1/4" is still a chicken strip. Just a very small one. :) Actually, that might be about the most you can expect from the Busa. Not sure since I've never ridden one, but it's completely possible that you'd be scraping hard parts (pegs) before you got all the way to the edge of the tire. Also, it depends on the tires you're running. Some permit greater lean angles, and thus are more difficult to run all the way to the edge, than others.

1/4th is a chicken strip. I have had bikes frames dragging the ground so a little footpage is ok keep going. a 16th then we are going in the right direction.

When the sidewall of your tire has wear on it,
LOL, I don't think that's gonna happen.....
Nuthin was draggin...I have hit the peg feelers in the past.

I am pleased with the way the bike handles, but it's definitely no GSXR-750/1k.
