Default TouchDown!

What hard part touches the asphalt in a left and a right turn? I notice the rear brake pedal has done some surfing on this new-to-me 2005 but no other obvious signs of taking soil samples at speed.

There are parts of the foot pegs that are designed to touchdown first check those. Remember if you touch down too hard you can take traction away from the rear wheel and low side! Stay safe!

Just askin for my own enlightenment echo. I hope to never drag hard parts. Makes me pucker up when I hear/feel that "scccrrraaappp" sound.

Default Re: TouchDown!

Obviously the foot peg feelers touch first. After that on the Left side the center stand and shifter will touch at roughly the same time. The shifter will move a little, the center stand will not. At that point you will lever the rear tire up off the pavement and things will instantly go to shit.

I ground the hell out of my right foot peg feeler but never pushed it harder than that.

It may be possible that the PO was pushing the brake lever down during a high lean situation and that put the brake lever in contact with the road prematurely.
