First real twisty ride...
I took my 790 with me and the family on a vacation in the Ozarks. Lots of really beautiful, twisty roads that are a blast to ride. Have to dodge the Harley guys locking up their brakes going through the curves, but otherwise some really great fun. What I discovered however, after several days of runs, is a real tendency to push my right heel into my exhaust. I melted a good 1/8Ē of the heel of my Alpinestar boot. I havenít had the issue during casual rides, but when I got up on the balls of my feet and started getting aggressive, I realized the issue.
Iíve got an aftermarket carbon slip on, and Iíve got a size 12 boot, which Iím sure isnít helping anything. The midpipe has a carbon fiber heel guard, but Iím contacting below the guard when I lean in aggressively to the right.
Anyone have an elegant solution other than wrapping that section of pipe with a fiberglass tape? I supposed I could get some carbon fiber pre-preg and form my own extended guard, but making a mold and forming it isnít exactly a simple process, though I suppose itís better than ugly tape.
