Question for those with aftermarket rearsets

First question is if you had a quick shifter, was it hard to make it work with the new rearsets?

Next question is do they help protect the bike during a crash? I'm thinking the non folding pegs might dig into the ground and cause the bike to flip.

They don't help in case of a moving wreck, they have a tendency to snap off or bend. Also it's almost guaranteed to trash the rearsets if you wreck and atleast need a new footpeg and probably lever too, they're fairly fragile.

. I'm fine with the position of my stock rearsets but I was thinking the fixed pegs might help in a crash.

Actually the fixed pegs are more likely to snap off in a crash.

Well I was going to get my stock ones powdercoated black so I was considering getting aftermarket ones. I don't "need" them but I was thinking if they helped protect the bike I could kill two birds with one stone.

I'll just stick with stock for now.
