I went from a 02 Honda CBR600F4i to a 04' 400 Burgman.
Everytime I take a corner, I am scared to lean over thinking
something is going to touch. On the left side, there 's the big
black cover sticking out and on the right side the muffler is sticking out.
My question is how far can you lean in a corner?

Yep...you will scrape the centerstand before anything else. At the rate I'm going, I need to budget for a replacement centerstand. :lol:

So if I take off the centrestand, I can lean even more?
You aught to be able to. But I use the centerstand grinding as a measure of when i'm having "too much fun". :wink:

I drag the sidestand foot and the centerstand mounting ear on the left side. The centerstand frame mount is a hard part and WILL put you down. I'm not sure what will drag first on the right side. Anybody? Even with hard parts dragging I'm still not to the edge of the tire.
For all you newbies, if you get into a turn and think you will not make it, don't be afraid to just lean it over more, it will lean a lot more than you think it will and the tires will hold fine.

Thanx

P.S. Some sportbike guys have had a hard time keeping my pace in the twisties, I always tell them I would have been going faster but I was making a capuchino.
