Over kill and then you cant lean the bike as much. They drag durring big leans.
You could do case covers and sliders. Drill holes in levers as breaking points incase they hit the ground and could also do the same for foot pegs. When I had my stunt bike setup with a cage, I still drilled holes so that I could continue to ride if I ever broke a lever.


Maybe you could use the powers Race rails and not look like such a tool running a full cage.

Money better spent on a track day me thinks.
I crashed my track/stunt/commuter bike in the rain on 59 and it slid down the road. I picked it up and rode it home with out a scratch on it.
The cage also helpd when you forget to put the kick stand down.

The thing people forget is that frame sliders are designed to save the frame....

Also, most all of the no-cut styles are weaker, due to the compromises in mounts and angles.

Worse of all are the ultra cheapies that attach at a fairing screw mount.

Not the plastics or the engine covers, but the expensive, titled part of the bike.

Cages were designed by stunters, for stunters.. doing 20-30 mph or less in a parking lot... not carving corners at 100.

Yea, you definitely want to look cool.

1. The rider may be more of a cruiser than a leaner
2. Would you advise Harley riders not to put all that on their bikes like footboards because it decreases the lean angle clearance?
3. I personally wouldn't put a cage on my bike. I don't have sliders or any of that . But hey, it's his bike

Yes, I would tell them not to put it on the bikes. Like those guys need any more help crashing bikes. They dont handle enough as it is.
It is his bike and i gave my opinion on the matter and even recomended a different cage he could run.

I like tiger shark cages. I think you can get more lean out of the cage before it hits and they do life time warrenties. You break/bend it they fix it.

I think Sick came out with some race rails, but for a full cage Id go with Freestyle cuz my Sick cage would beat my shins up on my stunt bike and on my street bike I had freestyle and laid it over a few times and it did a good job holding up and protecting
And they both hold up

I think FI sucks. Would not use them.
They scrape a lot more than everything else.

I heard Freestyle ingenuity has a new mini cage check it out for yourself at ficages.com The reason you don't want a full cage is beause it being a 1000 your probably going to do more harm then good unless your taking it to the lot only, race rails for the win on the street.I think every one should have at least frame sliders on the bike.

I had a gsxr 750 with a FI cage and I would go to the forest and corner it and never scraped it!
The loop only got slightly scraped when it was fully laid over. The puck took all the abuse when laid over

I wouldn't say fi sucks , I would say the cage is not for beginers , the best riders seem to rock the Texas made cages.
