So if you destroy every fairing on the left and right side of the bike the cost will be very close to that of the cost of frame sliders but if you drop the bike or crash the bike so that both sides of the bike are completely damaged you shouldn't be riding.

What i'm trying to say is that when my bike dropped when i thought it was on it's side stand and hopped off and the bike fell over, i will need to replace the 2 silver side pieces on my 2012 red/silver cbr. It will cost close to $25 but if i bought sliders the sliders would be damaged and if i go to sell the bike people will know it would have been dropped, and if i take the sliders off then i have wasted $160, but instead i can pay $25 for new fairings an no one would know the bike was dropped

also with sliders you can risk frame damage, and the bike can flip if it mounts the kerb etc. read online there are stories of the sliders doing unexpected things like that and also sliders look ugly imo

Are you including the costs of paint and labor? Unless you're a trained professional and plan on doing it yourself, it's not cheap. I have neither the time nor the experience to get paint to match and do the job myself.

2012 CBR250RA all black w/ ABS, blackened muffler heat guard, P3 brake flashers TS+.
Green: reflective rim decals, LED lighting, custom "to punish and enslave..." lettering.

Riding gear: Icon Contra Mil-Spec Hi-Viz & HJC CL-16 helmet

Planned: Demon/Angel Eye 50-55W HID projector.

OEM Honda body parts are supplied painted, and with decals... ready to bolt on.

My list (none of which I will be getting due to the new TV in front of me):
HID headlight, installed (no way would I have the patience to get it set up right!)
saddlebags
New exhaust - I haven't done the research, so I can't say which would best meet my needs
Winter coat
heated gloves
and yes, my own personal track would be great

like MotoMike said they come with the paint and are ready to put on. You don't need a professional either, you simply pull the fairing off and put the new one on - for my 2 pieces it should take about 5-10 minutes to do

So yes it is very cheap and easy to do

But you only need to replace the pucks on the end of the frame sliders if they are damaged, not the whole assembly. And probably only one.

Why do people go streetfighter? (before it was cool?). Because plastic is expensive.

OEM Plastic is very expensive on 600 SuperSports, and Liter bikes... not so much on the CBR250R.
