    That’s some scary stuff. Did you see where it’s scraping when you got home?

    It was the middle bolt of the belly pan. Yes it was very scary the 2nd time almost of the road

    @sdm1 is your CB lowered? I cannot remember. Have you had your suspension set up for you with your gear? Seems odd to get that much travel if your sag is set properly. Whats your weight? Do you need stiffer springs & dampening. Just food for thought and my curiosity.

    @sdm1 is it that lower fairing that sticks out in front of your exhaust? I agree with theredrocket it’s seems like something is off if your dragging parts on the bottom of the bike before your peg touches.

    Well going back and looking at your before and after pics of the mods done to your bike that lower cowl does decrease your ground clearance quite a bit from the pictures.

    @theredrocket

    The suspension has been set up for me, rear is Ohlins with 240 spring weight, and front is Ohlins springs and valves. So yes the bike has been set up for me. Just have to get to the track and get it set properly.

    @smalls1000

    Yeah the pan is aftermarket, the place I bought it ensured me that it wouldnt touch, guess I take corners more aggressive then they do. I will just remove it before I go out for rides like that again.

    Somethings not right. Ive lowered every bike ive had. As of now on the 04 rr im 1 1/2 inch lower in the front, i get mine over too.. Ive bottomes it out, riding it in the skatepark lol. Never getting into the turns though. My suspensions is setup for me, 170 pound rider. That could make a differance i would think, or maybe the fairings not mounted correcttly or a bolt sticking out farther than it should. Just some thoughts.

    I really think the belly pan is not made for aggressive cornering. My bike is set for me and my weight. Spent a lot of cash to get it set up. I have emailed Puig-USA to see if they have an answer or solution for the scraping. I dont imagine they will, but for now I have no choice but to remove it when I go to the canyons. I just need about 3mm to get to the edge of the tire, so we plan on doing a few track days on my next days off. Without the belly pan on and see if I get to the edge :)

    scrapped my belly pan tons of time when my bike was lowered…corrected that problem by raising that sucker back up. Hope you figure out the issue and best of luck
