Fear of rear wheel sliding out in a corner

Recommended Posts


I personally have never dragged the feelers on my FZ-07, at least I think I haven't. I do get her over plenty on both left and right side according to the rear tyre's. I will say for the record, the previous owner had changed the preload from the 3 position to the 5 on the rear shock. I never felt like I needed to change it it again in either direction at between 150-170 lbs (depending on what time of year).

but if you're regularly dragging those on the street you're either going too fast or you're riding poorly (counterleaning).

Man, even in the canyons, if you've got proper body positioning you shouldn't be scraping really.


That being said, I think with the soft stock suspension it might be a lot easier... so thats a factor.

Both points here may have some reasoning to my statement.^^^^^^^^

And this one is how I feel👇👇

Up in the canyons/mountains I lean all the way over but in town there is no need to lean like that.

I do live in Arkansas and my rides are mostly country/canyon roads, well paved, but can have a lot of washouts,debris,deer, and quarry trucks, so maybe I ride on the cautious side of getting her over !???

Off to the trackday I go.

Now if your feelers aren't scraped you feel you aren't worthy. Ha!

As I took my first lesson on cornering the first thing my instructor did was to take off the feelers.
