I'm just happy the bike was alright, as far as the potato launcher comment, this bike serves one purpose and one purpose only. Get me to work and home on a daily basis and allow me to use the carpool lane. L.A. rush hour traffic is a mutha without a bike!  ;D
My money used to go to my Gixxer, then my Harley Springer Softail, then my CBR. Sold most of my other bikes and down to a Gixxer 1000 a Gixxer 600 and the Connie. The 1000 is being sold on Sunday and then the 600 will go up for sale, I'm getting a Street Glide to sink some money into  :D
Connie for daily driving, Street Glide for weekend cruising  :P

Hi I`m a newbie to the forum.
 I`m interested in a set of  Canyon Cages for my 2008 GTR 1400 which has been lowered by about 2cm or 20mm.
Has anyone fitted them to a lowered GTR? Will there be enough ground clearance when she`s lent over?

Welcome!!

Mine is lowered more than 2cm (1") and when it fell over with the Canyons, it JUST BARELY TOUCHED the bottom fairing in one little spot.  I believe if it were not lowered, it would not touch at all (which is the design). Of course, yours is a 1st gen not 2nd gen, so the design is different, but the design goals of the bars was the same.

Keep in mind that when mine did touch (barely) from a non-moving tipover,  the pegs were already touching before the cages did.  So I doubt the cages will affect cornering lean at all, even when the bike is lowered.  So go for it!

If you do a Google search, you may find vendors who sell for less than the manufacturer...that's what I did.

Has anyone found a cover or something for the step nut on the left side of the bike? That thing needs to either be covered up or painted.

Is anyone seeing any discounts on the cages ... if so can you post a link or PM me please? I think that it's time to buy/install these babies.

The best time is before you drop the bike :)   (And in that regard, I lucked out for once).  Not aware of any discounts, however.  But even at "normal" price, they will pay for themselves a couple of times over the very first time the bike is pushed over.

I am seriously considering a set of these cages, but was wondering if they have to be removed  when work is done on the engine and if so, how difficult is it to remove them?

Depends on what engine work you are performing.  You can remove all the plastics without removing the cages if you just make one tiny slit in the side fairing and that slit is hidden behind the front side fairing.  You could even put a piece of black duct tape on the back side if you think it might move at all.

I used an older version of this tool to just snip it and then I bend one part to the left while bending the other part to the right and slip it over the pipe.  Thank you Rasmith for the suggestion.

Hi Gumby, I ran accross this post and I had to register for this site so I can respond.  Never, ever, ever, use the bars in the back as a tie down area.  They will break your sub frame.  I made this mistake and nearly lost the bike.  The only thing holding the rear bar, bag mount and rear foot beg is a 2" tab welded to the subframe.  The weld will break with this force that you have from the tie downs.  I replaced my subframe myself, 9 hours of labor and 800.00 from Kawasaki.  Instead, thread through the kickstand mount underneath or use the bars of the rear subframe to tie down.  I can send pictures later, I still have my broken subframe in the garage so I'll get pictures up.  I have enjoyed your pics so far.  I'm on my second connie and we share similar mods.  Cheers.

Not so sure I would recommend  this, but it works. I was stressing for 12 miles, and it got worse with every bump.  Kootos to MCEnterprises and their well built tip over protection.
