I've done a little research on this topic, but would like to hear what the more experience riders have to say.
While I've read that frame sliders are meant primarily to protect the frame of the bike itself and not the fairings, most people seem conclude that it does help protect the fairings at low speed drops that most beginner riders are prone to. However I've read that in some cases frame sliders can cause more damage to the bike in higher speed crashes. I've also read that the placement of frame sliders are important. Unfortunately, on the Ninja 250r, the fairing leaves very little mounting points for frame sliders. I'm looking at getting Intuitive Racing frame sliders for my bike, I'll try to find some pictures of the installed sliders to show the mounting point later as I'm not sure if their mounting point is optimal. So what are your opinions on frame sliders? Are they a worthwhile investment for beginner riders?
