    No hero blobs

    Just a quick question would the exhaust touchdown if i removed the hero blob or would the underneath of the footpeg touch first?

    Exhaust. Either a slight scrape or its flung off into a hedge time Those blobs are there for a reason. The Cb1kr is no track bike with the stock zorst...

    I have yet to see if the chicken strips can be fully scrubbed, anyone scrubbed to the edge on the right hand side yet without exhaust-tarmac lovin'?

    The lowest allen bolt head on the exhaust cover will touch down roughly the same time as the right hand blob, I know, I've done it. Leave 'em on unless you ride like the cast of "Wild Hogs" (i.e. sat on a bike on the back of trailer).

    The suspension setup allows you to get it over more without touching down, but I can't remember how you'd have to do it to get those results. I think a couple of people have removed their chicken strips without grounding out the OE muffler, just by adjusting the suspension. I don't see the harm in removing the blobs personally if you don't want them there as you'll know about it when you touch down anyway. I vaguely recall someone bent one backwards from leaning over that far, and no, he didn't crash. If only I could remember who it was
