I think you get the bike that low. I've seen it! Also you need to keep in mind, if the road is sloped, it will cut down on clearance. But Tom said it was all good, so I would just go with the flow.

You need to be doing that with the suspension loaded ie. with you sat on it and then you need to compress it further to recreate the attitude of the bike when encountering bumps midturn.

I'd strongly suggest you get a buddy to film you doing this and then post it up so we can see you're doing it right

The shorty looks good good job

Exactly. Judging by your picture of you leaning the bike over in the driveway, you may not have a problem, it's just hard to tell- just like Grinchy said too, when the suspension is compressed (more than you just sitting on it), the chances are that you'll grind it.

Regarding the peg feelers, you'll very likely be scraping them at the end of the day too

I am working on it tomorrow some more. Well a buddy is. I am not concerned about grinding it.... I just don't want it to unsettle the bike so much that she throws me.

Either way, I appreciate all the input and wll post up on Sunday when I get home.
