    scrape

    If leaning past where the pucks grind this is apparently the next place to touch. Wish this bike was a little taller.

    Traxxion is the fix for that. The pavement will turn you foot pegs into stilettos, and then wear into your front crash bars before grinding away at the exhaust shields.

    Yes, both sides on my bike have the same road tattoos.

    scraping around turns

    now that's what I call getting the most out of your tires. WOW no nubbies left on the sidewalls when its time to replace is something to be proud of in my book. Round-abouts at 30 mph anyone?

    One good thing about the new wings is it will not have those to scrape.

    I've repainted the heat shields twice now. I replaced my belly pan after these pics were taken. dragged holes in the corners. I upgraded my suspension last winter. Still touch down occasionally, but much less often

    Normally yes. Usually the heat shield gets it when coming into a corner hard and the suspension is compressed . Especially with a dip in the corner.

    Pegs are "usually" the first thing.
    Pavement 'hills' & 'valleys' during a good lean will cause other things to scrape first.

    I've replaced my peg bolts twice now.
    My belly pan was repainted twice before the side ripped off and took out one of the acorn nuts holding it in place.
    Heat shields repainted once.
    Plastics all scuffed up.
    Underside of pipes - I don't even look anymore.

    Since Traxxion suspension upgrade, I've had to really work at finding some hills and valleys to scrape anything but the footpegs.

    Advanced rider tip: keeping "maintenance throttle" during the entirety of a turn will keep the suspension set and rear tire loaded, resulting in less things scraping.

    Cheers,

    I need to up my game. I don't get to scrape my pegs hardly at all...Officer friendly frowns upon it mightily when I do it rounding the Gorst corner

    Am liking my recent Traxxion front end work. I'm still scraping; but not as much as before.

    I hate scraping.

    I'm just under 10k and I've scraped maybe three times and the last was after I put on my highway pegs and was experimenting.

    It definitely is how you ride this bike. each one to their own style. Ride your own bike.
