pant leg catching!
« on: June 03, 2019, 02:58:08 AM »
has anyone else had the problem of their right pant leg catching on the rear master shield?  Not a real good feeling when you go to put your right foot down and the bike wants to come with it.  Any fixes other than closed cell foam between the two.
thanks,
Ski

Similar trouser accidents were a common problem back in the '70s when bell bottom jeans were fashionable and bike's had kickstarts  :745:

Fortunately fashion has moved on and riding trousers with adjustable velcro round the ankles are available  :164:

Not with this bike in its two iterations - not even once. Interesting situation. I always wear boots though - even in the heat of summer (they actually shield the engine heat, road heat and ambient heat and I am more comfortable with them) Maybe that's why. Also, my pants are riding pants, so they are not loose at the bottom.

Sorry guys, but what exactly is the "rear master shield"?

I'm assuming he meant either of these two shields:

- The one shielding the reservoir
or
- The one shielding the exhaust pipe

That's why I always say: Pictures help a lot. Post pictures with questions - or questions with pictures - or questions marked on pictures - or pictures marked with questions... Man, I'm hungry

C'mon NiK, it doesn't take much to assume he means the rear master cylinder shield, just a typo.  :114:
