Boots rubbing frame
« on: December 11, 2013, 11:31:35 PM »

Are anyone else's boots rubbing the paint off the frame by the foot pegs?

Or is it just me?

Yea, mine is getting shinny and will probably wear through soon. I think a carbon fiber looking gel filled decal would look great there and of course protect the frame.

Check out the thread Gel Filled Decal started by Chaos. Good looking stuff.

Guys

I had this before and posted a while back the protection templates I made for this problem. I will look up my photos and re post. Basically had a sheet of paint protector material and made my own templates then transferred that to the paint protector. No problems since.

Guys
if you look at the forum modifications and "seadog" various bits July 11th 2013 there is a photo of the frame scuffing protector I made.
Hope it is of help.
