Hello everyone, Lately I've been trying to jump a 75-85ft. tabletop, Of course my goal is to clear it but for now I'm trying to build up enough courage to do so. Right now I land on the last 3/4 of the jump. I'm about 210 and ride a YZ400 with the stock suspention. Sometimes when I land I land the bike on both wheels at the same time and bottom out. I try to avoid this by bringing my front end up. but sometimes I fail to do this and land wrong. Now here is my question... Like I said before I'm 210lbs. and I'm worried that I might be putting to much stress on my foot pegs when I land. How much pressure can these things take? Are they likely to break? Yesterday, all I did was try to practice this jump and the bike took it's fair share of abuse. How much can these bikes take? What about the metal that holds the foot pegs in place? Are these easy to break?
