So those just move your rearsets up and back about an inch each? Sweet!

The only thing they don't have is a solid mount footpeg, which is another main advantage of an aftermarket unit. I assume you can buy some that fit the stock rearset that are rigid?

That seems like a nobrainer. I want to PC my rearsets... then get some solid mount pegs.

The only thing I'm wondering is if the brackets sacrifice some structural integrity, especially with solid mount pegs. You're extending the lever arm as well as adding more fasteners that could break...

You still got your long ass peg and your long ass feeler. If you are grinding pegs, remove the feelers and adjust your body position because you are making the bike do too much work and you are doing none of it. It takes an awful lot to grind a peg when you are off the bike and if you are riding that well maybe it's time to start saving it for the track. Have you even gotten a knee down yet?

I dont have factory pegs I have aftermarkets. I'm not grinding the pegs, I am hanging off the bike, but not dragging a knee yet, and I wish I were riding that well I'm too slow n cautious And your prolly right about the track regardless of where my skill level is at

Now this question may sound stupid.... but what is the point in changing out the stock rear set and levers (clutch and brake)?... because i dont see a point in it

few diff reasons really. One is clearance n foot positioning, mostly for racing or really really hard twistie riding. Other is looks n better quality over the stock units.

I'm going more for positioning. I hang off the bike so my pegs dont scrap, but I want to see if 1" up n 1" back might be more comfy, and if not I aint out $350 for a set of rearsets

adjustable position and clearance. They also are made to break off in a crash and you can just replace the peg.

I did at the dragon the first trip. Learned body positioning since, so it hasnt happened except for the lowside I had.

Alot of ppl do it purely for cosmetic reasons.

Really if you are draggin pegs on street, you have one of three things wrong with you. 1. Your body position sucks, 2. Your bike's clearance sucks (cruisers), or 3. You are riding extremely hard and you should be on a track.

I dragged pegs with my old lady on the back once.




I was hauling ass down a mountain, body posish sucked and I shoulda been on the track. That was a couple years ago.

So other than aesthetics there really is no need for aftermarket rearsets.

clearance and adjustability of foot position for body height, mainly a racers concern.

Don't forget crash worthiness and modular design (ease of replacing only portions of the rearset, most racers buy lots of spare parts).

Also, they are often available in both regular and GP shift. On bikes where it isn't easy to convert to GP shift with the stock setup, rearsets allow you to do this.

GP shift FTW!

i found some nice ones that were down one back one for cheap and if i had the jack, prolly would of got them , it takes some of the cramped feeling out of the bike, im no racer, but on a long ride it might be worth it

Also looks like the bracket can be turned around so the footpegs would be back and down an inch. That would be for the riders who know how to lean, but don't want their knees bent at a sharp angle. Although it may hit the exhaust on the pictured bike.
