Hey everyone!!!

higdonion
Hello everyone! Thanks for the warm welcome! My name is Kris Higdon and I am the owner of Higdonion.  We are super excited to be a part of your community! Our FZ-09/FJ-09 products have become really popular, so we thought, why not broaden the horizon? We are excited to announce we just started presale on FZ-07 protection cages and they will be ready to ship in about a week! Visit my website Higdonion and get yours on order with a $20 discount coupon! (fz07presale) as a appreciation for ordering a little early.
I have a photo of the tacked up prototype and of the previous built FZ-09 below.Thanks Again!Kris

Sweet!....I'm looking forward to seeing a finished product.....That Bottom Plate is a lot less Bulky (and less ugly) than some of the others I have seen.

Agreed but I'm thinking if that plate could somehow come up higher and over the outside of the tubing (bolted to the outside of the tubing but retaining it's strength between the left & right side) and given some cool shape (instead of just having a pretty much flat, square looking plate) similar to a typical belly pan that would be the cherry on the cake, IMO. 20 minute install, that's nice!

Looking forward to seeing pictures of the finished thing. If it looks like the FZ-09 one, it will look great!

Have the front come up a bit to protect the oil filter.

Will you also be making a subcage that has a built in round bar like you have for the FZ-09?

Yes I plan on that. Hopefully I'll have some free time after the new year. Or if someone ordered it then I'd gladly be forced to do it sooner lol.

I think I'll make a second aluminum add on covering up to the radiator. Light weight and breathable. That way people who already have the cage can add it.

I don't blame you. I have the first one complete. Not powder coated yet still need to finish my jig and do a test session. Soon I promise.

Looking good. Just my visual preference here but I absolutely love the look of the tubes weld points on fz09 cage in this photo; to me it's aesthetically perfect. Any chance of changing the 07's weld points to something similar? The big "X" look of the 07's cage doesnt appeal to my eye. Or is it simply the same cage design but opposite side shown in the 07's pic? Does the 09's cage opposite side have the big "X" as well?
 
Just my humble 2 cents. Regardless of my nit-picking, I'm looking forward to seeing both sides your finished product. ;)

Oh interesting, I had the exact opposite opinion..  the other side of the 07 is like the 09 and I planned on doing a lot of work to see if I could get both sides to a nice x. Because structurally it's best for tubes to line up on Center line.  Not that this is critical for these, but that's just how I like to see it. Thanks for the input! [/img] I love to hear what people think about the esthetics.

I actually agree with Mr.Puss. I like the 09 Tube weld points better as well. But you don't really buy these things for looks.

No they're not for looks but that's the beauty of motorcycles, how such a purpose built machine can look awesome with out a cover or body per say, there's little on a bike that could be left out. Yet they look great. (well most) I appreciate the input because how they look is important to me.

Can we see pics of the other side of the cage on the 07? you said that side is like the 09 and I'd be interested in seeing how that side looks.

Hi Kris,
Do you ship to Dubai, U.A.E?
And do you have some other designs as well for the FZ07 cages?

Yes last one I sent out there was about $150 to get out there just a heads up. This is the main design. I can make small changes or add ons depending.
