Here`s the link to Gadget`s Fixit pages where I read about the titanium bolts and making sparks:

Old Dog Ok, not the Vulcan, but my bike, Sportster Custom which is not too low to begin with, I was scrapin the Rubber covered pegs with 1" longer RK air shocks and Progressive fork springs... There is a Sportster "Low" which I don't know anything about, but my Custom is not supposed to be low, but I was messin up my pegs anyway, then they came out with a model called the 48, they had screw in wear pegs on the bottom of the foot pegs... I got a set and now wear on the wear pegs instead of the foot pegs... They are about 1-1/2" long I guess, might be something like OHC was talkin about except in mild steel...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

EQPlayer The VN750 is a sportsbike, not a cruiser. So lean it!

vulcanpower Yes, since I changed to the 880's a few months back I've had a lot more confidence on the road. I still imagine my brakes locking up once in awhile when doing high speeds but overall I trust the bike a lot more.

Ccspinner I have scraped the pegs before on the 750 both sides, the boards on my Nomad like to find the ground alot.
I have worn the nub down on them.
It is not hard to hit them but it does take a good lean.
Somebody measured it once and if I am not mistaken it is 52deg lean, have to trust your tires there.

I find a few golfballs in the pocket works almost as good, don't always need to toss them either.
