Have to ask. Why no flippy flip rear sets? I use them on my 2001, i just installed risers with the OEM rear sets. Whenever I have the bike leaned over the pegs barely touch and they fold nicely when dragging. I feel like the sturdy rear sets would take weight off the tires and risk loosing traction.
Think about an algebraic problem, specifically a quadratic formula. The goal is solve for X
. How do you solve it? Equalize the factors on either side of '=
' sign. To do this one needs to have a number of points that supply information, be they numbers or variables.
in our case, more the merrier. X
in this case is to keep the plastics, and fluid containing cases off terra firma
, right? That's why we invest in any number of items like frame sliders, fork sliders, swingarm sliders
and engine case sliders
.*If any of you own 2013-'18 636, I swear by Kawasaki's own engine case sliders.
The use of rigid mount foot pegs offers one more point of contact that will keep one's Precious
off the tarmac, etc. Replacement pegs are vastly cheaper than O.E.M. or aftermarket ABS plastics or carbon/kevlar parts, and your lovely non-O.E. exhaust can.
They are relatively cheap insurance. I'm pretty sure the O.E. use folding pegs to bump up their cowling sales
