How bout so much that the pegs lift up and lift my feet up too!!! Betcha can't guess how I got my username!!! I leave the rubber stock pegs on because they get ground down to V's from draggin on the pavement!!
My heals are also being ground down....and the thing that sucks will be when I go back to my resource adviser (guy who owns the SQ money-USAF) and get another new pair of boots in 6 months...even though the pair I have now are just about 1 month old
i run my shocks on 5 and the bike is at stock height i left the rubber pegs on the front so i don't mess up the nice chrome rear pegs here in wv we got lots of roads to drag just about anything, the rubber pegs are into the metal stud that holds the rubber on and its ground on an angle as well just hate looking at my ground down rineharts thats the sucky part use all of my 200 metz except the last 1/8th of an inch on the sides i only weigh 140 but if i soften the shocks up anymore i can't go around a turn without dragging something
pretty well every time I go out. Boot heals first, then supertrapp bracket. That is mostly gone now, so the pegs lift up once again. Gotten worse since lowering, but I have ground off enough metal so that it seems like it was when stock.
I had a yamaha venture a few years back and that poor thing showered sparks constantly on the twisties. It looked pretty cool from behind, I was told. The trick was how long you could make it scrape. I only scraped my ninja a few times, it had serious lean angle. So fun!
Yep, all the time. It hurt (emotionally) the first time I tagged the radiator cover and exhaust but not so much now. I try to avoid hitting the harder parts now for fear of taking the load off the tire and unbalancing the bike.
Both front pegs scrape pretty often when riding solo.
When riding with a passenger once in a while I even scrape the muffler/hanger or the kickstand if I really open the throttle on the way out of a curve. There is a particular corner near my house that's a perfect recipe for throwing sparks like that if I don't take it easy.
I dropped my fork tubes so the tops are flush with the triple tree and raised my shocks to the stiffest setting to get a little more clearance, but I just lean over farther now
Drag in the corners? Oh yeah. I managed to ground the head off of the bottom small heat shield bolt two different times. Scratched up the bottom exhaust heat shield pretty good. Gave up trying to keep the lower radiator shrouds nice. Curb feelers on the bottom of the pegs are ground down pretty much too. Several months ago I laid the bike down trying to avoid a car so that slowed me down a bit. Trying to get my mojo back again, that stuff was too much fun! I wonder if anyone makes TITANIUM peg feelers? WOOO bright white sparks!!
Pretty often here too.. but I have big feets and I usually feel my leg kick back first.
I always have this memory coming back to me when that happens...
I was about 13 and standing on the side of the road watching a stage of tour de france... They have all sorts of media and assistance following on motorcylcles. Taking a right turn on a street, this guy whith a cameraman in the back leans the bike and the peg just planted in the hot ashpalt, stopping the bike dead in it's tracks...
The bike just spun around the peg real hard and the guys were thrown off the bike pretty far away. No serious injuries, but it was a sight
