Putting foot/leg out transfers more weight to front of motorcycle. Gains are twofold, more weight on front tire = more traction. Also compresses fork, decreasing trail = quicker turning. In outer words, for the same reason it's done in the dirt. :headscrat

Sweet! Where'd you get the Italian flag graphics?
On another note, why do SM guys always put their foot out on corners? I know why on dirt, but is it just habit or is there some geometry effect on a SM on pavement? I'm not saying it's bad, I'm really just curious.
Oh yeah, can't you hold a cocktail & shoot a picture at the same time?:lol:
Ya can get the same graphics from Ferracci minus the SMRR swing arm decal .. I used to sell the kits but saving the last one for my next bike maybe?

Thanks Backin, I've never owned a road bike & still a little paranoid on fast paved corners (I ride a TE not an SM) so I always weight the front in a panic (or a dirt corner where I need to hold the front & slide the rear) but try to hold rear traction & weight both on pavement. In dissadent's pics one shows cornering with knee drag & both feet on pegs, The others show foot out. Doesn't weighting the front cause the back to come out (too) sooner? Sport bike riders never take feet off the pegs but don't have a 37" seat & 12" suspension to suck up either.

You got it brother! I will revisit this thread the first week in Febuary and PM you. Have a relaxing & fruitful holidays. {just thinking...Maybe I could trace it as well, I'll pick up some transparent paper and give it a shot. Also I could take the swingarm off, go to Kinkos and put the fucking thing in the copy machine, scan the image and them email it....Alright, I'll take care of it-I've got to slap some new slicks on anyway so I might as well go all the way}



Be well,

FBD

Where are people getting these sick dual exhausts from? Are they off the shelf items or is it custom? Do they produce comparable #'s compared to an Arrow or Ackro?

The twin FMF's are da bomb.....precision engineered titanium torpedos with an almost V-Twin type low end tone. Almost makes my Aprilia Factory w/Tigcrafts sound so so.....just kidding......the FMF's are not far off.

Watching GP Moto rip up d-town San Diego after their tune-up/test ride is a sight and audio experience anyone would enjoy.
