Engine vs foot

I have one minor annoyance. The right side of the engine bumps against my ankle. Kind of weird they didn't line it up a little different. Thank god for that heat guard on the right side.

Im sure I'll get use to it soon enough.

It could be because im coming from sport bikes and i find myself trying to place my foot further back on a peg that doesn't exist, so i then have to adjust to find the actual peg.

Anyone else with the same problem? Hits right against my right ankle. It's not really uncomfortable, just unexpected.

That's a problem reviewers have noticed.
Personally, I don't have this kind of problems, maybe because I ride with the feet on the edge of the pegs.

I notice that as well when I rode the rebel for the first time. After putting 300 miles on it so far, I hardly notice anymore.

Hm... this is something I'm going to have to check out as I can't remember from the last time I checked the bike out.

It's definitely there but I'm sure over time it can be adjusted to.

It isn't terrible but when you are starting with the bike it is a little weird getting use to. It doesn't really bother me anymore.

I've had many bikes that did that, so I bought proper moto-boots, with inner-and-outer ankle armor, don't feel it anymore. My last bike was bad, when I'd forget to wear the right boots, it would HURT, and make it sore after a while. No problem with TCX moto boots.
