The stock rearsets on the RR are one of the lowest in the 600 class. You can definately scrap the feelers. I wouldn't recommend doing it on the street, but on the track, if you carry enough speed into a tight turn you can easily scrape due to the amount of lean angle required to negotiate the turn...
i hate those damned feelers because they can catch on your pant legs. i've had a couple of close calls before i went to the vortex rearsets...
Be careful, there are those guys who SAY they scrape, but in reality skin them up with a dremel so they can brag. It is very difficult unless you are on an improperly banked corner (left hander thats crowned left ot right or vice versa). And if you are doing it on the street I hope you have gear on.
I scraped pegs several times on my first bike (1992 CBR 600 F2) and on my friend's Daytona before removing them, and I have ridden the RR much harder than either of those never touching once. I don't take my baby on the track though, so someone else will have vouch for that.
Its not always about the height of the pegs as much as positioning, at least as important when it comes to lean angles.
I've scraped my right one several times on this one one off ramp that does a cloverleaf. Never been down that far on the left side though. However, If I just get a better body position and get off the bike more going around that same turn, I can still do the same line at the same speed without it getting near that close to the ground....could probably do it faster; remember, it's actually better to have the bike more upright as you're able to put more power to the ground.
No, I'm just saying be careful, don't want someone inexperienced to think they need to go out on the street and try to scrape pegs and end up road pizza.
A warning to the young folks that if they run into a goofball squid who fills them full of sh*t encouraging them to ride beyond their abilities (you know-like the guys who let the air out of their tires and ride around the block so it looks like they've been using the whole tire in corners). Those are the guys to stay away from.
yeah, riding you bike to the point where the feelers scrape is something best left for the track.
either way, i would recomend replacing the factory rearsets when ever you get an opportunity. the rigid, non-folding, rearsets are much safer, and you don't catch your pant leg on those damned feelers... :mrgreen:
I scraped the left one at a track day last month, it scared the piss out of me. The day before I was looking at them thinking " I need to remove those things" but of course I never did. I got right off the track and removed them. I would think on the street you'd have to be doing something dumb to touch them down.
No idea how this happened but the coolant overflow tank somehow got a hole in the top. It looks burned but it's not by the head or exhaust. No coolant was left in it. I noticed it when I was changing the oil.
Hi CBR family I have a 06 cbr600rr needs some forks maintenance oil is leaking out the dust seals, can anyone help me I need to know what oil this forks take and how much.
Any information is better then nothing thank you in advance
My bike had a new motobatt battery 2 years ago and has been fine,but noticed today it’s slower cranking the engine when cold. I do mainly short journeys,but do have it on an oxford solar charger when not used. I took some readings today and just want to check if it’s my battery on its way out or...
Long story short, someone tried to steal my bike SMH!!! I got a recommendation that I can solder it, but I don't know how to do that or if it's even possible?? I miss riding! And I am trying to see if I can fix it myself rather than taking it to a shop in Hawaii who's gonna charge me probably a...
