Default Frame Sliders/ Crash Protectors

Hello! Just got my cbr600f (first bike) and I want to install crash protectors. I noticed that most of them require fairing modification. Is it worth it?

A bit like insurance, you only need it if you have an accident.

If they are installed properly, they will save a lot of fairing damage in the event of a drop, low speed or standing. But I don't think it will save the bike in the event of a high speed spill.

I have heard of Blackbirds sustaining terminal frame damage by badly installed protectors.

If she's in good condition then personally I'd install them. A simple drop of your bike can still be expensive.
In the event of coming off and her sliding down the road then yes they will help somewhat. A friend of mine slid off on a track day and I was amazed at the job they did.
Anything near major and they're just ornaments really.
Enjoy your new bike mate !

It's my first bike and in really good condition, so I was more concerned about standing and low speed drops. You were very helpful!
Thank you very much!

Has anyone managed to install crash protectors that do not require fairing modifications and where can I get these from?
