Show us your Canyon Cage
« on: June 18, 2012, 04:16:52 pm »
Got my canyon cage today and installed 1 hour later. Very high quality and looks and feels very strong. Would definitely protect the bike in a drop. Great job Ryan!

Arrived and installed. Although the install was not hard, it was not a trivial task. I don't look forward to removing the fairing. All in all a great product. Thanks Ryan.


I really like the looks of these from the front.

Nice.  But shouldn't this be in the "Accessories and Modifications - C14" section?

Bastard... I'm not even on the round 2 list.  :( Then again, I did wait a bit before ordering.

Question... Do you think that the plastics would come off easier if you trimmed the web between the top 2 fins? I think others did that with the bathroom bars.

MGvalerio could probably find a way to remove the fairing with out taking the cages off, but I'm thinking they have to come off.

With a pocketknife and a gum wrapper, I'd guess.

I got a receipt in the mail with a ups tracking number right on it. Says mine will be here today.
No, really, she is the best and I can prove it...

It's ok here.  I've merged the other thread here.

That link no longer works as that thread was merged into this one.

There is a tiny plastic tab between the fins.  It has no structural importance.  You can cut that tab and remove the plastic without removing the bar. 

Dalroo and I were orders 6 and 14 and we won't be shipped until the 3rd batch if we read it correctly in the thread.

I can't wait for mine to arrive. I have a helmet lock that I took off my wife's highway bars I'm going to install on them so I don't have to keep a bag empty to secure my helmet. Maybe some extra foot pegs to change up riding position on those long days, we'll see.

Danl, can you show us this helmet lock?  That sounds brilliant, a helmet lock on the bars.....I'd love to see it.

Question - I have a toy hauler, but have not used for my Concours as I have been hesitant about tie down options. For those of you who have installed the canyon cages, do you think they might serve as points for strapping the bike? Or are they too low to hold bike vertical?

I've considered adding a detachable wheel chock to help, but even then I end up with the mounting rail in my living area, so I haven't even done that yet. And don't think canyon dancers are a good option with the aluminum bars.

Thoughts?

I think they would be usable for tie down points. Put the soft tie right above the top cross bar.
