I have heard that the powersstuntworkz crash cages are more durable than the FreestyleIngenity ones, but have never used one so its just hearsay.

I believe hes looking for a full cage like this one:

Also, foxrider6912, you realize that no matter what cage you put on there all yer shit is gonna get busted up if youre learning to stunt- just thought Id throw that out there.

What Kegger said is true about the cage and the busting of the bike. The other pics from OldSchoolMC are rails, they are pretty much longer frame sliders. People use those to help protect the frame and a little bit of plastic, but still be given the ability to lean the bike over well for twisties. Also, the cage doesn't protect the tail and sub frame in the event of you looping the bike, you will want to get a wheelie bar for that. Good luck.

Judging from the picture I posted, I would say no, no modification.

No, no modification required, just get the right fitted cage for your bike and use the existing engine mount points to install the cage, similar to putting frame sliders on a bike

yeah no frame mods need to be done. the FI cages are geared more for experienced riders that dont put the bike down that much, and when they do they are "soft landings"...lol. Powers makes a great cage and is a stand up guy. Dont be suprised if you have to wait for alittle bit to get it though as Matt still makes them by hand at his house pretty much. Nothing from him is mass produced. The Race Railz that you have pictured are more for the actual track however many stunt riders use them cause like it was already stated you can still have full lean angle and not have to worry about any scraping. The full cage though your not going to want to be hitting major twisties with it cause it will scrape and its not going to move ending up in a not so nice situation. And the subframe bars wont save your tail section or subframe either in the event of a loop. They are not meant as a safe gaurd there meant for bar tricks, and a foot hold.
