Sorry guys, my connection crapped-out after I hit submit - guess it didn't get the body text up there in time......anyways!..

I'm wondering if any of you 07 riding guys (maybe previous years too) who have US 10.5 / Euro 45 boots or bigger are having the inside heel 'tapped' sometimes by the moving swing-arm? I ride with the balls of my feet on the pegs pretty much 100% and the heel of my boots are right next to the swing-arm...my feet are in-line with the bike so no duck feet!

My A* Supertech's are getting a tap from the rear swingarm in certain situations when the rear suspension is moving. I can see the contact point, so am gonna put a patch of clear adhesive film over there to stop it marking.

So do any of you get this also? Might just be my 'big' feet!

Chris

i get this too on my 2006 from time to time. i also have stock rear sets so that may play a part in this as well.

it happens to me on my 05 when I am on the track riding agressive, but never on the street. It does not bother me but when it does hit I will move my heel out a little .

Yeah, there are quite a few of us who have had that problem. You can get touch up paint from Honda, it is the same as the frame color. I think put on 3m film over that spot to protect it and bent my heal gaurds out just a little. Others have used the fuzzy part of black velcro stuck to it to protect it.

Thanks for the input guys, it's not just me then! I guess I'll put some clear 3M over it and see how it goes. The height of the stock rearsets is high enough for me on the road at least, so will just put up with it. I may also adjust the kick plates a little, thanks for the tip. I guess the Honda development testers have small feet!

Yamaha puts nice protector plates on this spot on the R6. I'm guessing Honda didn't want to add the extra weight... :toothy4:

I agree with the poster who said it adds character. Also, by rubbing off a bit of paint, the bike is actually that much lighter. :icon_lol:
