Does anyone out there in texland know of a higher footpeg, I find them comfortable enough but the problem is that the grind out so easy. Any suggestions

Have you considered just increasing the preload? It makes a great deal of difference to cornering clearance, and there seems to be no downside other than the increased seat height.

I know it's been a while but....
How did the suspension mods help your problem?

I don't even come to close to going that far over, so I can't offer any advise. :005:

Scraped my foot on a roundabout with the wife on the back - forgot to do up the preload!  :156: :001:
