Heel plates

Postby ib12 » Sun Mar 26, 2017 12:27 am

Whoever designed the heel plates as a one piece must have gone home early that day. They scuff like mad and you can't replace them without changing all of the foot rest mount. So to cover the scuffs I did this, not perfect but looks better.

Impressed !! What would it have cost Yamaha to fitted "something" similar & sometimes I even get lube splattering on my left boot {off the chain} because the front sprocket cover has that gap exposing part of the chain . :roll:

Picked it up in November. Didn't really notice when they started to wear but I think it also depends on what boots you wear. I wear TCX sport boots which have heavy heel protection. My previous bike suffered the same but you could replace the heel guards by unbolting them and fitting carbon or steel ones. I would suggest doing what I did with carbon vinyl or the clear film.
Hope this helps, enjoy your new bike.

I stuck some helicopter tape on mine. It will probably fall of, eventually, then I’ll just stick some more on. From more than 2 ft away you can’t see it.
