right, I have to upload from a server to a server? Not from my own computer? uggggg..Admin, Oh Admin????/.
