Nope, only time I hit the bottom is a pothole or a speed bump, but I pretty much try to avoid those. So scraping and rubbing isn't a problem for me as you can tell by my bottom fairing. Still have my fork oil, adjusted my suspension to not hop around as much as I would have it if it were to be stock height.^I can't believe that never hit the lower fairing! Did you remove your fork oil and fill it with concrete? My forks compress farther than that leaving the neighborhood.
