I have scraped my stock pegs a few times but since switching exhaust to the Inferno's I scrape that before I scrap pegs, plus I switched to some Kury pegs and have yet to scrap those.

From day one I'm scratching my footpegs regulary on both sides. The first set of feelers lastet about 4 weeks, so, when replacing them, I took out the spacers an shortened the screws of the feelers, so they are about an inch shorter. Works well, but about every 2.5k miles even the shorter feelers have to be replaced. Two weeks ago, I scratched of an edge of the left footpeg itself, because the feeler was worn down to low. Very often in curves, I have to take the foot of the peg, to allow it to swing in a little bit ! But it's a lot of fun, to push the fury like this through the curves and many of the riders of the normal touring- and sportsbikes get big eyes when seeing a chopper go like this !

Yep I've scraped both my pegs on the first day I got the Fury as well. I was too used to my R6 and I still scrape a little here and there since I'm too used to being able to take hard turns. I don't think I'll ever get used to that scraping sound lol. Bottomed out and scraped the bottom of my frame today for the first time hitting a pothole and I almost cried haha!

My bike is still stock and I feel like i lay it down quite far but I guess not cause I haven't scraped yet. The chicken strips on the edge of the back tire are about 3/8. Cant imagine getting farther than that.

I took off the trainers off my stock pegs and I'm still scraping. Too many miles on my RC51 I guess lolol I burned off all my chicken strips the first week. It does surprisingly well in the corners with such a small front tire. On and off ramps seem to be the worst place to drag pegs

I usually get a little warning by scraping the boot heel before the pegs begin to scrape. I also removed the feelers a long time ago.

Also stock suspension and I scrape the pegs all the time. The first couple times it scared the crap out of me.

We have a lot of rotaries/round-abouts here and that is where It happens the most but I have done it several times pulling out of parking lots and what not as well. I took the "nipples" off to give that extra clearance and that helped from it happening so often at least :).

I've noticed that I'm scraping my cobra sweets before the feelers. I was going to ask if that was common, but I see that it is. Next we're going to need the knee pads. LOL.
