This. Shops don't charge based on hard or easy. The charge based on time. Most shops have a minimum of 1 or charge. The fact that they're willing to go down to a half hour is nice.

My very close freind has a 2009 ZX-10, on his way to the Kawasaki's ticket to ride someone cut him off on 290 and he went down doing 70MPH and the frame slider grounded all the way down but saved his frame!! The frame and swing arm never touched the pavement all he has was damaged plastics....

For your originally question, its not hard at all...you will need a torque wrench to properly install them though. It seems that the hard part was already done by the previous owner which was drill the fairings. Now all you have to do is pull each engine mount bolt (ONE AT A TIME!!!) and install the frame sliders (ONE AT A TIME) and retorque the bolts back in

On the issue of sliders i had them on mine when it took an 85-100 mph slide down the road not a scatch on my frame or engine so i will continue to use them. my $.02
Like I said " at low speeds". Some may disagree, but under 100mph is a very moderate pace. Where frame sliders do more damage than help is in the 130mph and up ranges.

Of course I mean only at the track and roads in Mexico.
