Has anyone had a problem getting their knees caught on the fairing?

Mine ar just catching, some times when I come to a stop and putting my feet down my knee catches on the fairing and momenterily puts the fear of god up me thinking i`m gonna fall over, and when riding I find I am having to tuck my legs in all the time, if the fairing was about 2" wider on each side I think the problem would be overcome.

Has anyone else had this prob or done any sort of modification to the fairing?

Yes it's a continuing source of annoyance for many K bikers me included. I am getting a new seat made that gives me more room by mooving me back 40mm.

Yes, very discomforting. I think I would be better on an orignal style seat than the custom on the bike I purchased. kf
