This was the first piece of equipment that I installed to my 2009 FZ1. The Shogun Frame Slider was an easy install - probably took all of 5 minutes for both sides. I purchased the carbon print (black) model and it quite matches my bike. Note - there are minimal instructions but all it took was to replace the existing bolts with the supplied bolts. The Aluminum cap was a bit more difficult to put on as the screws were not self tapping and they do NOT screw in tight. I believe a snug fit was all it took. All in all, the product was an easy install and it looked great on the bike.
