how much lean?

How far are the 750s designed to lean?

I have a taken a couple turns where the foot peg scrapes the road. The bike feels stable at that angle though.

When the foot beg scrapes, does that mean I am leaning over too much or should I get new foot pegs?

Leaning

Hey guy.............If you keep that up, you will be needing more than new footpegs!

DarkJerry, relax.

I scrape my pegs almost every time I ride. That's what they're there for.

Scraping the pegs is just the bike's way of telling you that you are near the bike's max lean angle.

That is according to Jerry "Motorman" Palladino, the motorcycle officer/riding instructor down in central Florida.

You can visit his website by doing a Google search of "Ride Like a Pro".

Those little acorns on the bottom of your pegs.. They are an early warning device saying.. "Yeap, that's far enough.."
