The 'cage' might work just fine for stunt riders as they seem to drop them while doing slow speed moves. I reckon you should show off your new fairings.....that's why your buying them for?
Let everyone see how good your fairings are. I've never seen a road bike with a cage (I'm not into stunting). I'd say that if you dropped it at speed, it would dig in like a gravel trap. You might slide but your bike will turn to mangled crap from going end over end. If you have a look at the 'endurance' racers, they grind all there brackets, brake levers, rear sub frame etc. When they crash, everything falls off to save the internals, engine, electrics etc.
All depends on how you want to look at things. If you want a good looking bike that goes like the clappers, just don't worry...pay for new fairings. If you like to crash a lot, build a tank...add some weight...go slower...
I think cages are ugly. Unless youre stunting or you like watching your bike fall on its side, pointless. I even think frame sliders are kind of ugly, but good to have. The money you'll spend on a cage is probably what it would cost to fix a scuffed piece of plastic. pointless.
ok!!![xx(] I think a chromed cage over some $2000 silver CF bodywork or paint will look just fine. The post was asking for pics and info not your opinions on style or their functionality. Cage skeptics are alwayse non users. All cage users swear by em , high speed wrecks(70 in this example) to low speeds (driveway tips).
And i ride/live in LA im worried about evryone, and thing, but me putting my bike down.
And i dont see to many avid to average stunt rollers scrapinga zx7r very often....although anythings possible as recent harley antics have shown at stuntfest 06
