Does anyone know if after market frame sliders are available yet? as I don't fancy paying AU$337 for the Kawasaki set
Steelhand, I probably did as you have already done, as in searching the internet for any sellers of the frame sliders other than Kawasaki. There is a seller on ebay that has them for more than you stated. I did pull off some images from Kawasaki.com of them and one image installed on the bike. They are offset design and show to only fit the 400 model.Does anyone know if after market frame sliders are available yet? as I don't fancy paying AU$337 for the Kawasaki set
See here for more info on install and fitment:I, too, would appreciate more info on frame sliders for the Ninja 400. It's the first mod I'd want to do on the bike. Protection and safety come first.
I'm also interested in Shogun, as Revzilla puts their frame sliders as topselling/featured. They have a contact form on their site, I think I'll reach out to them.I have my eyes on Shogun for sliders, although there's no information out right now on when it will come to market. I like what they did to the Ninja 300.
I called Shogun because I had a question on the installation instructions that are currently posted on their website. I found out that the installation instructions should not have been posted and once the frame sliders are ready for shipping, the correct instructions will be included.Finally, some sensibly priced no cuts
The Shogun website states the sliders are USA made so hopefully that means good quality. They also appear to be no cut but I plan to confirm before I order.I'd be curious what the quality of these parts are once someone gets their hands on them but my guess is they are well made since Shogun makes good stuff. Once these are out I don't think it makes much sense to buy the $270 Kawi ones unless you are really sold on the look.
For the record, the Kawi ones do not require any cutting of the bodywork.
I like the look of the T-Rex and it should be similar to the one available for the Ninja 650. Do you know if they plan to develop/manufacturer one for the Ninja 400 any time soon?I'm curious to see what T-Rex comes up with. Usually they make an entire combo kit frame sliders for overall protection, and their main frame slider is oval shaped as opposed to the standard cylindrical bar shape.
I've emailed them and they replied asking for my address so when I find out the shipping cost to Western Australia I'll let you guys know so the other AUS/NZ region members will have a rough idea of the cost to themThe owner was very friendly, helpful, and a wealth of knowledge. I definitely plan to check their website and order next week. If it's not up by Wed, I'll give them another call to get an update.
I e-mailed them a few days ago and they said yes they will make them for the bike when they get their hands on one.I like the look of the T-Rex and it should be similar to the one available for the Ninja 650. Do you know if they plan to develop/manufacturer one for the Ninja 400 any time soon?
