Foot-peg scrapers
on: September 04, 2019, 05:40:11 PM
I am fascinated by the lengths of the foot-peg scrapers. The left one is longer than the right. From my crude measurements, the pegs seem to be mounted at the same height. So have Honda considered the effect of road camber?
Hence for UK driving on the left, our left foot-pegs have a greater clearance to the road than the right pegs, due to sloping crown cambers.
Is this an amazing piece of clever observation by Honda or am I missing something?
Who in their right mind would design a vehicle that falls over when it stops?
