LOL. If you don't know that you can fall over if you lean to far, you shouldn't be on two wheels in the first place. [[img]/emoticons/emotion-4.gif[/img]]

From the pictures, It appears that you can scrape the frame and not end up with a highside situation.

Somebody tell me what happens when you have to maintain at least close to your line?

wow I havent seen this thread since George Bush was in office (not being political) When you are scraping hard parts it really depends on a lot of factors as to what happens. how steep was your dive in, how long is the corner(is it a sweper or just a quick turn) how close to your line were you when you started scraping hard parts etc etc. if you are in a sweeper and you just happen to get low enough to start scraping hard parts it will def widen your line. if you are slamming it down hard on a quick turn and hit hard parts there is a chance of actually lifting the wheel off the ground...then you might be in big trouble

Since thread has been ressurected...I'll post of pic of my exhaust. A plate has been welded on... Long sweepers are ok (I guess). Friends would say sparks are knee high. But I have hit hard on short quick turns that did not feel so good. Thinking of finding some titanium or other metal that sparks mucho to bolt down there though...
