Regarding the best method of motorcycle protection

Does anyone know where I might be able to find more information on "stunter" cages that these people integrate into their stunt bikes as a more... effective frame slider? Is it impossible to pull off something clean that will not get me looks from more experienced riders as well as trash talk?


I don't think I've ever seen a track bike with such a cage which is why I'm asking, I plan to maybe do an occasional track educational day every and was wondering what everyone thought would be the best way to save my plastic and frame both on the track and on the street. I'm not a stunter or anything, and I understand the type of people that stunt usually do it on the street and have a negative connotation associated with them, which is why I'm inclined to believe this type of setup would be looked down upon by more experienced riders.

Sorry if that was a bit jumbled up, this is not the most coherent of times.

A cage probably won't work on the track. They will limit your ground clearance a lot.

So do you track guys just use frame sliders?

I guess it's either enjoy the bike and risk losing it or limit my ground clearance and keep its condition somewhat (boring).

Or get a dedicated track bike(a cheap, mechanically sound POS) and NOT use the VFR for track duty.
