When that happened on my bike I used a longer bolt and that went through to the other side and a bolt.

FYI this is incase you strip the motor mount threading.
looks like i'll be doing this in a few days

ive had about 5 fi cages, they work for some slow speed but if you have alot of momentum or speed from my exp. they dont hold up too well and after so many crashes they are a pain to get back on when you are doing maintence items or replaceing motor parts or in my case motors. ive heard some very good things about si and like stated before personally i think it would be just as easy taking the si cage off to put on frame sliders then to put the cage back on to stunt. fi gets bent out of shape too easily.

i put the loop in one side then put the bike on its side and put a couple 25lbs weights and my body on the other side and pushed off my garage sealing to get enough leverage to bend it into the other loop then a sledge hammer to move the bar up to get a bolt through it.

lol....
I have been running FI since the beginning, and really have never has a problem with it except blowing motor mounts (only happened on both sides once in the last 7 years), and once I re-tapped the motor mounts to the bigger size and never had a problem..... except I blew the motor, and now I am back to stock sizes...

Been riding 2+ years on the new motor (with stock bolts), and have not messed one up yet...

but, I will say all cages will fail at some point... if you are dropping a 400+ pound bike at any speed, stuff will break.... "NO" cage will hold up to constant abuse... I don't care what anyone runs.....

I like SI too, they make some other SICK products as well like subcages, round bars, etc.....I just wouldn't run their cage, because I like not having banged up shins ( I am 6' 7" and my legs are long.. lol)

anyways, carry on....
