Quite right. Besides, twisty roads are few and far between around these parts. It's just about unavoidable to wear down the center strip on that back tire.Or if you only ride on the street:
- 1" = Pretty cautious
- 3/4" = Safe rider
- 1/2" = Likes to play near the edge
- 1/4" = Has excuse for every accident (sand, oil, animal, paint, etc.)
- 0" = Heard at funeral "He was an awesome rider. No chicken strips at all."
I downloaded the MyRide app (Andriod). Placed it my tank bag flat. It pretty much stayed put. It was an easy local ride.If you have a Andriod based phone, then go to the Google Play store and download the Yamaha MyRide app. It tracks speed, lean angle, acceleration, elevation and so much more, and it works perfectly for a Kawasaki N1K.
I scratched the exhaust sometime earlier, before doing the suspension setup where we have set the rear suspension really hard. During the last ride I definitely felt only plastic scratching the asphalt, no metal contacts. I weight only 80kg. I also heavily load the front with trailbraking and I suspect that these two factors now keep my stock pipe a bit above the surface.Did it also get the underside of your exhaust heat shield? Mine was destroyed at 51 degrees, but no fairing damage.
Marco Was this fairing damage (circled in red) due the lean or some other reason? Just curious. Also can you post a photo of your exhaust damage so it can be compared to damage that @HouTex1000SX got on his 2020? Thank You.53 degrees so far.
Don't attempt to reproduce, it will scratch your fairing
No, this hole is another story.Marco Was this fairing damage (circled in red) due the lean or some other reason?
My exhaust heat shield damage was a lot worse than Marco's at only 51 degrees (off bike now since I got the Akrapovic). I'm sure that differences in road camber come into play. And yes, just noticed that I also got similar fairing damage.
Isnt that something? Would there be something wrong with editing a response ? A person posts something and it came across the wrong way? Maybe it had a misspelled word...maybe it sounded bad, mean, or antagonistic?
