No problems. Mine are just below that point.



I did it b/c I though it would make me cooler, along with my streamers on the end of my handlebars. I also put a 12 inch scooter wheel up front to improve flickability on the straits. I don't know if it was lowering the front end or placing a tiny wheel on the front, but I suffer from stability issues now even at a stand still. (on or off the bike)

To elaborate more on my last post. Done it to lots of bikes for short people along with the back. Doesn’t it the motor. Again I ask why.

xracer I use it daily in city, I need more grip with legs (going reverse and manevrouing), noticably easier to do it when its low like this.
