Knee down action
« on: 19 April, 2008, 08:58:59 AM »
so can ya, and who has got the pegs or knee down on this cbf1000? does the smaller rear tyre affect this at all over a 180.

i assume the 160 rear tyre is a lot cheaper to replace than my 180s on my current ride? :465:

Pegs are easy to touch down. I'd say they're probably a little too easy to touch down  :016:

I agree mine touch on most bends without trying. I just use it as a marker that the bike is over far enough.
It was also easy to do on police Pan 13's, used to make Joe public look!

The only time my knee touches the tarmac is when I am checking the tyre pressure

 :oldie:

I will leave scraping pegs to you youngsters

ah a fellow constablury, im in the job too.

tis good to get the pegs down then before the tire runs out of grip. i always figured teh center stand will scrape before everything else like on most bikes.
