Knee pain.

Does anyone else suffer from left knee pain caused by constant contact with with the black plastic cover behind the left cylinder intake tract on the 1200/1250 LC. At 6ft 2in perhaps this only occurs with those of similar height.

Get some lowered foot pegs. Fastway makes a nice set. It'll reduce your knee angle and lower where your knee hits the side of the bike.

Agree - lower pegs, perhaps sitting further back in your seat (or an aftermarket seat that sits you further back) may help as well. I'm 6'3" and change, and I occasionally hit the back of the cylinder with my leg, but since I've modified the bike to fit me exactly how I want it, it never happens. I'd forgotten it was an issue, since new pegs and seat was one of the first things I did to my bike.
