Having had the misfortune of grounding out the cans on the Falco i am now in search of hi-level cans.
Anybody know who manufactures Hi Level road legal cans ? I have seen plenty of race cans but i cannot afford the hassle of ridiculously loud race cans.

buy a longer rear shock...unless you already have!

Rene, Shark and Leo Vinci make hi-level road cans. They are more expensive than the race cans tho as they have more 'bits' in them clogging them up!

thanks for the reply...........

I am in the process of replacing the rear shock with a tecnnoflex (thanks Bef). I am then going to raise the front back to the standard settings.
Silly question..........Will this prevent the cans from grounding out?

Only time I've grounded out was when a woman (surprize) hit me up the back!

Anything that raises the ride height will improve ground clearance.

A set of low level oval cans won't ground out. The standard cans are like bazookas, touching down quite early. Any slimmer cans should solve the problem. My ovals didn't touch down on the track even though the pegs were well ground away.

Jamsfalco, my low level ovals don't touch the ground, not even while grinding the hero-blob-less pegs.
And not even with BenW riding it!

NOOOOOooooooooo thats not what i wanted to hear...... I have opted for the Hi Level Renegades with the db killer fitted .

If i cant tell the missus they will stop the grounding out can i tell her that they will at least keep her hands and bum cheeks warm !!!

Thanks to all
