Just go with a good set of frame sliders! Rails look like IMO

Oh and don't forget to scoop up some tank sliders as well. . . . .

Rails are in the way if you pull the fenders off alot. They will add alittle more protection to the sides.

Forget the cage if you want to track or bring the bike down. You need all the clearance you can get.

The new style R6 is very prone to that. Has happened more times then you might think.
