I see you are pretty local to me, always welcome to come up and compare what point you are dragging the pegs compared to me. :waving:

I expect with a 25 setting it's an 1800. That's the max setting.

Yes I scrape my pegs with the setting on 25.

If in fact it is an 1800, there are some that don't start to move the ride height until the level reaches a high number, such as 10 or 12 leaving the total adjustment to range between this magic number and 25 which is max. I found that cleaning the reservoir and filling with new fluid makes mine start to increase at level 1 and it continues until it reaches 25, leaving me with a full range of adjustment and not 1/2 the total range.

I scrape the pegs now and then when feeling sporty on a good road. That is with the air all removed from the hydraulic cylinder. No matter how high your bike rides it's going to be possible to shoot a few sparks from the pegs if the turn and speed are right. The first thing I'd do would be to check the suspension. Oregonwinger clued me onto it when I got my 1800. With the bike on it's wheels run the suspension down to the lowest setting and then increase it listening carefully to the pump to see what the reading is when you hear the pump take up the load which makes it groan a bit and slow down some. If the reading is higher than a 1 or so you need to open the cylinder and top if off with fluid. Removing the right saddlebag gives access to the hydraulics.

I've had trouble scraping my pegs, but I found that with a little more throttle and a more aggressive lean I can usually do it, no problem.

Yeah as stated, no trouble with scraping pegs when I want to, it's kind of fun. What I do have trouble with is remembering to pull my feet inward on the pegs so I'm not scraping my boots. :ROFL:

Yep, me too. I keep reminding myself and then remember when I feel my boot toe sliding along the road.
