Question come who ever runs impaktech cage and/or race rails

So i can wear my chicken strips to nothing easly on the streets but i also stunt on the weekend so here is my question.

Can you full lean with there cage? I know you can easly on race rails since even tracks allow them now.

Send pics if you got them.

Thanks guys

Kubic - I have the impaktech on both my 0304 636 and 13 636. Both bikes have amazing clearance. My pegs hit before cage comes close.

Correct. Subcage only hits when bike starts to roll over. At least my subcage.

I have rails on my '12. I think they look pretty clean...almost like a part of the bike.. They don't stand out too much and have not had any issues riding with them on.

Define full lean. Depending on the tyre, full lean is when parts of the motorcycle are being grinded by the asphalt, footpegs not taken into account since the stock ones fold. Using non foldable aftermarket footpegs will alter the maximum lean angle, as well as adjusting the height of the rearsets. Since the cage or rails are made to hit the ground before the fairings, they often (at least the cage on the first picture) alter the maximum lean angle. If your question is if you will be able to get your knee to the ground with a cage mounted, your answer is yes.
Edit: Very very very few of us who ride will ever be at the maximum lean angle of the BIKE without crashing, so i wouldnt worry.

What i mean by full lean, the hole tire is used there are no "chicken strips" so to say.

Then it depends on your tyres, Battlax bt21 for instance will not need more then 40-45 degrees of lean angle before they are fully used so to say, while dunlop sportsmart, pirelli supercorsa and others will accept more then 55degrees. Tyre profile is also a part of the equation.
