lowered & looking for cage

Whats up everyone? I just lowered my 06 ZX-6R 1 & 1/4. Does anyone stunt on a lowered bike? Can it be done without f%&#ing up the lower part of plastics? Will any cages fit, looking for a freestyle or powers. Do any Houston dealers keep any of these cages stock? Well enough Q for now. thanks....

don't think you wanna stunt with a lowered bike. bottom that sucker out and you'll smack your headers on the ground along with the lower plastics.

I had lowered bike since i got my cdl license. Any moving violations and they screw u hard, they can even suspend license, from what i heard. So decided to make this the pretty bike since i plan to pick up a 03 zx-6r and stunt on that. I wont have cash til about 1 or two months. So far every one advise is to either raise it or dont do it @ all. So i might raise til i get stunter bike.

i saw your myspace, theres not really a point in even getting a cage until you slow down, when you do slow wheelies is when you need a cage

just make a cage out of toothpicks for highway wheelies. they'll both do the same thing and get ****ing destroyed when you fall.

So no crash cage til i learn slow wheelies? I just thought crash cages were that exactly "crash cages" so when u crash they absorb some of the damage. I understand in a highway wheelie outcome may be diffrent but if $300 prevents from having to replace engine $$$, and or frame another $$$ I think cages r worth the cost. Im a rookie when it comes to stunting, still learning. So ur advice is greatly apreciated.

Stunt on the hwy with a cage or not. Your bike will be junk. Unless you know to slow it down and learn the rear brake.

nice video btw... :laughing6
