just remember where the R&D center is... and the race of it's inhabitants!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!
