Oh yea, plenty of kickstarter clearance. And the mounts are 1/4 inch steel which I suppose could bend over time. I'll keep an eye on that and try not to gain weight. And I'm thinking that by the time the footpegs start to droop I may be getting pretty droopy myself.

If you fill in the triangular gap between the bottom of your mounts and the frame they will be a lot stronger, the rests wont droop, and the mounts wont get bent if you are riding rocky terrain.

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"
