Not my bike...
Another Busa owner I bumped into the other day lowered his Bike (front/rear). Which looks good, however, the rear tire now makes contact with the undertail and has rubbed a hole through it............ Are there any fixes to prevent this from happening again? He was going to lay fiberglass/epoxy on the inside to repair, but didn't want the same condition to return. My bikes not lowered so I couldn't help him. One last thing, its a custom lowering job/parts. Every bump eats alittle more from the tail.......

Yeah evidently he has lowered it to low in the back or he is very heavy...Fix raise it up a notch in the rear that should do the trick...He can also stiffen the rear shock so that it doesn't have a lot of give...Mine is lowered front and back but I have not come close to the rear tire touching...If he does a lot of burnouts and the rear is to low that may be the cause...Just like drag cars when they burnout remember how the height of the tires grows???Same effect with a bike...

Mine is just strapped in the front...If I'm not on the track I like the normal height on the front...
