?

Are you worried your cylinder will make contact during a turn?

  1. Yes, I'm very concerned about them getting in the way.

    i read of someone scraping a head cover and staying on, apparently he overcooked the corner, had it leaned right over then hit a bump causing the suspension to compress and...graunch! I've done the same and ground the center stand but no worries since I took the thing off

    I've gotten sparky with the center stand, and know another forum member who regularly sanded his pegs. Neither one of us are concerned about the jugs.

    After our last ride in Arkansas, I don't think so! We might just have to show some folks how well those big ole 1600 handle. :mad: Just don't forget to jack the suspension up to 2 helmets and sport. :)
