Rails on 06 zx6r

Hey everyone, although im on every day, I rarely post. I figured, however, I would share a few shots and my thoughts on the my rails. I've been riding around with them for a couple months so I figured id give a solid opinion. Fitment was excellent, as well as the welding. This comes as no surprise, if im not mistaken son from impaktech is known for his craftsmanship. From my understanding he is not so much known for expedited delivery though. That would be my only girpe, it was about a 7 week wait but well worth it. I only ride street and I do not get overly crazy, but I cannot think of any real occasion ive felt as if they were in the way. If it is something you are on the fence about, I would strongly recommend them.

I put a crash cage on my 1999 GSXR600 once. I would drop the bike on it's side then stand on it and do donuts... I used to be such a squid but boy did I have fun

Dyce,

It looks like those bars mount to two points.... one being the engine mount like a slider typically goes to, the other looks like it's got an offset from the swing arm pivot?

Is there a third point of contact on each side I'm not seeing?

They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

You are correct rj, two points of contact. I went with a partial cage, not their full stunt cage. Like you said, connects to the motor mount in the front and theres a peice of all thread that goes through the swing arm pivot, which basically sandwhichds the two back poidnts of the rail to the bike. Pretty straight forward install. There mainly for extra insurance, I dont stunt but its hard for me to trust a set of sliders.
