Some guys seem to get around it buy buying an 848.
I have almost 100lbs on you, and do track days, I have scraped "EVERYTHING!" but if you set-up the bike properly it does get better, hopefully you have an "S" with the adjustable rod, that way you can raise the rear end to MAX, and drop the fork tubes in the clamps to raise the front, that way you'll have maximum ground clearance, then set you sag to your weight, I have modified my rear brake pedal & shifter so that they are high as possible, and the "stoopid" sliders are just to save the pegs, and help you feel the ground. I also have changed my riding style a bit, as I found that you do not have to lean to the max to make a corner, a trick that instructor Doug Polen taught us. Hope this helps, AlexWhen I first got on this site, I saw some pics of the rear brake lever getting in the way, then I experienced it too followed by the footrest (without those stoopid sliders, I call em stoopid coz already we are having ground clerance issues and to add them is, well, stoopid )
Then after a track day, I realized even if get raised rearsets i'm still doomed for clearance, coz my pipes (stock) had scraped too. Anyone else? Remedy?
I weigh only 150lbs so am wondering how the heavier guys go around it.
Before I got the woodcrafts I used to lift my foot off the pegs mid corner to stop my boot from scraping. You can kind of see in this photoI did my first track day on the Hyper last weekend, all was going well, and I did notice my foot hitting the ground, untill.....
I did loose all of the rear brake pedal, but that is due to my foot hitting the ground, pulling it off the peg, to avoid a low side, i let off the throttle and decided to head towards the grass, as I just passed a few people. When I got to the grass, the front tire dug in and the bike went over, very softly, but on the way down the brake lever snapped off, also have a few scrapes on the fairing and nose! (see wanted add)
This was the first time with this style riding on the track, and I didnt feel comfortable for the first half day, but I know it was all in my head. I have an 848, and always drove sportbikes, so it was different for sure.
