Introduction

The only thing worse than dropping or crashing your 3-cylindered baby is the repair bill or the lingering damage you’ll face afterwards. At, Higdonion, all of our crash cages are hand fabricated and designed withstand abuse and keep the notoriously-wide CP3 motor in your FJ-09, FZ-09, or XSR900 safe from damage in even the worst of accidents. Whether you’re taking your FJ-09 on some rough terrain or you’d like to keep your FZ-09 or XSR900 safe after an “oh sh*t” moment on your commute, we’ve got a couple options of cages with different styles and levels of protection—the Trail Cage and the Urban Cage.

Installation takes less than an hour (typically less than 20 minutes) and all of the hardware and components are included. Typically, our cages cost $400+ depending on your customizations, but if I can get at least 15 participants, I’m willing to offer a discount of up to $125 off. Below are more details about the cage itself, including the differences between the Trail Cage and the Urban Cage. You’ll have the chance to choose your cage type, options, and colors when you join the group buy.

Because all of these cages are fabricated by hand and powder coated, it’ll take about 20-30 days of production time before shipment. There shouldn’t be any delays, but if there are, I’ll keep you updated.

About Higdonion

At Higdonion, we saw a serious void in protection accessories offered for newer motorcycles. With 15 years of fabrication experience and 20 years of riding experience, we decided to step up and do something about it.

When Yamaha released the FZ-09, there was an achilles heel where a fin protruding down from the oil pan would drag on the ground under high compression and crack the pan, dumping the oil. Our first product released was what is now known as the Urban Cage for the FZ-09/FJ-09/XSR900.

Ever since then, we’ve kept in-tune with the enthusiast Yamaha 900-series market and have continued to dream up, build, test, and offer the most robust protection products available on the market today.

Urban Cage vs. Trail Cage

The original Urban Cage flows perfectly with the design of the FJ/FZ/XSR frame while providing excellent protection of the engine and oil pan.

The Trail Cage is a beefier version of the Urban Cage that provides better ground clearance and protects the headers from whatever trails your FJ/FZ/XSR may encounter.

• Stealthier, OEM-Like Design
• 1” x .095” Mild Steel Tubing
• 12ga. Cold-Rolled Mild Steel Skid Plate
• Completely M.I.G. Welded
• New Motor Bolts Included
• Optional Sliders

• More Robust with Better Ground Clearance & Header Protection
• 1” x .095” Mild Steel Tubing
• 12ga. Cold-Rolled Mild Steel Skid Plate
• Completely M.I.G. Welded
• New Motor Bolts Included

Design
All-Around Protection

The Higdonion Cages are the only fully free-floating design on the market. This means that the cage tubing and skid plate fully encompass the engine and rigidly attach to the frame—not the engine or other sensitive components. You could even lift the bike up with a floor jack from the skid plate!

Skid Plate

The robust, 12 gauge, cold-rolled steel skid plate is designed to protect the extremely vulnerable oil pan of the CP3 motor found in the FJ-09, FZ-09, and XSR900. Whether you’re nailing rocks, jumping curbs, surprised by potholes, or launching over that bump a little to enthusiastically—the Higdonion cages have got your back. (or in this case, belly!)

All-Around Protection

With any Higdonion Cage offered in this Group Buy, you can select from 3 finish options:

Textured Black
Semi-Gloss Black (+$20)
Yamaha Blurple (+$100) with either Textured Black or Semi-Gloss Black Skid Plate
CP3 Bronze (+$100) with either Textured Black or Semi-Gloss Black Skid Plate
Optional Sliders

On the Higdonion Urban Cage, you have the option of adding on a set of replaceable Delrin sliders for maximum protection should your bike go down on the street.

Testimonials

After reading several blogs where the oil pan was damaged by seemingly minor hits, I started looking for a skid plate as a preventative measure. The Higdonion cage more than accomplished my needs. Assembly is a breeze and the color matched powder coating was impeccable, actually completes the look of the bike. Thankfully I've not needed to test its strength as of yet, but am confident that it will protect my motor and critical exposed parts. On a side note, I called on several occasions before and throughout purchase and spoke with Kris on each occasion who was informative and helpful. I highly recommend this product and Higdonion's customer service. Thanks again Kris.

Great Cage!! Fits absolutely perfect! Easy install. Fit around my M4 exhaust. Laid bike down and protects as Kris said it would. Kris provided Great communication and tracking was made available as well. Great quality of work and craftsmanship , Can't say enough !!
Thanks Kris!

This cage installed easily on my FZ-09 in minutes. It fit perfectly and will save me thousands of dollars if it ever falls over, as well as protecting the oil pan. It also looks good in the bike and the finish is better than mass produced plates that I have purchased in the past.
